Designer protein to replace soybean meal

European Protein from Denmark has created Designer Protein that they say will revolutionise the way food is produced on farms across the world.

Their method creates allows for the creation of a 100% GMO free protein targeted to the specific nutritional and health needs of each farm.

The fermentation process that is used degrades 80% or more of all plant ANF and also takes advantage of the abundance and uniqueness of algae.

The process also allows to mix almost any plant or animal protein source and to create almost any amino acid profile.

In pigs it was found that the Designer Protein has a dramatic oeefct on stomach health when combined with rape seed (canola) and dried.

Amongst others, the process utilises lactic acid forming bacteria which have been shown to have a beneficial role in improving gut health.

European Protein was awarded the silver medal for innovation at EuroTier. More information can be found at www.europeanprotein.com
