New animal plasma alternative launched

EW Nutrition is pleased to announce the release of PROMOTE PR70 (PR), a complete replacement for animal plasma for all types of piglet diets. The product is a blend of natural ingredients that can replace entirely all functions of animal plasma.

As it is well known, plasma exerts its beneficial effects through its concentration in immunoglobulins. PR has been fortified with a comparable source of immunoglobulins, designed specifically for young pigs, from hyper-immunized eggs. In addition, the immunoglobulins in PR have higher affinity and avidity than those in animal plasma, making thus PR even more effective, especially against pathogens causing diarrhea in young pigs.

PR contains a proprietary blend of high-quality dairy and vegetable proteins treated specifically to attain a high level of digestibility, comparable to that of plasma. These proteins, which include whey protein, potato protein, wheat gluten, soy protein, and pea protein, also have their own functional properties contributing to enhanced gastrointestinal health as supported by numerous trials worldwide. Finally, PR is fortified with sodium and chloride to provided levels similar to those in animal plasma.

Research conducted with PR critical components has clearly demonstrated that this innovative technology can improve piglet growth, via enhanced feed intake, up to 40% compared to a negative control without any source of immunoglobulins. In addition, PR can protect against pathogenic scours, an effect not found in animal plasma! A summary of trials is available upon request (info@ew-nutrition.com).
