First NextGenProteins Feed for Broilers and Fishes

In a joint work of Amadori, Naturalleva, UNIBO and TTZ, the first batch of feed including Microalgae, insects and Single Cell Proteins as the main source of protein were produced. 

Taking the nutritional needs of the broilers and fishes as well as the nutritional and physical characteristics of Microalgae, insects and Single Cell Proteins into account, feeds containing the alternative proteins were formulated and produced at pilot plant level using pelleting and extrusion technology. 

Before starting Dose-response and field trials the feeds are currently analysed for proximate composition, density, floating rate, expansion, texture, durability, oil leaking, pore dimension, starch gelatinization rate and water stability.
