By July 18, 2019 July 22nd, 2019 Press Releases

Durham, N.C. – July 18, 2019 – Arbiom today announced results of recently completed scientific studies evaluating Arbiom’s product as a high-quality alternative protein ingredient for use in aquafeed. The studies, conducted in collaboration with researchers at Texas A&M University, one of the leading aquaculture programs in the U.S., were designed to compare Arbiom’s protein product SylPro to conventional plant and animal protein sources, evaluating both its material handling properties and nutritional performance.

The findings indicate that SylPro can be used to replace fish meal or plant-based proteins in hybrid striped bass diets and deliver equivalent nutritional performance as conventional protein sources up to 20 percent inclusion level. Further, SylPro showed an exceptional crude protein digestibility of 97%.

“The results of these studies are a critical and promising step in validating the effectiveness of SylPro as we continue to scale-up Arbiom’s Wood to Food platform and bring our first commercial product to the market,” said Ricardo Ekmay, PhD, Vice President of Nutrition for Arbiom.   View Full Press Release
