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.

Hello Tomorrow is global organisation on a mission to unlock the power of deep technologies to tackle our toughest environmental, social & industrial challenges.
In the search for new resources to help bridge the protein supply-demand gap, much of the focus has centered on a two-sided question. How to increase protein production while also addressing sustainability challenges? How can we produce more food using less resources and reducing agriculture’s impact on the environment?
Technology is poised to play an increasingly important role in meeting protein supply-demand needs as market requirements continue to evolve and expand. New single-cell-based protein solutions offer promising ingredients for feed formulators, farmers and, ultimately, end consumers, bridging the gap between agronomy and industry and opening up the door to a new era of renewable resources that can be utilized to meet market demands head-on.
Ricardo Ekmay, PhD, Arbiom’s Animal Nutrition Director, explores the promising potential of single-cell protein as one solution to the global challenge of safely and sustainably feeding the future.

Arbiom was recognized for its proprietary bioconversion process technology, which converts wood into SylPro® enhanced torula yeast, a high-quality alternative to fish meal as a protein source in fish feed. SylPro is a nutritional, economical, traceable and sustainable protein-rich ingredient with enhanced amino acid content that has been developed to meet the needs of aquaculture farmers and feed formulators who are faced with two critical challenges: protein sourcing and gastrointestinal health.
“With fish meal supply shortages and price volatility, the aquaculture industry is trending towards alternative protein sources in feeds,” said Amélie Drouault, Partnerships Manager at Arbiom. “Our technology is addressing these concerns by integrating wood – a historically non-food material – into the food supply chain, producing a natural, sustainable and traceable protein source that is industrially scalable.”
