Paris, France / Durham, NC, USA – July 16, 2021 – Arbiom today announced the results of a new scientific study evaluating its high-quality alternative protein ingredient SylPro® for use in cat food. The trial, performed in partnership with the Pet Food Program at Kansas State University, found that cats preferred the food formulated with SylPro ® over food formulated with conventional protein ingredients, such as chicken meal and pea protein concentrate.
Arbiom announces results of latest trial evaluating SylPro® for use in Rainbow Trout diets
Paris, France / Durham, N.C. – February 1, 2021: Arbiom today announced the results of a new scientific study evaluating its high-quality alternative protein ingredient SylPro® for use in rainbow trout feed.
“The results of the trout feed study are consistent with previous trial results and once again demonstrate the nutritional and functional performance SylPro offers feed formulators. We are eager to follow-up on these findings, especially as they relate to fish health,” said Ricardo Ekmay, PhD, Senior Vice President of Nutrition and Product Development for Arbiom.

Torula yeast could play dual roles in swine diets, potentially serving to replace both antibiotics and certain costly proteins, according to a new study from the University of Illinois.
Arbiom uses microbial fermentation to transform carbohydrates from wood biomass and residues into a single-cell protein yeast that can be added to food and feed.

“If you walk in a forest, you see mushrooms growing on living trees and we took inspiration from that,” said Marc Chevrel, CEO of US-headquartered start-up Arbiom. “The mushroom is going to release enzymes to make the wood palatable to it and then use it to produce food. We are doing that but in a more systematic, efficient, and industrial way to close the protein gap.”

Torula yeast (Cyberlindnera jadinii) feed on woody biomass left as waste or residues from making wood products. Researchers can extract protein from those yeast. For pet food, torula yeast may have an advantage over other novel proteins.
