Durham, N.C. – September 10, 2019 – Arbiom reaches significant milestone on path to commercialize novel alternative protein product for pet food
Arbiom announced the results of a recently completed dog food trial evaluating Arbiom SylPro® as a high-quality alternative protein ingredient for use in pet food. In collaboration with Four Rivers Kennel, and based on guidelines set by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), a dog maintenance study was designed to compare SylPro to chicken meal, a conventional protein ingredient in dog food. The findings indicate that SylPro can be used to replace chicken meal in dog food and deliver equivalent nutritional performance.
“The study results validate that Arbiom’s protein product can be a nutritional, sustainable, natural, and traceable alternative protein ingredient for use in adult dog food,” said Dr. Craig Coon, President of Four Rivers Kennel and Professor at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville. “We saw promising results compared to the control diet in our dogs’ acceptance of the new food and overall health and performance.”
