By 2025, we will need an extra 60 million tonnes of animal protein to feed the world. Current sources will not be enough. The present trend is therefore to reduce the level of less sustainable sources of animal protein, such as fishmeal or plasma, and reformulate diets by modifying formulas to maintain a balance between palatability and digestibility, richness in nutrients, and price.
Prosaf® is a highly purified and functional yeast extract with a high protein content (› 63%) mainly consisting of highly digestible essential amino-acids and low molecular size peptides. It is rich in glutamic acids, nucleic acids, and B-complex vitamins.
Adding Prosaf® to animal feeds has been seen to improve palatability and protein digestibility, resulting in better feed efficiency and growth performance.
Prosaf® is a premium yeast extract obtained from the primary culture of a proprietary Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain. The yeast cells are autolysed before centrifugation to separate the yeast extract from the yeast cell wall. The strain selection and standardisation process guarantees high quality and batch-to-batch consistency. Prosaf® contains only small functional active components, with more than 88% of peptides below 3.6 kDa and 38% below 1 kDa, which makes them highly digestible.
Prosaf® is a source of essential amino acids, such as lysine, that can complete the plant protein profile in low-fishmeal diets, with a high content of digestible amino acids compared with soybean meal. Prosaf® also contains a high level of glutamic acid, an amino acid known to be highly appetising.
