Glendale, CO (Marketwired) - Nutrinsic Corporation (www.nutrinsic.com) is introducing a new sustainable protein product for animal feed. ProFloc™ single cell protein is produced using the Company's patented technology that upcycles nutrients that are currently lost in food and beverage plant wastewater with the added benefit of providing clean water effluent. ProFloc™ contains 60% protein and delivers high digestibility.
The Nutrinsic process involves modifying biological conditions in existing wastewater systems to favor the growth of protein producing bacteria that are safe, non-GMO and native to the system. Nutrinsic then harvests these bacteria in a straightforward process of concentration, drying and sterilizing to produce a single cell protein for inclusion in animal feeds. ProFloc™ has tested favorably among a variety of aquatic and terrestrial animal species, including tilapia, trout, salmon, shrimp, piglets and poultry. Additional feeding studies are underway.
Nutrinsic CEO Leo Gingras summarizes: "ProFloc™ is an excellent source of high quality protein for animal nutrition applications. It has a favorable amino acid profile, high digestibility, long shelf life, and is highly palatable to animals of all types. It is sustainable, produced from food and beverage nutrients that would otherwise be lost and is cost effective."
Nutrinsic is completing construction of its first U.S. ProFloc™ production facility in Trenton, Ohio, which is slated to come on-line by year end 2014.
Nutrinsic is a pioneer in providing commercial nutrition solutions through the upcycling of unused nutrients. By recovering nutrients, Nutrinsic helps food and beverage processors deliver clean water to the environment and eliminate the need to dispose of waste. This process creates an environmentally and economically sustainable source of premium protein for animal nutrition. www.nutrinsic.com.
