Sustainable protein sources
A report we ran on feed manufacturer, Danish Agro, trialing Unibio’s single cell protein (SCP), Uniprotein, in pig diets was our ninth most read story in January.
Arne Ringsing, product manager, Danish Agro, sees Uniprotein as a promising efficient, sustainable protein source with a favorable nutrition profile. “We have already begun the first palatability trials involving piglets of different ages.”
That trial work is part of a Danish research project, funded to the tune of €1.3m by the Green Development and Demonstration Program, an initiative run by the Danish Ministry for Food, Fisheries, Equal Opportunities and Nordic Cooperation. The goal is to validate and optimize the nutritional and functional properties of Uniprotein when used in feed for salmonids and piglets.
Pig trials will be ongoing this year and are set to terminate in 2021, Ringsing told us.
