In Vitro Protein Digestibility of ME-PRO® in Juvenile White Shrimp
Results of a study conducted at the Oceanographic Institute at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil show that the commercial microbial enhanced protein product, ME-PRO®, has significantly higher levels of hydrolysable protein and a higher predicted apparent protein digestibility than soybean meal and soybean protein concentrate when tested with juvenile Pacific white shrimp.
Shrimp Challenge Study Conducted with ME-PRO®
Results from numerous feeding trials has demonstrated that ME-PRO® can sustain shrimp health, high-performance growth, and feed efficiency and can be considered a functional ingredient in disease prevention for the shrimp aquaculture industry.
ME-PRO® Improves Shrimp Mortality
Disease outbreaks have hurt the global shrimp farming industry with annual losses of over $1 billion. Studies show that ME-PRO® is a promising solution with inclusion levels as low as 1% improving resistance to these diseases associated with high mortalities.
