ADM Animal Nutrition, a division of Archer Daniels Midland
Co., has debuted an alternative protein source
for companion animals
Developed to provide nutritional flexibility in pet food and treat formulation, Versity is a highly palatable dried yeast
Saccharomyces cerevisiae alternative to traditional plant and animal proteins
that delivers a balanced profile of essential amino acids with low levels of fat
and calcium, said company officials.
“Pet food and treat manufacturers are continuously seeking new protein
ingredients that are high quality, cost-effective and label friendly,” said Gary
Davenport, Ph.D., companion animal technical manager for ADM Animal
Nutrition in Quincy, Ill. “Versity has an amino acid profile similar to an egg,
but at a more economical price, making it an ideal complementary or replacement protein source for dogs and cats.”
