Bacterial Protein

Bacterial protein is a protein which is either part of the structure of a bacterium, or produced by a bacterium as part of its life cycle. Proteins are an important part of all living organisms, animals and bacteria are no exception. A great deal of research on bacterial proteins has been proved its advantages.

Our bacterial protein is a novel high-protein feed ingredient. It is produced by continuous bacterial fermentation using a defined mixture of different bacteria (without salmonella) and natural gas as the carbon and energy source. The product is a reddish/brownish nondusty meal containing 60% crude protein on a dry matter basis and a nutritionally well-balanced amino acid composition. The amino acids of bacterial protein meal are well digested by several animal species, including mink, Atlantic salmon, pigs, young chicks, etc. Recent studies have shown that bacterial protein meal is suitable as a major protein source in diets for weanling and slaughter pigs.

Bacterial protein meal offers a potential alternative to fish meal, meat and bone meal, soybean meal, and other vegetable protein sources in animal nutrition. In experiments with minks, chickens, and pigs it has been shown that up to 40% (minks), 20% (chickens), and 50% (pigs) of dietary N can be supplied by bacterial protein meal without affecting nitrogen retention, heat production, and energy retention. Similarly, production experiments with chickens and pigs have shown that up to one third (chickens) and 50% (pigs) of the N can be derived from bacterial protein meal without negative effects on animal performance and production traits.

Compared to fish meal, the content of RNA and DNA is high in bacterial protein meal. The amino acid pattern of bacterial protein meal is similar to that of fish meal, except for somewhat lower lysine and higher tryptophan contents. Compared to soybean meal, in bacterial protein meal the methionine content is slightly higher and cysteine is slightly lower, resulting in a higher total combined content of methionine and cysteine in bacterial protein meal than in soybean meal. From the above, we can see that bacterial protein meal could decrease the cost.
