OPTI'PROTEIN - A bio-based ingredient for animal nutrition to reduce protein intake and GHG emissions

The solution aims at producing and market a bio-based ingredient from agricultural by-products. OPTI'PROTEIN provides an innovative solution for farmers, which reduces the intake of soybeans in livestock's diet, and therefore reduce deforestation and GHG emissions. OPTI’PROTEIN stimulates the enzyme production of the stomach and intestinal cells and improves the digestive efficiency of young animals. For soy-using sectors (poultry, pigs, cattle), OPTI'PROTEIN allows 3% savings of protein on their feed formulas. The innovative solution ensures better assimilation of proteins, produced locally and brings a new nutritional approach in breeding, sustainable and profitable.
