ADM leverages novel yeast feed additive to support better outcomes in aquaculture
AquaTrax provides a cost-effective functional feed that can help reduce the spread and impact of health challenges in aqua species, as well as improve performance in production.
ADM launched AquaTrax, a new in-feed product for aquaculture species. Developed by ADM’s global feed additives business, Pancosma, AquaTrax harnesses a novel yeast to deliver physiological support in aqua species and consequently enhances production outcomes for aquaculture farmers.
“The AquaTrax brand is expressly for aquaculture and is dedicated to delivering value to aquaculture feed-makers and producers,” said Yoav Rosen, global marketing director, Aquaculture, ADM. “Functional feeds deliver better nutrition, which means healthier fish and shrimp and a healthier production environment. Our solutions are customized to support the diverse conditions of aquaculture farms in specific regions, seasons and circumstances.”
ADM continually expands its animal nutrition solutions portfolio to meet rising global food production demands. As the latest addition to ADM’s aquaculture portfolio, AquaTrax provides a cost-effective functional feed that can help reduce the spread and impact of health challenges in aqua species, as well as improve performance in production.
AquaTrax is based on the novel yeast Pichia guilliermondii. This yeast has a unique morphology and structure that influences its behavior and differentiates it from other yeast-based aqua feed products. For example, recent internal studies have shown that PGY may represent a cost-effective, natural means of reducing the impact of health challenges and improving performance in shrimp production. Thus, AquaTrax may support more sustainable and profitable shrimp production.
AquaTrax is available in global markets, including Latin America and Asia Pacific regions.
