Amino Acid Profile
The below interactive diagram illustrates the amino acid profile of Uniprotein® in comparison with that of high-quality fishmeal (LT Fishmeal).
As shown, the amino acid profile of Uniprotein®is nutritionally favorable with a high content of most of the essential amino acids expressed as percent of lysine.
The fatty acids are mainly the saturated palmitic acid (approximately 50%) and the monounsaturated palmitoleic acid.
The mineral content of the product is favorable with high amounts of phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.
Animals typically require a diet containing proteins with the 20 essential and non-essential amino acids. Proteins are the building blocks of plant cells and are also an important source of carbon and nitrogen for animals as well as for humans.
Plant proteins have a low content of the essential amino acids methionine and lysine, and these must be added to the animal feed. Bacteria, fungi or products acquired from animals (i.e. fishmeal) have proteins with a ”perfect” amino acid profile and can thus be a vital protein supplement in the diet for animals.
