“When it comes to Gain PRO, I really do think that exclamation marks are called for.” OddGeir Oddsen, managing director of ProChaete, can hardly contain his enthusiasm for the feed additive Gain PRO.
“With its unique blend of ingredients and nutritional benefits, Gain PRO is not only a high-quality protein source for feed, but also a great example of the kind of product the world needs right now to provide
a growing population with healthy food.”
As the world’s population grows and climate change challenges us, the need for more efficient use of our resources is more important than ever.
“When you eat shrimp, you only eat about half of it. The rest (head and shell) is usually discarded. By-products of shrimp farming are by and large regarded as waste – which means you’re throwing away half of your product. That’s just bad business, both for the company and the planet.”
Gain PRO is the result of ProChaete’s philosophy. “I am proud to work at a company whose core values are innovation and sustainability. This is very inspiring and motivates me to focus on finding ever better ways to develop healthy and sustainable business that’s also profitable.”
Fresh, functional and future-proof
Gain PRO is a powder made from the by-product of shrimp production that can be added to feed. There are many varieties in the feed market that use by-products from food production, but what sets Gain PRO apart is that the raw material is fresh.
“Shrimp deteriorates quickly, especially in hot climates. Fermentation and rot start almost immediately, causing a loss of nutrients. But if you harvest the heads and shells while they’re still fresh, you have a raw material that is a valuable and versatile resource for feed manufacturers.”
Gain PRO has many functional qualities that other feed additives lack. Minerals and vitamins are essential of course, but Gain PRO also contains high levels of antioxidants and natural pigments. It also has a pro-biotic effect that helps digestion and nutrient intake, providing a healthier feed for the fish or animal.
“I hope that feed manufacturers will discover the positive effects of Gain PRO and that it will inspire them to use by-products more effectively. While Gain PRO is a great the solution to more sustainable food production is something that requires a collective effort across the entire business.”
“With its unique blend of ingredients and nutritional benefits, Gain PRO is not only a high-quality protein source for feed, but also a great example of the kind of product the world needs right now to provide a growing population with healthy food.”
