Parabel has developed two unique and sustainable feed ingredients from Lemna.
- Lemna Protein Concentrate (LPC) – high in Protein
- Lemna Meal (LM) – high in Fiber
Lemna Protein Concentrate is a Protein and Energy rich ingredient particularly suitable for monogastric, aqua and pet diets.
- Essential Amino Acid concentration higher than other Plant Protein ingredients
- Amino Acid profile that is most comparable to Animal Proteins, including high grade Fishmeal
- Energy density and digestibility higher than Maize
- Rich in Macro Minerals (including Non-Phytic Phosphorus), Naturally Chelated Trace Elements, Vitamins and other Phytochemicals such as Carotenoids and Flavonoids
Lemna Meal is a high quality, Plant Fiber product suitable for all animals, and particularly ruminants and horses.
- High in Cellulose (30%) and Hemicellulose (20%) but low in Lignin (6%) making it easily digestible by herbivorous animals
- Also provides 16-20% high quality Protein
- Concentrated Naturally Chelated Trace Elements (Zn, Cu, Mn, Se, Fe) and Macro Minerals (Ca, P, Mg)
Independent research has validated the use of both ingredients.
