Produced from yeasts and derivatives, Biorigin's portfolio includes natural solutions that meet claims presented in global pet food product launches in the last three years, and which have both functional and sensorial properties.
The Company's key product within this segment is MacroGard, which will be the highlight of the company’s participation at Nordic Pet Food Conference & Exhibition.
“MacroGard, purified beta-glucan, is a biological response modifier that acts on the natural defenses, balancing their action and contributing to the endurance, health and well-being of pets. Studies conducted with MacroGard have shown positive effects in dogs with different conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, osteoarthritis and obesity. We invite the audience to learn more about beta-glucans at our booth,” complemented Carlos Alberto de Oliveira, Biorigin’s Technical Manager of the Pet segment.
Biorigin's portfolio also includes solutions that “are interesting tools for food manufacturers to differentiate and segment the products according to specific needs, age groups, breed, etc. We have high-protein solutions that improve the attractiveness of the food, which promote the gut health and the maintenance of natural defenses. They also are 100% natural, clean label, GMO Free, GMP+, 100% safe, since they guarantee the traceability of the entire production process from the raw material, and they are also sustainable,” added Oliveira.
