Versity, a new alternative protein source for companion animals, was introduced by ADM Animal Nutrition, a division of Archer Daniels Midland. Versity is a highly palatable dried yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) alternative to conventional plant and animal proteins that delivers a balanced profile of essential amino acids with low levels of fat and calcium. Versity was created to provide nutritional flexibility in pet food and treat formulation.
According to recently released research from the animal health and nutrition company Alltech, Inc., a mannan rich fraction (MRF) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae's cell wall may affect the metabolism of bacteria such as E. coli and improve their sensitivity to antibiotics. the digestive system.
