ADM Animal Nutrition Launches Versatile Yeast Protein for Dogs and Cats

May 1, 2018

ADM Animal Nutrition, a division of Archer Daniels Midland Company, announced the debut of Versity, a new alternative protein source for companion animals.

Developed to provide nutritional flexibility in pet food and treat formulation, Versity is a highly palatable dried yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisae) alternative to traditional plant and animal proteins that delivers a balanced profile of essential amino acids with low levels of fat and calcium.

“Pet food and treat manufacturers are continuously seeking new protein ingredients that are high- quality, cost-effective and label-friendly,” said Gary Davenport, Ph.D, companion animal technical manager for ADM Animal Nutrition. “Versity has an amino acid profile similar to an egg, but at a more economical price, making it an ideal complementary or replacement protein source for dogs and cats.”

Representatives from ADM Animal Nutrition were set to feature Versity at the 2018 Pet Food Forum, April 23-25, in Kansas City, Missouri. On April 24, Gary Davenport was set to present “Dried Yeast: An Alternative Protein for Dogs and Cats” as part of a breakout session on ingredients.
