LITTLE ROCK, Ark., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Research focusing on H.J. Baker Animal Health and Nutrition's Vegain, the poultry industry's first vegan protein concentrate, will be presented
during the Poultry Science Association's annual meeting being held in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 11-14, 2016.
New Protein Source Meets Demands For "Clean Food"
"Vegain represents the next generation of protein concentrates for the poultry industry," said Dr. Clark Springfield, General Manager, H.J. Baker Animal Health & Nutrition. "In a landmark Texas A&M study, Vegain was shown to help grow larger, more efficient broiler chickens compared to traditional diets featuring animal proteins as well as traditional all-veggie diets using soybean meal. Poultry producers now have an option that will satisfy end consumers without sacrificing bird performance."
Research Abstract And Poster Available For Viewing
Texas A&M University will present research findings to the Poultry Science Association on behalf of H.J. Baker. A scientific poster outlining the research completed on Vegain and the research abstract detailing study findings will also be available to attendees.
"The research on Vegain proves that science and nutrition can work hand-in-hand using chemical-free, antibiotic-free, all-natural ingredients to raise bigger, better birds," Springfield added. "So far interest in Vegain has been substantial."
