Empyreal 75

Sustainable plant-based solution that’s rich in amino acids and rich in profit from the mill to the pond.

Empyreal 75 is a plant-based, sustainable protein concentrate that allows aquafeed producers to create more reliable, higher-value products for their customers. Empyreal 75 can replace more expensive protein sources, such as fishmeal and animal protein. And its protein density allows for higher energy density, which in turn allows for more flexibility in diet design. It also has superior binding and physical characteristics to hold kibble integrity, eliminating the need for expensive binders. And because Empyreal 75 is a manufactured product and not a by-product, you can depend on it to be nutritionally consistent and provide the same functional advantages every time.

Empyreal 75’s benefits reach far beyond manufacturing and improve your customer’s business, too. It’s nutrient-dense, highly digestible and delivers essential and functional nutrients to promote growth and health in your customers’ animals. This allows animals to eat less but gain weight faster. And this improved feed conversion decreases the number of days on feed, which means higher productivity for the farm.

Quick Facts

  • Plant protein concentrate
  • Essential and functional nutrients
  • Low starch content
  • Improved feed conversion
  • Higher quality kibble
Formulation Advantages

Empyreal 75 is a plant-based, naturally pure protein concentrate that can either replace or complement animal proteins in an aquaculture diet. This can both reduce formulation costs and allow more room in the diet for formulation flexibility. Empyreal 75 has low levels of ash and magnesium. It’s also a great source of many essential and functional nutrients, including methionine, glutamic acid and linoleic acid to name a few. It’s virtually starch-free, and works with practically any diet to improve pellet and kibble quality.

Quick Facts 

  • Plant-based protein concentrate
  • No added preservatives
  • Low levels of ash and magnesium
  • Essential and functional nutrients
  • Pellet and kibble quality

Manufacturing Benefits

Empyreal 75’s superior extrusion functionality results in smoother kibble surfaces. Because less water is needed for extrusion, you reduce your drying requirements and lower your energy costs. Empyreal 75 also provides greater control of expansion during extrusion with reduced fines. And the exceptional binding capability of Empyreal 75 eliminates the need for expensive binding agents in pellet applications.

As an insoluble protein, Empyreal 75 is perfect for combining with fats and with other proteins that have low water requirements. These hydrophobic properties—along with its superior commingling and fat-binding properties—maintain kibble integrity once it’s in the water. This minimizes nutrient loss and extends the time the feed is viable in the water.

Quick Facts
  • Insoluble protein
  • Superior commingling and fat-binding properties
  • Smoother kibble surfaces
  • Excellent binding properties
Kibble Quality

As a higher-quality ingredient, Empyreal provides a higher-quality kibble. Empyreal 75 provides a more uniform cell structure for extrusion, so you can count on it to deliver consistent results from one kibble to the next. Even though Empyreal 75 is gluten free, it provides gluten-like functionality in its elasticity, binding, coating, commingling, fat binding and expansion—all while resulting in a smooth surface and without the need of binders.

Quick Facts
  • Superior extrusion qualities for reduced fines and greater fat inclusion
  • Gluten-like functionality
  • Eliminates need for expensive binders
  • Smooth kibble surface
  • Reduced fines
Food Safety

Empyreal 75 is heated to a minimum of 145º F/63º C for no less than 60 minutes to destroy harmful bacteria, improve stability and prolong shelf life. We then run it through a drying process that reduces the water activity to less than 0.65 percent.

Our strict quality control guidelines contributed to Empyreal’s manufacturing facilities being named the first animal food ingredient facilities in the United States to receive the Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000). Our proprietary manufacturing processes ensure food safety, reduce the levels of mycotoxins and ensure there are no anti-nutritional factors (ANF) or other undesirable compounds. In addition to food-grade packing and lined bulk containers, we also have our own dedicated fleet of trailers and railcars specifically designed to move our product safely and securely.

Every year, several third-party auditors evaluate our facilities, procedures and load-out areas for good manufacturing practices.

Quick Facts
  • Heated to a minimum of 145º F/63º C for no less than 60 minutes
  • Only facilities to achieve FSSC 22000 certification
  • Dedicated fleet of railcars and trailers for delivery in order to ensure no contamination
  • Food-grade packaging and lined containers
  • Annual auditing process by objective third parties
Regulatory Qualifications

The Association of American Feed Control Officials designated Empyreal 75 as AAFCO 48.89 Corn Protein Concentrate. Corn Protein Concentrate is the dried proteinaceous fraction of the corn primarily originating from the endosperm after removal of the majority of the nonprotein components by enzymatic solubilization of the protein stream obtained from the wet-mill process. This proteinaceous fraction of the corn must contain not less than 80% protein and not more than 1% starch on a moisture-free basis.

This fraction shall be free of fermented corn extractives, corn germ meal and other nonprotein components except in such amounts as might occur unavoidably in good manufacturing processes. Vegetable oils or other appropriate ingredients defined in Section 87 in the Association of American Feed Control Officials Official Publication (AAFCO OP) may be added in concentrations not to exceed 3% to reduce dust during handling. The name of the conditioning agent must be shown as an added ingredient.
