Wheat Gluten Pellets As Protein Nutrient Additive For Aquaculture Increase Feed Nutrition

Introduction of Wheat Gluten Pellets

Wheat Gluten Pellets, also known as gluten, active gluten and active wheat protein, is a natural protein extracted from wheat (flour). It is light yellow and composed of a variety of amino acids. The protein content is as high as 82.2%. It contains 15 kinds of amino acids necessary for human body. It is a rich plant protein resource with viscosity, elasticity, extensibility, film forming and fat absorption, It is the basic raw material of high-grade aquatic feed and is favored by aquaculture industry.

Vital wheat gluten pellet is a vital wheat gluten for the feed manufacturing, obtained by physical extraction from wheat and processed to cylindrical pellet by physical extrusion. It is insoluble in water. This protein appears as a fine, slightly yellowish pellet and has a typical wheat taste.


Application of Wheat Gluten Pellets

The aquaculture industry is rapidly growing, approximately 50% of all fish consumed by humans comes from aquaculture. Good nutrition is important for the quality of the fish and shrimp. Plant proteins, such as vital wheat gluten are an ideal and highly functional alternative to fish and animal based feeds.

Vital wheat gluten offers perfect properties to provide the binding needed for the pellet or granule forms of feed commonly used. Vital wheat gluten’s water insolubility reduces pellet breakdown; its viscoelastic properties can provide a chewy texture preferable to an extremely hard pellet; it lends itself to extrusion and air incorporation, depending on whether surface or bottom feeding is desired; and it provides nutritional value.


Feed industry:
The protein content of vital wheat gluten pellets is high and the amino acid composition is relatively complete. In the feed industry, its excellent protein source can be used as high-grade animal and pet feed. In the process of feed processing, as long as vital wheat gluten pellets and other food proteins are mixed in proportion, according to the characteristics of animal feed and its lack of essential ingredients, a variety of animal specific feed can be made.

High quality vital wheat gluten pellet has “light and mellow” or “particulate flavor”. When mixed with other ingredients, it can be said that it has complete color, fragrance and flavor, especially suitable for all kinds of pet tastes, which greatly improves the utilization rate of feed.
