ZIVO and NutriQuest conclude two algal poultry studies

October 11, 2017
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

ZIVO Bioscience, Inc. (ZIVO) a biotech/agtech R&D company engaged in the commercialization of nutritional and medicinal products derived from proprietary algal strains, has announced results from two poultry studies designed and supervised by animal nutrition strategic partner NutriQuest, LLC. The two studies, focused on broiler production, provided encouraging results on the benefits of including a proprietary strain of dried algal biomass in broiler feed under several real-world challenges. This development advances the prospective market entry of a ZIVO phytogenic feed ingredient for poultry applications.

Toward that end, ZIVO is currently finalizing compliance for its algal biomass as a food ingredient, and simultaneously working to advance compliance as a poultry feed ingredient, per the current regulatory paradigm. The Company has looked to the end of 2017/early 2018 as the target timing to convene a GRAS panel review for self-affirmation in humans, to be followed closely by an NDI (New Dietary Ingredient) application for humans. Regulatory approval for a poultry feed ingredient is expected in the first half of 2018 and the Company is now working on plans to scale up production to meet the market needs of the broiler industry.

NutriQuest has scheduled additional studies for this fall to further define use rates, application and the full potential value of the ZIVO algal ingredient. NutriQuest’s research is focused on developing applications that significantly enhance poultry producers’ position and profitability. The ZIVO/NutriQuest partnership will help speed entry into global markets and ramp up the adoption rate of the ZIVO phytogenic ingredient with producers.

With a large US swine customer base and growth in the poultry, ruminant and international sectors, the NutriQuest portfolio of solutions includes research-based feed additives, protein technologies, nutritional monitoring services, water quality products, and humane euthanasia technology, among others that improve performance and cost position to the producer.

ZIVO Bioscience, Inc. is a Michigan-based biotech company engaged in the investigation of the health and nutritional benefits of bioactive compounds derived from its proprietary algal cultures, and the development of natural bioactive compounds for use as dietary supplements and food ingredients, as well as biologically derived and synthetic candidates for medicinal and pharmaceutical applications in humans and animals, specifically focused on autoimmune and inflammatory response modulation.
