Calysta logo

Calysta, Inc., Menlo Park, CA, is an innovator in sustainable products to improve worldwide food security. Calysta develops and commercializes FeedKind protein, an alternative feed ingredient for fish, livestock and pet nutritional products.

FeedKind protein is an innovative, competitively priced fish feed ingredient produced from naturally occurring microbes found in soils worldwide. Using a natural fermentation process similar to making yeast, these microbes produce a nutritious, high protein feed that is a sustainable alternative to high protein feed ingredients such as fishmeal.

FeedKind protein is a natural, traceable and safe non-animal source of protein produced using the world’s only commercially validated gas fermentation process. FeedKind protein is non-GMO, and approved for sale and use in fish and livestock feeds as well as pet food in the EU.  It has been extensively tested on multiple fish species, including Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout, as well as in swine and poultry.

The product is nutrient dense, highly stable with very little fiber content, no mercury, and a high fat content that can reduce the need for supplemental fats. It will be shipped and supplied dry as powder or pellets.
