DES MOINES, Iowa, May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kemin Nutrisurance, the pet food and rendering technologies division of Kemin Industries, recently launched PRALISUR™, a natural product containing 1,3-beta-glucans (ß-glucans) that may support a healthy immune system, and promotes canine gut health, in Europe.
ß-glucans, glucose polysaccharides naturally occurring in the cells of plants, cereals and fungi, have been shown to stimulate and activate the immune systems of dogs.1 PRALISUR, has one of the highest concentrations of linear 1,3-ß-glucans from dried algae.
"As we focus more on healthy, nutritious pet food ingredients, we're adding one of the only pure sources of 1,3-ß-glucans to our portfolio in Europe," said Alberto Munoz, Associate Product Manager, Kemin Nutrisurance. "Pet owners' growing interest in the quality and healthiness of their pets' food led us to launch PRALISUR."
The launch of PRALISUR adds to the Kemin Nutrisurance new health and nutrition product segment, which serves consumers' growing demand for nutrition with health benefits for their pets. The segment also includes the PROSURANCE™ line of high-quality, spray-dried products and low molecular weight products that provide proteins and palatability support for companion animal diets.
Kemin Nutrisurance debuted PRALISUR last week at Interzoo, the world's biggest trade fair for the international pet industry, in Nuremberg, Germany.
