NatuPro® is an alternative, nutritionally enhanced vegetable protein that allows more controlled release, efficient absorption, and utilisation of amino acids by fish and shrimp.

Controlled release of amino acids

NatuPro® is based on technology of amino acids being glycated to sugars, with glycation being the covalent attachment of a sugar to a protein or lipid. In other words, there is a sugar carrier used to achieve this consistent release of amino acids over time (graph 1).
