Menon Renewable Products demonstrates over two hour water stability of MrFeed®

Menon Renewable Products (MRP) demonstrates high quality feed pellet with greater than two hour water stability, during which the pellet retains its integral structure. These water stability properties can be achieved using a proprietary blend of binders and manufacturing methods.

SAN DIEGO, July 30, 2015 – Menon Renewable Products, Inc.
The Menon Innovation team has improved the manufacturing process of MrFeed® in order to achieve the water stability that results in optimal shrimp feeding. High water stability allows the shrimp farmer to provide a greater amount of feed per serving while maintaining high water quality. MrFeed® pellets are produced with a proprietary blend of binding agents and manufacturing methods that result in a pellet that retains its integral structure for several hours after being submerged in water.  The feed pellets retain their crucial make-up integral structure, losing less than 20% of their weight after water submersion for two hours. The portion of the pellet that dissolves in water is a vital part of the pellet design. It is essential for the attractants to dissolve and spread through the water column, to make the shrimp aware that the feed is present. Water stability was observed in a feed study performed by University of Arizona, Aquaculture Pathology School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences.  Suresh Menon Ph.D., President and Founder, “These pellets show that the Menon team has good understanding of how to produce the complete feed product with all the nutritional and physical properties that are required for aquaculture.”
