Introducing the BiomassProtein™ grass protein with higher content of essential amino acids for poultry will increase the sustainability of organic poultry production using local grown plant material, while decreasing the strong dependency for soy bean import in Europe. 

The BiomassProtein™ grass protein has a high methionine content and the beta-carotene content has a positive effect on yolk color.​

Studies with layers have shown that substituting soy beans with grass protein in layers had no effect on egg production, egg weight, feed intake or feed conversion rate, compared to the control group. 

However, there was a significant and positive effect on yolk color, where lightness was lower and yellowness and redness higher with increasing inclusion of grass protein. (link to article)
