ADM Partners With U of Illinois for Companion Animal Research



 

ADM Animal Nutrition is teaming up with the University of Illinois Department of Animal Science to further develop and enhance ADM’s portfolio of pet food ingredients and premixes.

In this collaboration, scientists from ADM and the University of Illinois will work together to explore alternative ingredient solutions. The collaboration will focus on using innovative and versatile ingredients like edible beans, peas, ancient grains, complex proteins and vegetable-based omega fatty acids, plus ADM’s portfolio of proprietary ingredients.

Scientists from both groups will examine ways to enhance companion animals’ overall wellbeing by taking a closer look at ingredients that support immunity and gut health by creating favorable conditions for digestion.

“The collaborative work between the Companion Animal Nutrition Program in the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Illinois and ADM aims to generate scholarly projects that will support the education of undergraduate and graduate students and to advance the education and dissemination of scientific findings and innovative solutions for the pet food industry,” said Dr. Maria R. Cattai de Godoy, assistant professor in the Companion Animal Nutrition Program. “This is a synergistic initiative which combines the scientific expertise and research capabilities of our program with ADM’s extensive ingredient portfolio to offer nutritional and health benefits for pets.”

“We are thrilled to work with the team of researchers at the University of Illinois,” said Mike Cecava, research director at ADM. “Their expertise in the field of companion animal nutrition is unmatched. I look forward to our discoveries in 2017.”
