World Food Month: quality and sustainability of production reflects in the global diet
Find out how ICC Brazil’s innovative products contribute to the advances in the animal production chain and its consumers.
The FAO (Foundation of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization) created the World Food Day, and it’s celebrated every October to raise awareness on healthy diets and a hunger-free world. To add to this reflection, we will show how ICC Brazil’s solutions are in compass with the production of sustainable and quality food, contributing to the world population’s supply.
Recent FAO reports point out that the most outstanding issues among the world’s population are obesity and hunger regarding food. While hunger has affected 821 million people worldwide, the proportion of obese adults has reached the equivalent of 672 million adults, in addition to millions of people who are overweight.
To fight these numbers and reduce negative statistics, experts draw attention to the need for food and nutrition safety, sustainable agriculture projects, and changing consumer habits.
Another important matter concerning the world’s eating habits is the reduction of waste. According to FAO, this practice makes it possible to have more food available for more vulnerable populations and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, thus obtaining less pressure on terrestrial and water resources and increasing productivity and economic growth.
Find out how ICC Brazil contributes to the quality of food worldwide
ICC Brazil collaborates with the quality of animal protein and food worldwide, offering products with high effectiveness in controlling pathogens and reducing contamination, providing productivity gains, animal welfare, and more sustainability for businesses, contributing to meals of high nutritional level on the consumers’ table.
And these products can be included in diets and organic production and add more sustainability to the chain, as they are developed from sugarcane yeast, reusing content that would be otherwise discarded by the mills.
During the sugarcane fermentation process for ethanol production, the yeast cream goes through a specific stage, originating many of the ICC Brazil’s portfolio products. Among them, the dry and inactive yeasts undergo a drying process and do not suffer rupture of the cell wall, being a great source of B vitamins, proteins, and glutamic acid.
There are also autolyzed yeasts that, through the rupture of the cell wall, make their rich intracellular content available, and the hydrolysates ones that, after the rupture of the wall, can offer free nucleotides and nucleosides through specific enzymes. Finally, we have the yeast cell walls, with high concentrations of β-glucans and MOS.
And innovation follows manufacturing, being guided by market research, where ICC Brazil identifies the producers’ needs. Based on that, laboratory tests, field tests, and cost-benefit and dosage assessments are carried out to guarantee the producer viability and profitability.
This way, we provide innovative solutions focused on animal performance, health, and food safety. Our mission is to add value to the animal production chain, focused on productivity gains, biosafety, and welfare. Do you want to know them? Check out our portfolio now:
