OUR PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES

As a larval feed producer, BernAqua uses high quality marine proteins. Our aim is to develop and constantly optimize feeds of high nutritional and technological quality. The production technologies (e.g. agglomeration and cold extrusion) are developed to minimize denaturation and ensure the availability of those essential proteins in the feed.

AGGLOMERATION

AGGLOMERATION IS THE PRODUCTION PROCESS OF EXCELLENCE FOR FISH AND SHRIMP LARVAL FEEDS

Nutritionally rich

Agglomeration meets the nutritional needs of young larvae. This process neither denatures proteins nor damages microcapsules.

High Quality

Produces highly water stable feeds

Requires deep expertise & know-how

This technology requires skills and expertise to deliver the results of excellence in nutrition

Used in the production process of:

COLD MICRO EXTRUSION/MARUMERIZATION

MICRO EXTRUSION (MARUMERIZATION) IS THE PRODUCTION PROCESS, WHICH FULLY MEETS THE NUTRITIONAL NEEDS OF FISH AND SHRIMP

Improves nutrition and shelf life

Lower levels of heat and shear in the extruder mean less lipid oxidation in the feed

Rich in proteins

Cold Micro Extrusion does not denature proteins

Allows the best control of feed shape

This unique BernAqua’s process controls water stability

Used in the production process of:

SPRAY DRYING

USED IN THE PRODUCTION OF MICROENCAPSULATED INGREDIENTS, SPRAY DRYING IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT WAY OF PRODUCING DRY POWDER FORMULATIONS

Stability

The dry powders after spray drying are physically and chemically stable

Multiple nutritional advantages

It has many advantages over other technologies for bioactive food components such as minerals, vitamins, unsaturated oils and flavors

Consistency and customisation

Consistent particle size and morphology create effective powders suitable for our customers’ needs

Used in the production process of:

3T Algae by BernAqua

WET MILLING AND PROTEIN MICROCAPSULES

BERNAQUA’S MICRO ENCAPSULATION TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN INTRODUCED IN 2000 AND IT IS STILL UNIQUE IN THE WORLD

Complexity

Our complex microcapsules are lipid beads trapped in a protein matrix mainly composed of fresh fish

Total nutritional delivery

Our microcapsules are more than just microcapsules. They constitute a total nutritional delivery system with best quality ingredients

High quality ingredients

BernAqua uses freshly frozen fish of the highest quality as raw materials

Used in the production process of:

EMULSION AND LIPID MICROCAPSULES

OIL IN WATER EMULSION (O/W) IS TYPICALLY A ‘MAYONNAISE’ KIND OF MIXTURE. WATER IN OIL EMULSION (W/O) WILL BE TYPICALLY A ‘BUTTER’ KIND OF MIXTURE. LIPID BOOSTER HAVE BEEN TRADITIONALLY SOLD AS OIL IN WATER (O/W) EMULSIONS.

Efficiency

Oil micro capsules are the new generation boosters

Better control of bacteria

Oil microcapsules offer little or no available nutrients for the growth of bacteria during enrichment

Resistance 

BernAqua’s microcapsules retain water-soluble components of a diet when immersed in water
