Certified premium freeze dried Isochrysis
Provifeed® IsoPrime consists of Isochrysis aff. galbana “Tahitian strain” (T-ISO)(Tisochrysis lutea) that is produced under the most stringently controlled conditions (HACCP and FCA certified by SGS (FCA certificate BE 01/1522.GF)). It is freeze dried according to a proprietary process to yield a premium grade product with the longest shelf life, no nutrient leakage, maintenance of the correct lipid profiles and an ensured bioavailibility of ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids.
Green Water Technique
Due to its processing Provifeed® IsoPrime readily and absolutely disperses into single cells at an average size of 4-8 µm. As a result it retains the characteristic buoyancy of live Isochrysis and remains in the water column for very long periods. Isochrysis is recommended in fin fish larviculture as a Green Water Treatment (esp. turbot and halibut). Use of Isochrysis exerts a positive effect on bacterial communities in larval rearing tanks and significantly improves the overall health and survival rate.
Rotifer and Artemia enrichment
Isochrysis aff. galbana “Tahitian strain” (T-ISO) produced at Proviron accumulates high levels of the ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in readily bioavailable lipid forms. It is also a rich source of carotenoids such as β-carotene, diadinoxanthin and fucoxanthin. The overall high carotenoid content combined with elevated levels of polyphenols and α-tocopherols provides Provifeed® IsoPrime with high antioxidant capacities.
Provifeed® IsoPrime are the algae of choice for DHA enrichment of rotifers and Artemia.
Rotifer culture & (pre)-enrichment
Addition to a Provifeed® NannoPrime diet at ratios up to 20% from day 3 onwards yields vigorous rotifer growth with enhanced fatty acid profiles. Note: The use of Provifeed® IsoPrime is not advised as a sole diet for the cultivation of rotifers.
Essential feed ingredient for early hatchery diets
Provifeed®IsoPrime is the perfect ingredient to increase the essential fatty acids content (esp. DHA) . The algal product is easy to handle in all drying processes used for larval diets.
