A sustainable pellet binder for aquafeeds

Intact Aqua™ is a new, environmentally friendly pellet binder that has been formulated especially for the aquafeed industry. The product can replace PMC/synthetic binders in different types of aquafeeds, without compromising on water stability.

One of the main challenges for a shrimp feed producer is to reach the desired conditioning temperature, which is essential to fully utilise the binding properties of the natural components. Intact Aqua allows production at a higher temperature (e.g. 105°C) without compromising valuable key nutrients and process equipment.

Furthermore, Intact Aqua enables more stable operating conditions, with fewer blockages and a more constant resistance in the die, which lead to less variation and reduced amount of fines in the finished product.

Intact Aqua should be used at the same inclusion rate as synthetic binders.


  • Optimum water stability
  • Can replace PMC/synthetic binders
  • Possible to produce pellets at higher temperatures
  • Low inclusion rate (from 0.3%)
  • Stable operating conditions
  • Reduced energy consumption and/or higher production rate
  • Cost-effective
