A Sustainable Plant-Based Protein Ingredient for Pet and Aquaculture feed

Scoular has announced the name for its new sustainable and innovative barley-based protein source for aquaculture and pet food: Emerge™. Emerge, both traceable and non-GMO is the only barley-based protein for feed customers. 


  • Flavor Neutral
  • Natural Color
  • High Protein
  • High Digestibility
  • Low Phosphorus 
  • Non-GMO
  • Made in USA
  • Sustainable

“As the demand for clean-label protein grows, both the aquaculture and pet food industries are seeking alternative and sustainable plant-based protein sources,” said Scoular manager JC Olson. “Emerge is a high-quality ingredient to meet this demand for the feed ingredient supply chain.” 

Barley, an ancient grain, is sustainable because it contributes to water conservation systems and is grown in areas where it does not contribute to deforestation of rainforest ecosystems. In aquaculture, Emerge is highly digestible, helping to reduce phosphate discharge and water pollution.  

For pet food, Emerge delivers a neutral flavor and natural color. In dog feeding trials measuring palatability, it was equal or superior to both animal and vegetable protein sources. 

Olson said Emerge is created through a patented process that concentrates the protein naturally found in whole barley kernels, creating a nutrient-dense product. Scoular expects to begin producing Emerge in September after completing construction on its manufacturing facility in Jerome, Idaho.
