Appeal Your Customers With Valena in The Mix!

At Kemin, we understand healthy plants need more than just care as they grow – they need a great start with the best possible growing media. 

Valena™ is a novel fertilizer and sustainable solution for growing media manufacturers.

In the race to find the most innovative and groundbreaking soil enhancements for your plants, you may run into many trendy soil formulas that various industry players promote. You want something new and innovative, but also something that's been rigorously tested and comes from a company you can trust.

Valena is a natural material derived from Euglena gracilis, a paramylon-rich type of unicellular algae that, when added in the growing media, primes the soil for optimal plant growth. 

Because your customers - young plant growers - deserve the highest quality media foundation; Valena offers novel options for researchers searching for new ideas and innovative solutions to build new formulas.
