Antioxidants: solutions to protect the quality of pet foods and treats

Oxidation causes rancidity, making the flavors and smells of pet foods unappealing and risking rejection by both pets and pet parents. It also decreases nutritional value. Our antioxidants help maintain a quality eating experience for pets and higher product satisfaction for owners.

Antioxidants in pet food: the earlier, the better

Renderers commonly add antioxidants to raw materials before processing, as well as directly to the resulting fats, meals, and oils prior to packaging.

Antioxidants may also be used at the pet food manufacturer’s plant to protect these ingredients during storage and extrusion. A final application when fat is applied in top coating can help preserve lipids during the kibble’s entire shelf life.
