PET Food Processing - June 2021 - 34

INGREDIENTS
pet food, according to the report, " Pet Food: Including
the Impact of COVID-19, " from Chicago-based Mintel.
" Typically, staple fruits and vegetables consumed
in human diets are also used in pet food formulas, "
Matthews said. " This list includes sweet potatoes, potatoes,
carrots, blueberries and cranberries.
" The formats that work best in each application
depend on the objective of the pet food or treat, " he
added. " While some diets focus on limited-ingredient
demand, other formulas have objectives that look to replace
vitamins and minerals with whole fruits and vegetables,
while other foods or treats desire piece identity

various fruits and vegetables,
it is possible to naturally
capture some of the essential
vitamins and minerals. "

of the individual fruit and vegetable ingredient. "
In kibble, dried fruits and vegetables in meal, powder
or piece form are most economical. With canned, refrigerated
and frozen pet food, semi-dry, fresh or individually
quick-frozen ingredients are often preferred.
" Potatoes and sweet potatoes have proven to be highly
digestible, " Matthews said. " They are an excellent solution
for 'sensitive digestion' recipes, which are valued by
small breed dog owners, who now represent nearly half
of the dog population. "
Genetically modified ingredients are a concern to
some pet parents. The same is true of where the fruit or
vegetable was grown and how it was processed.
" Avoiding GMO's results in avoiding corn, wheat and
soybeans, " Matthews said. " Many discerning pet food
shoppers view vegetables and fruits as more suitable nonGMO
alternatives to other ingredients in the market. "
Addressing this demand, Augustine said, " We can help
formulators create cleaner labels with our US-grown, 100%
fruit and vegetable powders. To eliminate or minimize
non-clean-label ingredients, formulators can use fruit and
vegetable ingredients to replace grains in their products. "
A growing number of brands are trying to stop using
COLORS FROM
FRUITS AND
VEGETABLES
There is a clear connection between
consumer food preferences and
the choices consumers make for
their pets' food, said Tammi Geiger,
marketing manager, North America,
Oterra (formerly Chr. Hansen Natural
Colors). When it comes to color,
natural offers brands some specific
advantages.
Not all natural colors are created
equal. Just like in human foods,
formulators of pet foods and treats
are increasingly opting for colors
derived from fruits and vegetables
and making such claims on product
packages. Common color sources
are black and orange carrots, red
pepper (paprika), red radish and
red beet. Other plant-based colors
include annatto and turmeric.
Oterra has a new range of
clean-label red colors based on its
proprietary sweet potato, which took
more than 10 years of selective
breeding using traditional, non-GMO
methods to develop. The result is
a plant-based, brilliant red that is a
natural alternative to carmine and
synthetic colors.
Some natural colors tend to be
heat, shear and pressure sensitive.
Thus, they must be added to the
production process at the right time
for the best result.
" Exposure to oxygen can also
influence the shade of some natural

pigments, " added Rikke Sakstrup
Frandsen, global industry business
manager. " The more air that is
incorporated during the production
process, the lighter the final shade.
Coating kibble and treats with fat and
oil also impacts color. "
Ashlee Martin, senior application
scientist, said, " Wet pet food is made
by mixing recipe ingredients together
and cooking direct within a can, tray
or pouch. Colors can be added at
any step before filling. The major
heat step - retort - will always be
done after color is added, so heatstable
colors are recommended. "
Color adds cost to a formulation.
Because it is mostly added for pet
parent appeal, visual sensory testing
is a smart investment.
