such as eggs, lamb, rabbit and turkey, as well as whole
grains, namely quinoa.
Duck has become quite popular in this space, as it is
a nutritious and flavorful lean meat. It is comparable in
fat and calories to a skinless chicken or turkey breast and
an excellent source of selenium and zinc, nutrients critical
for proper cellular metabolism. Duck is a red meat,
which means it contains higher amounts of iron than
other poultry.
Merrick Pet Care, Evanston, Ill., has de-boned duck as
the first ingredient in its limited-ingredient pâté formulated
to provide complete and balanced nutrition for cats
with food sensitivities and sensitive stomachs. The product
is grain and potato free, as well as void of artificial
colors, flavors and preservatives.
Alligator meat is emerging as a sustainable ingredient
Avoiding cross

facility is especially
important for limitedingredient

for pet food. It is typically processed into a dry format,
making it a concentrated source of protein that is well
tolerated by cats and dogs.
Kemin Nutrisurance, Des Moines, Iowa, markets hydrolyzed,
spray-dried whitefish that is about 90% protein
and less than 0.5% fat. This composition makes it
useful in low-density cat diets, as it allows formulators
to hit nutritional requirements while maximizing topical
fat application to drive palatability in these challenging
formulations.
Duck is popular in single-protein formulations for its nutritional
profile, and offers a flavor pets favor.
Canidae
Organ meats have room in limited-ingredient diets,
too. Organs are a vital part of cats' and dogs' natural diets,
as they provide essential nutrients not found in muscle
meat. Organ meats have higher levels of B vitamins
and are also rich in minerals, such as phosphorus, iron,
copper, magnesium and iodine. They are also a good
source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
Ziwi USA, Overland Park, Kan., includes heart, liver,
lung, tripe and kidney in all its cat and dog foods, as
well as in its air-dried dog treats. Air drying is a natural
way to preserve meat that eliminates the need for artificial
preservatives, sugars or glycerins. The company's
slow, gentle, twin-stage air drying process crafts a food
that is as nutrient-dense and digestible as a completely
raw diet, but safe, clean to handle and can store for up
to 21 months. In keeping with a true, limited-ingredient
diet profile, Ziwi uses only organs from the same protein
source as the muscle meat in each recipe.
" Limited-ingredient foods certainly have their place
in the pet food space, as pet food is all about providing
choices to pet parents, " Kennedy said. " The pet food industry's
job is simply to provide complete-and-balanced
formulations, using Association of American Feed
Control Officials' approved ingredients, in many different
formats to meet the industry demand for increased
choices and a range of budgets. "
