Pet food palatants help satisfy the taste
and nutrition needs of dogs and cats.
By Keith Loria | petfoodprocessing@sosland.com
Pet food manufacturers understand that appealing to a pet's
natural taste instinct is one of the main keys to creating an
enjoyable eating experience - which is why palatants, or
flavor enhancers, are applied to pet foods to improve their
inherent palatability and increase pet acceptability.
Today, there are a wide variety of palatants available
for pet food and treat formulations designed to help satisfy
the pet both through taste and nutrition. However,
palatants are designed with specific food formats in mind
- a palatant designed for wet cat food will function differently
than one designed for a cat kibble or treat.
What's trending in palatability mirrors what's trending
in food, according to industry experts. For example,
sustainable sourcing has become more prevalent
in recent years. Non-meat options are also a big topic
of discussion; they perform just as well as meat-based
palatants but can be more sustainable and used across
multiple chassis.
Supply assurance is a big theme among manufacturers
as well. Ingredients that are difficult to source - such
as unique animal proteins - have become less favored
since the pandemic.
Not only do palatants
for cat and dog foods
differ, but a palatant
designed for wet food
will function differently
than one intended for
a kibble or treat.
