INGREDIENTS
acids are used to target specific applications ranging
from healthy heart to joints both in humans and pets, "
said Chris Klaska, product group manager of fats and
oils for ingredient supplier Scoular, Omaha, Neb. " More
people are recognizing pets as family members and
the growing number of nutrition-conscious humans
want their pets to have a long
and rich life. "
A variety of fish oils have
been highlighted in new pet
food products. Tiki Cats, owned
by Whitebridge Pet Brands, St.
Louis, has targeted skin and
coat health in its new line of
wet cat foods. Oils and fats are
an important element in the
company's Special Skin & Coat
formula, which includes salmon
and tuna oils to deliver Omega 3
fatty acids that aid in both skin
and coat health. The formula
Oils derived from
fish as ingredients
in pet food or
as stand-alone
products added to
pet foods and treats
are popular with pet
owners to support
skin and coat health.
Hofseth BioCare/Tiki Pets
also includes zinc and vitamin B, as well as coconut oil.
Fish oil is being advertised for other health benefits
beyond the skin and coat as well. Stella & Chewy's wet
food line for small breeds - Lil' Bites Savory Stews -
includes turmeric, taurine, sunflower and salmon oil to
provide anti-inflammatory and heart health benefits.
Salmon oil on its own is a product that has been released
recently as a supplement outside of a pet food formula.
One example, Chicago-based Hofseth BioCare's
Brilliant Salmon Oil, has been rolled out in the United
States and Canada for sale in the independent pet specialty
channel. The product is a pet supplement
with functional benefits, such as skin, coat and
paw pad health, as well as increased energy and
appetite. Other sources of fish oil are growing in
popularity as well.
" We have seen a greater interest in wild
Alaskan pollock oil both in pet food and human
consumption, " Klaska noted. " The Alaskan
pollock fishery is the largest certified sustainable
fishery in the world. It is a very clean and
easy-to-work-with oil due to the minimal stearin
and low melting point. It has a very similar nutritional
profile and appearance to wild Alaskan
salmon oil and is more abundant in supply, and
Coconut oil's
popularity has
given it a place on
the front of many
pet food and treat
packages.
Dogswell
more competitive in pricing. "
Superfood status
A few non-animal-based oils have also achieved superfood
status as ingredients able to provide important
benefits to pets. Coconut oil is one such product. In addition
to being used in Tiki Cats' Special Skin and Coat

formula, Dogswell, also a Whitebridge Pet Brands company,
includes coconut oil in its line of health focused
jerky for dogs. Coconut oil and peppermint oil are contributing
to pet oral health in products such as Brushy
Sticks dog treats from Bocce's Bakery where these oils
help freshen breath naturally.
" As humanization of pets continues to play a large
role in pet parent purchasing choices, we do see some
ingredients that are more common in the human industry
gaining popularity, such as coconut oil and olive
oil, " said Natalie Asaro, nutrition manager at Petcurean,
British Columbia, Canada.
Additives and coatings are an increasingly popular
way for pet owners to supplement their pets' diets, and
oils have seen success in this area as a viable way to control
pet health and improve pet owners' relationships
with their companions.
" Wet and dry coatings supply nutrients and build favorable
relationships between an owner and their pets as
they show appreciation for the food choices, " said Dave
Carney, area sales manager, Bühler Aeroglide, Cary, N.C.
" Maintaining the
quality of oils as an
ingredient means
fighting oxidation. "
Chris Klaska, Scoular
Fats and oils that flavor the kibble with beneficial antioxidants
are typically in liquid form, which can serve
as a bonding agent for dry materials. Muenster Milling
Company, a manufacturer of pet food and other animal
feeds, offers a My Customer Dog Food™ service that allows
autoship clients to customize their dry dog food orders
with a range of coatings including bacon fat, salmon
oil, coconut oil and freeze-dried proteins for added
health benefits and the pet's overall enjoyment.
Oil innovations
Alternatives to traditional oils are continually being evaluated
for use in the pet food industry. Hemp products are
as much of a rising trend in pet food as they are in the human
world and approval of hemp-derived ingredients for
use in animal food has been a hot topic lately.
The Association for American Feed Control
Officials (AAFCO) looks to the industry to initiate ingredient
evaluations through an ingredient definition
submission process. Erin Bubb, president of AAFCO,
reported a recent submission was provided for hemp
seed meal in layer feed. She added, " There still seems
