INGREDIENTS
to be a lot of interest in hemp seed oil and
hemp seed meal for other animal species,
so we are hoping to see some more ingredient
submissions in the near future. "
Although official approval for the use
of hemp-derived ingredients in pet food is
yet to be determined, a new source of oils
received a ruling recently. AAFCO has approved
marine micro-algae, an ingredient
rich in Omega 3 fatty acids that has been
shown to help support the health of aging
dogs. The new ingredient offers a sustainable
and cost-effective alternative to fish oil and
Omega 3s are used
to target specific
applications ranging
from healthy heart
to joints both in
humans and pets.

may support brain function in older dogs in addition to
providing other nutrients important for maintaining the
health of senior pets.
The fish oil-alternative algae ingredient is considered
sustainable because it has a low carbon footprint and reduces
the need for global wild fish populations for pet
food. It offers approximately twice as much Omega 3
DHA than fish oil products, is grown in fermentation
tanks with GMO-free cane sugar, and the entire process
is powered by renewable energy.
" As a dedicated supplier of long chain Omega 3 fatty
acids to the pet food industry, we are excited about the
possibilities and sustainable aspects of algae DHA coming
from AlgaPrime DHA, " said Geert van der Velden,
innovation manager at IQI Trusted Petfood Ingredients,
Amersfoort, Netherlands.
Corbion, Lenexa, Kan., has been producing Omega
3 feed ingredients commercially since 2016, and is now
looking to offer clean, sustainable sources of the fatty acids
for pet food manufacturers.
Delft, Netherlands-based Veramaris, a joint venture
of DSM and Evonik, has also added its name to the list

" One of the challenges
with including fats and
oils in wet pet foods
is ensuring that the
final formulation is
not too high in fat. "

of pet food ingredient suppliers offering a fish oil alternative
derived from natural marine micro-algae.
Industry best practices
Maintaining the integrity and health benefits of oils and
fats in pet food requires following industry best practices
in selecting, storing and processing.
Care is put into the integrity and source of these oils.
Hofseth manufactures its salmon oil in Norway using
Norwegian Atlantic salmon and a patented extraction
process. It is a single-ingredient product and does not
contain any additives. The simplicity of oils is important
in keeping the labels of healthy foods direct and understandable
by pet parents.
Rick Cummisford, director
of
quality
control,
Columbus Vegetable Oils, Des Plaines, Ill., spoke to his
company's clean-label oils, saying, " Our oils are simple,
usually only one ingredient or perhaps a few if a blend is
needed for the formula. This simple approach helps keep
product labels clean. "
Maintaining the quality of oils as an ingredient means
fighting oxidation, according to Klaska. Some higherend
oils are prone to oxidation, so formulators claiming
no preservatives often include natural antioxidants in
the pet food, such as rosemary extract.
" When storing or processing fats and oils, you want to
limit the oxidation, " Klaska explained. " Oxygen, UV light
and high temperatures will increase the rate of oxidation,
which negatively affects the fat or oil's odor, flavor and
shelf life, and could affect the palatability for pets. "
When including oils and fats in pet food formulas,
balance is also an important challenge for delivering
healthy products.
" One of the challenges with including fats and oils in
wet pet foods is ensuring that the final formulation is not
too high in fat, " noted Asaro. " Wet pet foods often contain
large amounts of fresh meat, which contributes both protein
and fat to the recipe. When formulating a wet food,
the goal is to create a complete-and-balanced recipe that
provides all the essential fatty acids in adequate amounts,
while keeping the fat level controlled. "
