DES MOINES, Iowa, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kemin Nutrisurance, the Pet Food and Rendering Technologies division of Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to touch 3.8 billion people every day with its products and services, recently launched PALASURANCE® P Series, a plant-based solution for palatability, in North America and Asia Pacific. The new product line, an extension of the flagship brand for all types of pet food, addresses the increased popularity of limited-ingredient pet food diets associated with consumer demand for clean ingredient labels on pet food products.
In the pet food industry, limited-ingredient diets contain a simple list of ingredients, including a single source of animal protein. These diets can present challenges to pet food manufacturers in palatant application. Abby Castillo, Global Palatant Product Manager, Kemin Nutrisurance, explains: "Pet food manufacturers must meet certain requirements for limited-ingredient diets. In order to support claims of a single source of animal protein, pet food manufacturers must apply a palatant specific to that unique protein diet. For example, a lamb-based diet requires a lamb-based palatant. PALASURANCE P Series palatants were designed to provide a plant-based solution that is compatible with all animal proteins while maintaining excellent palatability performance. Analysis of our P Series palatants also proves that meaty flavors and aromas can be generated, even without meat ingredients."
Kemin uses sophisticated gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) technology to measure and identify palatability drivers at the molecular level in complex pet food and palatant formulations. GC/MS technology leads the Nutrisurance division to flavor discovery that informs its formulation experts in the creation of new palatants, such as the P Series.
"We are proud of the high-quality palatant enhancers we create, and believe that they reflect our technical expertise and commitment to the industry. Our goal is to provide pet treat and food manufacturers with effective and innovative solutions that help them meet performance and label requirements. The PALASURANCE P Series launch is consistent with this objective," said David Raveyre, President, Kemin Nutrisurance.
To support customer application of pet food palatability products, Kemin Nutrisurance offers Technical Support, Customer Laboratory Services and Product Application expertise for additional customer assurance.
