DES MOINES, Iowa, June 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kemin Nutrisurance, the pet food and rendering technologies business unit of Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80 percent of the world's population, has launched PALTEVA™, a line of natural flavor enhancers for dog food.
Pet owners are following the trend of their own diets and are increasingly interested in natural and clean-label pet foods. North American and European pet food launches with a natural claim are growing—the Compound Annual Growth Rate from 2013 to 2018 was at least 20 percent in both regions.1
To help manufacturers meet the increased demand for natural pet food, Kemin's new PALTEVA palatants provide super-premium flavor with formulations containing only natural ingredients and preservatives.
"Most palatants are protected from microbial contamination with synthetic preservatives," said Abby Castillo, Global Palatants Product Manager, Kemin Nutrisurance. "Without natural alternatives, some natural palatants aren't protected at all. This inhibits their performance before the pet food product even reaches customers. The PALTEVA line is different; it provides natural flavor with natural microbial protection."
PALTEVA natural palatants join Kemin's existing portfolio of natural products that support the pet food and rendering industries, including antioxidants, palatants and food safety and health and nutrition products.
Kemin's team of scientists and application equipment engineers partner with customers throughout the pet food manufacturing process to provide technical advice, vendor assurance and lab testing. To learn more about PALTEVA natural palatants, visit www.kemin.com/palteva.
