As a trusted pet food antioxidant supplier and ingredient manufacturer, Kemin continues to develop and deliver innovative, natural* antioxidant formulas designed to prolong the shelf life of petfood and meet the evolving expectations pet owners have for their companion animals. In addition to our line of natural antioxidant products, Kemin offers a wide range of synthetic antioxidant formulations that are specially designed to provide maximum protection from oxidation.

Food Safety

Food safety is the most pressing issue in the petfood industry, and Kemin is raising the bar in the food safety scenario by delivering innovative solutions designed to preserve and extend the shelf life of pet food and pet treats. Kemin is proud to partner with petfood manufacturers in managing microbial risk and assuring the highest, safest level of preservation. At Kemin, we take pet food safety very seriously.


The true test of a palatant is whether our companion animals enjoy eating their pet food. A pet food bowl left full is a strong indication that the food was manufactured with low quality palatants. Kemin has developed a full slate of flavour enhancers for pet food products—all of which are made from the highest quality ingredients. Kemin palatants deliver superior flavour and consistent performance to assure cat and dog food consumption.


Protein is a vital component of any petfood diet. Kemin offers the petfood industry’s most diverse selection of spray-dried proteins, including a variety of protein hydrolysates. Protein hydrolysates from Kemin are easily digested, making them ideal for inclusion in pet food diets specially formulated for food sensitivities.
