Taking Palatability Beyond Taste

The palatability of pet food depends on many factors, ranging from the freshness of raw materials through the entire pet food manufacturing process including the application of a palatant. That’s why Kemin palatants are designed to go beyond taste. We not only understand the ingredients, but also the raw materials at the molecular level and are able to put scientific and technical resources directly to work for our customers.

PALASURANCE

The Kemin palatant portfolio begins with Palasurance, our flagship line of palatants for dog and cat foods. We designed these products to deliver the level of palatability that the industry, and pet food consumers, have come to expect.

As shown in Figure 1, diets made with Palasurance palatants were better than commercial benchmark diets on the retail shelf.

We also looked at how Palasurance products performed versus alternative commercial palatants. As shown in Figure 2, Palasurance cat palatants performed better than alternative standard and super premium palatants. In each of these tests, the palatant variables were compared at equal inclusion rates and application costs on the same cat kibble.
