Our scientists and ingredient specialists leverage their expertise in the hydrolysis process to formulate our PROSURANCE line of high-quality, spray-dried products and low molecular weight products that are used throughout the petfood industry.
Petfood manufacturers are continually exploring ways to add high-quality nutritional content to petfood. Spray-dried products are commonly used in petfood product formulations to deliver protein and palatability to pet food, pet treats and other consumable pet products.
Kemin is a leading provider of spray-dried products, with offerings that provide high quality proteins and palatability support. Our scientists and ingredient specialists leverage their expertise in the hydrolysis process to formulate high-quality, spray-dried products and low molecular weight products that are used throughout the petfood industry.
The PROSURANCE spray-dried formulas are derived from protein and fat sourced category three animal by-products, so the result is a high-quality product that can be used for a variety of pet diets.
Pet foods come in a variety of flavours and aromas to meet the preferences and eating habits of cats and dogs. Our portfolio features products that utilise quality ingredients to provide protein content and palatability.
Today, concerned pet owners are choosing to address the digestive sensitivities of their pets with specialty hypoallergenic petfood diets. This has prompted petfood manufacturers to incorporate ingredients that are efficacious and also make for easily-digestible petfood while enhancing palatability. Atop this list of petfood ingredients are low molecular weight products, which can be used in specialty petfood diets or in diets that contain novel sources of protein—such as duck, peas, potato, rabbit, salmon or whitefish.
How do we produce low molecular weight products and why are they valuable?
Low molecular weight products are produced through a process known as hydrolysis. This occurs when high molecular weight protein starting material gets broken down into smaller molecular weight components.
Kemin invested in a state-of-the-art palatant production and spray-drying facility that is equipped to manufacture customer-specific spray-dried products. Kemin combines hydrolysis and spray-drying expertise with a commitment to excellence, innovation and customer service to partner in the identification of nutritional and palatability solutions. As a part of our commitment to quality, our European production facilities are ISO 9001:2008 certified.
The Kemin Technical Service and Customer Laboratory Service (CLS) teams are your protein and palatability partners throughout the entire petfood manufacturing process. Our experienced team of scientists and ingredient specialists is ready to provide technical advice, vendor assurance and laboratory testing to meet your specifications and provide high quality protein for your petfood diets.
