Palatants for Pet Food

For most pet owners, the proof of quality, flavorful petfood products is in watching our furry friends enjoy their food. When a new diet is introduced to a pet and it stimulates active consumption, it's considered palatable, and therefore a success.

Successfully achieving palatability in pet food requires balancing product formulation, ingredient stability and flavor profiles. Palatants, or palatability enhancers, play an important role in the overall appeal of a petfood product by elevating preferred tastes and aromas.

A Trusted Partner in Petfood Palatability

The palatability of a pet food is influenced by many factors such as the freshness of raw materials and how palatability enhancers are applied during the petfood manufacturing process. When creating a successful product, you need a trusted partner whose expertise includes ingredients, raw materials and an understanding of the behavioral differences and preferences of our end users - dogs and cats.

Drawing on technical capabilities around flavor, stabilization, pet food safety and quality, Kemin palatants are designed to meet unique customer needs. Our palatants provide taste equal to or better than competitive products. They’re also designed to ensure consistent quality and achieve label claims important to our customers. The PALASURANCE® line of palatants contributes to the overall consumption of dry petfood diets.

PALTEVA P Series Palatants offer a unique feature: plant-based palatability.  Designed using plant proteins and Maillard technology to generate meaty aromas, P Series palatants can be used for vegetarian, limited ingredient and conventional diets alike.
