Spray-Dried Protein and Protein Hydrolysates for Pet Food

Spray-dried protein and protein hydrolysate ingredients are common in formulations used within the petfood industry. Spray-dried protein sources contribute to the flavor profile and nutritional content of dog and cat food, treats and other consumable pet products.

Pet owners are increasingly looking to address pet digestive sensitivities with hypoallergenic petfood diets. As a result, petfood manufacturers are incorporating ingredients that are effective and easily digestible. Protein hydrolysates may be used in specialty diets or in diets containing novel sources of proteins—such as salmon, rabbit, duck, potato, whitefish or peas.

Hydrolysis occurs when high molecular weight protein starting material is broken down into smaller molecular weight components, either by enzyme or acid hydrolysis. The smaller protein molecular weight (MW) profile may support a healthy intestinal and digestive system. Supporting a healthy digestive system may also support skin and coat.

PROSURANCE.HD - Protein Hydrolysates

At Kemin, we use our expertise in the hydrolysis process to formulate our PROSURANCE.HD line of high quality, spray-dried protein hydrolysates. The PROSURANCE.HD product line was designed for use in petfood formulations as an additional source of significant low molecular weight protein.

Kemin’s chicken liver hydrolysate, PROSURANCE CHX Liver.HD, can be used in petfood formulations to provide the benefits of protein in a smaller, easily digestible molecular size.
