APPLICATIONS IN - DRY - WET - SEMIMOIST

Already finding many applications in human foods, pea protein, starch and fibre are great examples of ingredients that support the concept that if “it is good enough for me, then it is good enough for my pet.” On this basis alone, they make great raw materials for petfood. However, pea products offer many more advantages to the petfood industry and benefits for pet parents.

Super foods

Ideally, a food ingredient should be nutrient dense and deliver a range of nutrients and associated health benefits like “low” glycaemic index, source of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Pulses are very high in protein and fibre, and are significant source of iron, zinc, folate, thiamin, niacin, potassium and magnesium. They are low in fat and according research from Pulse Canada, consuming just 1/2cup a day, can reduce LDL-cholesterol levels which can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Clean Label

Sustainable

Transparent

FOOD SAFETY

Pet parents expect the same standards of petfood safety management as used to ensure food safety of the food they eat.
