Natural pet food ingredients for improved processing.

Our functional, non-GMO pet food ingredients offer a wide range of physiological and technical benefits, and help to create balanced, safe pet food that lives up to the highest standards. They can improve and fine tune the physical features and texture of pet food and snacks.

They can also optimise taste and colour, as well as energy consumption of the extruder.  As an ingredient supplier, we keep a close eye on the market trends to stay top of shelf.  For example our rice starches are a natural alternative to modified starches and hydrocolloids, therefore matching the increased demand for clean label solutions.

Also discover our nutritional benefits for pet food: improved digestive health, gut development and good coat condition, highly digestible rice ingredients and many others.
