Pet Food

Tail waggingly good

Pet food makers the world over are barking for solutions for better texture and substance for their canned, semi-moist, and dry pet foods.  Keeping food moist, creating thick, delicious gravy and keeping food safe and stable are just a few of the solutions Ashland can offer.   Although the Ashland team is on two legs instead of four, they are dedicated to find solutions for pets and people alike.  Ashland solutions are purringly and tail waggingly good.

Pet food industry trends closely follow global food trends driving pet food manufacturers to look for texture, stabilization, water-binding and thickening solutions. Ashland’s cellulose and guar gums offer solutions for canned, dry, and semi-moist pet foods.

Cellulose gum is a good thickener for the liquids associated with all-meat canned products or where gravy is used. Its ability to control water helps with the finished product appeal and during processing to help facilitate the conveying and filling operations.

The high water-holding capacity of cellulose gum makes it a useful additive for moisture retention in soft, moist products. This is particularly true with soft, moist cat foods, in which the product should not dry out after removal from the package.
