Yeast palatants for companion animals

Palatants for companion animals are substances or ingredients incorporated into pet foods to enhance their taste and palatability. These ingredients are essential for enticing dogs, cats, and other pets encouraging them to eat their food, and ensuring they receive the necessary nutrients for their well-being.

Palatants are typically added to commercial pet foods, including both dry kibble and wet canned varieties.

Yeast products have been extensively demonstrated to enhance the appeal of pet foods, treats, and supplements, making them more enticing for consumption. They offer essential flavor elements that optimize the palatability of formulations while contributing to overall nutrition.

Certain yeast varieties have the ability to provide umami flavors and enhance the perception of mouthfeel in pet foods.

Furthermore, yeast products serve as effective ingredients in achieving flavor masking goals, reducing the reliance on sodium and fat as flavor enhancers to overcome undesirable notes.
