Moist pet foods

The raw materials used in moist pet foods are typically by-products of foods manufactured for human consumption. These by-products must be fit for human consumption, although they would not typically be used for this purpose. Ingredients used include meat processing byproducts, whole grain, ground cereals, flavourings and vitamin and mineral supplements. Pet foods are designed to be nutritionally balanced to meet the needs of a particular type of animal.

Semi-moist pet foods

The raw materials used in semi-moist pet foods are typically by-products of foods manufactured for human consumption. Ingredients commonly used include dry cereal sources, vitamin and mineral supplements and some meat slurries. The ingredients are blended, conditioned and extruded into small shaped pieces. The pieces are dried and fat or meat extracts may be sprayed onto the surface. This type of feed is often multi-component. After drying, various fractions manufactured in a similar way, are blended to produce the finished feed. The feed is then packaged.
