DES MOINES, Iowa, May 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kemin Nutrisurance, the pet food and rendering technologies division of Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to touch 3.8 billion people every day with its products and services, recently expanded its innovative product range, which addresses freshness, food safety, palatability and now, health and nutrition.
The new segment serves consumers' growing demand for nutrition with health benefits for their pets. Today, 66 percent of pet owners believe that the right food can enhance their pets' quality of life1.
Kemin currently offers a variety of protein products that contribute to the nutritional content of pet food, pet treats and other consumable pet products. Establishing a health and nutrition program reinforces Kemin's commitment to the health of all pets and focuses its strength in nutrition beyond functional proteins to include unique and sustainable solutions.
"At Kemin, we understand the needs of the pet food industry, including pet owners, who see their companion animals as family members. More than ever, they're looking for foods and treats that offer their pets quality nutrition comparable to what they eat themselves," said David Raveyre, President, Kemin Nutrisurance. "We've been offering products to enhance the health and nutrition of pet food for some time. We're excited to focus even more on the growing need for quality nutrition that pet owners, pet food manufacturers, renders and ingredient suppliers are seeking."
The new health and nutrition segment will feature the PROSURANCE™ line of spray-dried protein products that provide high-quality protein for companion animal diets. For pets with digestive sensitivities, the PROSURANCE.HD line of protein hydrolysates offers an additional source of significant low molecular weight protein. A small molecular weight profile may support healthy intestinal and digestive systems which may, in turn, support healthy skin and coat. In Europe, the segment will also include PRALISUR™, which contains one of the highest concentrations of linear 1,3-ß-glucan, a glucose polysaccharide naturally occurring in the cells of plants, cereals and fungi, that has been shown to stimulate and activate the immune systems of dogs.2
