Our pet food competence: Sustainable products made from wheat for pet food.

Wheat is one of the oldest cultivated plants on earth. Having originated about 7000 b.C., it has remained an important staple food in many countries on earth to this very day. Bread and baked goods are made from wheat flour that is high in nutrients. Like humans, animals also benefit from the wheat grain’s valuable ingredients. With its natural ingredients, wheat provides us with the foundation for sustainable wheat-based solutions that support the end consumer products of pet foodproducers in their functionality regarding texture, stability and nutrient density. In addition, it can also give the pet food the desired appearance. This is because each constituent part of the grain has its own properties and possible applications. The knowledge about the natural raw materials’ performance and the high development competence provide the foundation for efficient, wheat-based product concepts for the production of pet food in the Crespel & Deiters Group.

Trigea – Our pet food brand in the development of highly functional wheat-based products for the optimisation and production of pet food.

Trigea is the brand of the Crespel & Deiters Group for the development of highly functional wheat-based products for the production and optimisation of both wet and dry pet food. With our highly-functional wheat-based products, we support the animal feed industry in the production of natural feed for pets. For this, we utilise the large number of benefits offered by wheat as a provider of nutrients. Starches, vitamins, minerals, trace elements and fibre are rich and balanced in our products, thereby offering holistic, wheat-based solutions for optimising pet food. Trigea’s highly functional products ensure optimum texture and stability, in addition to increasing the naturalness and flavour of the pet food. Moreover, they can also give the end consumer products their desired appearance.

Everything about our work in the animal feed industry

High-quality wheat-based products for the production and improvement of pet food for the animal feed industry.

With high-quality, wheat-based products called Trigovit®, Trigea satisfies the growing demand for natural and sustainable pet food. The wheat-based solutions of Trigea give the end consumer product its desired functionality. Moreover, wheat is an excellent flavour carrier, as well as a valuable source of protein. As such, it offers additional nutritional value. This way, apart from functional aspects, wheat also adds more naturalness, nutrients and flavour to the feed.

Optimal texture for pet food:

With texturised wheat protein-products that are produced in a technologically sophisticated process, Trigea ensures an optimal texture of pet food. Trigovit® Tex can be produced in a variety of different forms and colours and can also be adapted to comply with individual requirements. Upon hydration, Trigovit® Tex gets its fibrous, meat-like texture and unique crunchiness. Trigovit® Tex is both odour- and tasteless. This makes it suitable for the use in innovative end consumer products and for attaining the desired appearance.

More naturalness in pet food, thanks to wheat | Crespel & Deiters

More naturalness in pet food:

Trigea uses the natural ingredients of wheat to develop products that increase the functionality of the pet food, create an additional nutrient supply and add more naturalness to the feed. The wheat starch Trigovit® Starch provides an excellent source of carbohydrates, thanks to its good digestibility. The wheat protein Trigovit® protein has a high nutritional value and, as a valuable source of protein, is an important ingredient in pet food. Our vital and hydrolysed products optimise the protein balance and, with their specific properties, offer an additional functional advantage.

Wheat as the ideal source of flavour for pet food | Crespel & Deiters

Optimised source of flavour when it comes to pet food:

As a general principle, the odour neutral and tasteless components of the wheat are extremely mild and gentle on the animals’ digestion. To improve the palatability of the pet food the Trigovit® Tex products already absorb the flavours and fragrances of the feed during the manufacturing process. This has a positive effect on the end consumer product’s flavour. Trigovit® Tex thus acts as a flavour and fragrance carrier.

Trigea’s wheat-based solutions help to maintain the functionality of the pet food over a long period of time. At the same time, it has a positive influence on the processability. The highly functional wheat-based products ensure a stable end consumer product that retains consistent quality even under fluctuating environmental influences such as temperature and ambient humidity.
