Extruded pregelatinised flours Trigovit® Flour in pet food.

Trigovit® Flour by Trigea is suited as a wheat-based pregelatinised flour for various applications in animal feed. They are especially good for making snacks. In terms of process and product optimisation, our Trigovit® Flour pregelatinised flours have an optimising effect in the following applications. Both the viscosity in production and the texture of the end-consumer product can be adjusted with the pregelatinised flours.

Trigovit® Flour – improved functionality of the pet food through extruded pregelatinised wheat flours.

The special feature of Trigovit® Flour’s pregelatinised flour is found in the thermal treatment by extrusion. Thanks to the manufacturing process, they already develop their binding properties in cold processes. In terms of process and product optimisation, our extruded Trigovit® Flour pregelatinised wheat flours have an optimising effect in the applications, because Trigovit® Flour gives the end-consumer product its desired functionality. Especially snacks like chewing sticks for dogs or the production of flake food for ornamental fish can be optimised with Trigovit® Flour product solutions.

Essential properties of extruded pregelatinised wheat starch:

  • Good dispersibility in water
  • Very good water absorption (up to 1:6)
  • Very good fat binding (up to 1:2)
  • Binder and carrier, e.g. of fat-containing products
  • Cold-swelling
  • High binding capacity
  • Stabilises and solidifies doughs and emulsions

Exemplary areas of application for pregelatinised wheat flours:

  • Binding agent for cold-pressed dry food
  • Puppy and kitten milk
  • Semi-moist snacks
  • Moist food chunks
  • Chew bones
  • In-process viscosity adjustment
  • Optimises machine runability while increasing production efficiency

Possible applications of the Trigovit® Flour pregelatinised flours:

Trigovit® Flour is suited as a wheat-based pregelatinised flour for various applications in animal feed. They are especially good for making snacks. In terms of process and product optimisation, our Trigovit® Flour pregelatinised flours have an optimising effect in the following applications. Both the viscosity in production and the texture of the end-consumer product can be adjusted with the flours.

Application of pregelatinised flours in snacks for semi-moist snack, extruded chewing bones and moist feed chunks:

  • Very good solubility and stir-in properties
  • High binding capacity (even binds difficult raw materials such as spirulina or glycerine)
  • Prolongs the freshness of chewing products
  • Gives chewing products the desired flexibility and pliability
  • Stabilises and solidifies doughs and emulsions
  • Very good water absorption (up to 1:6)
  • Very good fat binding (up to 1:2)
  • Binder and carrier, for example of fat-containing products

Application of pregelatinised flours in dry feed:

With wheat-based products by the producer Trigea, high-quality nutrients are added to dry feed, thereby providing balanced animal feed | Crespel & Deiters
  • Trigovit® Flour is an easily digestible carbohydrate source due to its broken down starch
  • Binding agent for cold-pressed dried feed

Application of pregelatinised flours in puppies and kitten milk:

For the healthy development of young animals, the composition of nutrients for puppy and kitten milk, adapted to the needs of the animals, is crucial. Trigovit® Flour is an easily digestible, vegetable carbohydrate source for young animals.

  • Easily digestible carbohydrate source
  • Quickly available energy due to broken down starch
  • Optimal solubility to prevent lump formation
  • Very good water absorption (1:6)
  • Ideal as a binder and carrier

Application of pregelatinised flours in ornamental feed:

The choice of the right raw materials is also crucial when producing flake feed for ornamental fish. Both the viscosity in production and the texture of the end-consumer product can be adjusted with the flours.

  • Optimisation of machine runability
  • Increase production efficiency
  • Improvement of viscosity and texture
