Wheat proteins as a valuable source of nutrients in pet food.

High-quality, wheat-based raw materials can significantly increase pet food’s functionality in animal feed, in addition to creating added value for animals in terms of nutritional physiology. With our highly functional, wheat-based products, we support the pet food industry in the production of balanced animal feed for healthy feeding of animals. At the same time, wheat offers us everything we need for an optimal supply of nutrients in the feed. Especially our wheat proteins – whether in the form of vital wheat protein, textured wheat protein or hydrolysed wheat protein – are ideally suited as a valuable source of protein and a natural ingredient for pet food.

Wheat proteins Trigovit® Protein in animal feed:

Trigovit® Protein (vital wheat protein)

Thanks to particularly gentle drying, the vital wheat protein retains its full vitality and has distinct agglomeration and water-binding properties. The visco-elastic properties of Trigovit® Proteins are created by absorbing water. These are unique among animal and vegetable protein sources. This product is used as a protein component in a variety of different animal feed applications.

Properties of wheat proteins (vital):

  • Full vitality, thanks to particularly gentle drying
  • High water-binding capacity, thanks to the formation of stable agglomerates
  • Increases the nutritional value of the end-consumer product as a natural and sustainable protein source
  • Unique structure formation, thanks to its visco-elastic properties
  • Valuable amino acids that are contained ensure a high nutrient value

Application areas of wheat proteins (vital):

  • Increase of various feed applications’ protein value
  • For producing emulsions
  • For the production of dry feed, wet feed and snacks
  • Ornamental fish food

Trigovit® Protein (hydrolysed wheat protein)

Thanks to its amino acids, the wheat protein has a high nutrient value and, as a valuable source of protein, it is an important ingredient in pet food. Moreover, our hydrolysed wheat protein is gently dried and enzymatically hydrolysed. This way, we prevent damage caused by heat. Its technical properties are different to those of vital wheat protein, thereby making it suitable for other applications.

Properties of hydrolysed wheat proteins:

  • Highly-soluble protein source which can easily be incorporated into applications
  • Stirred into water, the hydrolysed protein develops a homogeneous solution
  • Broken down proteins provide high nutritional value

Application areas of hydrolysed wheat proteins:

  • Ornamental fish food
  • Baked snacks
  • In milk substitute products for puppies and kittens
  • As a soluble protein source in pastes, dry kibbles, wet feed applications, and snacks
