Stability of essential nutrients in pet food manufacturing and storage

  title={Stability of essential nutrients in pet food manufacturing and storage},
  author={Alaina J. Mooney},
Processing pet food can be beneficial, but can also have adverse effects on shelf-life and nutrient survival. Most affected are supplemental vitamins and essential fatty acids (EFA). Pet food complicates this relative to human foods by combining all elements into the product before processing and requiring an extensive shelf-life (up to 2 years). The objective of this research was to determine the effects of processing, diet, and storage conditions on vitamin (vitamin A, vitamin D3, vitamin E… 
The Effect of Processing and Ingredient Interactions on Thiamine Degradation in Canned Cat Food: A Modern Nutrition-Health Dilemma
Water soluble vitamins play an integral role in normal metabolic function in cats. Thiamine deficiencies are a common issue in the pet food industry because thiamine degrades easily during
Effects of Choline Chloride, Copper Sulfate and Zinc Oxide on Long-Term Stabilization of Microencapsulated Vitamins in Premixes for Weanling Piglets
It is concluded that current microencapsulation techniques for vitaminPremixes appear to be inadequate to guarantee VA, VK3, and VB1 concentrations in VTM premixes.


Encapsulation of Vitamin A palmitate for animal supplementation: Formulation, manufacturing and stability implications.
This formulation design showed the best performance in terms of VAP recovery (t(50%) > 360 days) after 1 year of storage at room conditions, considering the poor shelf-life (45 days) of pure VAP stabilized with BHT stored at the same conditions.
Food fortification to reduce vitamin A deficiency: International Vitamin A Consultative Group recommendations.
The biological efficacy, but not the effectiveness, of fortifying oil and hydrogenated oil products as well as cereal flours and meals with vitamin A has been shown.
Effects of dietary n-6 and n-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on the immune response of healthy geriatric dogs.
An optimum amount of dietary alpha-tocopheryl acetate concentration, regardless of the dietary n-6 to n-3 fatty acid ratio, stimulates the CD8+ T cell population.
The Determination of n-3 Fatty Acid Levels in Food Products Containing Microencapsulated Fish Oil Using the One-Step Extraction Method. Part 1: Measurement in the Raw Ingredient and in Dry Powdered Foods
An optimized one-step extraction and methylation method (OSE) for the determination of n-3 fatty acid levels in microencapsulated fish oil products has been described. Validation of the method for
Essential fatty acids supplementation in different-stage atopic dogs fed on a controlled diet.
Evaluated the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) supplementation in different-stages atopic dogs fed on a controlled diet and early stages cases seem to be more responsive to EFA supplementation.
Extrusion conditions affect chemical composition and in vitro digestion of select food ingredients.
The data suggest that the effects of extrusion conditions on ingredient composition and digestion are influenced by the unique chemical characteristics of individual substrates.
Safety assessment of DHA-rich microalgae from Schizochytrium sp.
Administration of DRM did not produce any treatment-related adverse effects in Sprague-Dawley rats of relevance to humans at dosages up to 4000 mg/kg/day for 13 weeks and a slight increase in the incidence, but not severity, of cardiomyopathy was observed.
The effects of n-3 fatty acid deficiency and repletion upon the fatty acid composition and function of the brain and retina.
The interrelationships between the chemistry of neural and retinal membranes as affected by diet and their biological functioning provides an exciting prospect for future investigations.
Effects of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acid supplementation in early renal insufficiency in dogs.
Early in renal insufficiency, before significant kidney damage, group FO had a lower serum cholesterol concentration and tended to have a lower urinary prostaglandin E2 and thromboxane A2 excretion than group C, while group SO had a higher mean glomerular capillary pressure and more glomersular enlargement, which could explain the beneficial effects of omega-3 PUFAs and the detrimental effects when administered on a long-term basis.
Safety evaluation of DHA-rich Algal Oil from Schizochytrium sp.
There were no treatment-related effects of DHA-rich Algal Oil on clinical observations, body weight, food consumption, behavior, hematology, clinical chemistry, coagulation, or urinalysis, and the no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL) was 5 wt% in the diet.
