Chicken meat powder

Chicken is the most common animal protein source in pet food for a number of good reasons. First of all, it is abundantly available globally and a relatively trouble-free animal species in terms of export health certifications and religious sensitivity. Animal welfare initiatives with regard to chicken, such as slow-growing breeds and increased outdoor access, are adopted globally. Chicken’s carbon footprint is relatively small while by-products, such as chicken meal, chicken MDM, and chicken plasma, have an excellent nutritional profile or functional properties. 

 Chicken meat powder (CMP) is by no means comparable to chicken meal due to the differences in raw materials and processing techniques. The chicken carcasses used as the raw material do not contain any grains – guaranteeing a gluten-free final product. By removing the bones and fat, CMP is turned into a low-calorie ingredient that contains at least 75% crude protein. It is low in fat, ash, and calcium but full of essential electrolytes. Low temperature spray drying is used to increase shelf life and to conserve the valuable benefits and bioactivities of the protein and amino acid structures.
