Egg powder / pellets

Egg is a nutritionally well-balanced nutrient for humans as well as pets. Pure whole egg powder is well recognized by the pet food industry as an excellent source of high-quality, nutritional, functional, and palatable ingredients. It is rich in high-quality and functional protein as well as highly bio-available essential dietary nutrients, offering both nutritional value and health benefits for cats and dogs. Pure whole egg powder has a relatively low carbon footprint, offering interesting sustainable as well as vegetarian solutions for pet food products. 

Pure whole egg powder is produced from by-products of the egg and poultry production industry. The eggs are filtered and gently spray dried to preserve the chemical integrity of essential nutrients. The resulting pure whole egg powder is rich in protein, essential amino acids, fatty acids, powerful antioxidants, and vitamins to help meet the nutritional requirements of cats and dogs. The powder has applications in both wet and dry pet food and can be pelleted for improved handling at the pet food producer. Its functional properties include excellent gel formation, water-binding, and emulsifying properties.
