Herring meal is a single-species fish meal commonly used in pet food, especially in high-quality or premium pet food formulations. It is made by grinding and drying herring to form a concentrated and protein-rich meal. Typically, pet food producers like to use herring meal because the protein content is around 70%. The ash level is relatively low, making it a very suitable ingredient for high-protein (cat) diets. The final product is stabilized with a natural anti-oxidant for a longer shelf life. Natural antioxidants are strongly preferred over synthetic antioxidants by the pet food industry.
