Mackerel meal

Mackerel is available in various sub-varieties in Europe and South America. Like herring, it is a well-known species for human consumption, making it an ideal claim ingredient in European and North American pet foods. Similar to herring, the species contains substantial amounts of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which not only contribute to healthy joints and overall mobility, but also support a healthy skin and coat in cats and dogs.

IQI's mackerel meal is a continuously available, single-species protein meal for pet food applications. Mackerel meal is a source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and is also loaded with essential nutrients, such as vitamin B12, vitamin D, and amino acids. Its high levels of oil, which is rich in omega-3, also benefit pet’s coat and skin health. The final product is stabilized with a natural anti-oxidant to increase shelf-life.
