Salmon hydrolyzate

Pure salmon is an important source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients that offer health benefits to cats and dogs. Salmon can be included in pet food as different kinds of ingredient, such as dried salmon, salmon meal, salmon hydrolyzate, or salmon oil. All of these ingredients are made from pure and fresh-farmed Chilean salmon that adheres to the highest international sustainability and quality standards. IQI salmon products are available both MarinTrust and ASC certified, the latter being subject to availability.

Salmon hydrolyzate, made from side streams of pure Chilean salmon, is one of the most recent applications of salmon in pet food. The fresh salmon products are processed via hydrolyzation into a beige, fine powder rich in protein and other essential nutrients that can be applied to pet food directly. Salmon hydrolyzate is available with a minimal protein level of 72% and has a very high digestibility of 99%. It can be applied to pet food formulas that require a high digestibility or a high protein and low ash content, or used in specific treats that require a fine powder. Moreover, as the protein is enzymatically hydrolyzed, it meets hypoallergenic food requirements.
