Microalgae are microscopic organisms that present unique opportunities as a functional ingredient in pet food applications. The most important property of certain species of microalgae is their high content of essential long-chain omega-3 fatty acid, which has benefits for the health and well-being of humans as well as cats and dogs. In particular, microalgae grown under controlled conditions through heterotrophic fermentation offer a fully traceable, sustainable, clean and high-quality source of DHA long-chain omega-3 fatty acid – with a higher concentration of these omega3s and lower levels of heavy metals and other contaminants compared to salmon oil or fish oil.

In the latest white paper by Geert van der Velden, IQI Trusted Petfood Ingredients’ Innovation Manager, he explains the unique benefits of microalgae for pet food applications.
