Impact of the composition in macronutrient and palatants on wet pet food intake in domestic cats
Nordic Pet Food Seminar | Wednesday, 9 October 2019, 2:05-2:40 PM
Belonging to obligate carnivores, cats need high protein diets. Moreover, several studies showed that cats overshoot protein and fat over carbohydrates. However, as a result of domestication and for technical and economical reasons, the majority of commercial wet cat foods include carbohydrates.
Dr Hassan Safa, Cat R&D Project Manager for Diana Pet Food, will present how the levels of protein, fat and carbohydrate impact wet cat food intake. He will also demonstrate that palatability enhancers can increase the consumption level of carbohydrate-rich wet foods.
