Discrimination of dog palatant solutions using human olfactory receptors platform

Achems Annual Meeting | April 17th - 20th 2018

A strong relationship has been observed between food choice and the sense of olfaction in dogs. Some aroma analysis methodologies can detect most of the volatile compounds present in a pet food. However, they do not allow to determine which are the molecules actually perceived by the dog and how they impact their preferences. 

Dr Marion Guilloux, Dog palatability Research Project Manager @Diana Pet Food, will present a poster showing how the use of human olfactory receptors as sensors can help characterize and discriminate dog palatants
