Fat and palatability enhancers coating is a key step of the dry pet food manufacturing process. Diana Pet Food's experts in application compared the impact of 4 fat and powder palatant coating procedures on cat kibbles palatability performance using innovative physico-chemical analysis methods and sensorial evaluations.

Results demonstrated that with an atmospheric coating procedure, the increase of the topical fat level reduces the powder availability due to embedding. Nevertheless, the use of alternative coating procedures such as vacuum coating or differential cooling were shown to be a high potential lever to improve the palatability of cat diets with high topical fat levels.
