Creating Great Pet Treat Flavors
Don’t our furry friends deserve a treat, too? Many people don’t think about the fact that creating flavors for pet food, as well as pet treats, requires just as much careful thought and planning as creating food products for human buyers. Of course our dogs, cats and other furry (and even feathery) friends care as much about the flavor of what they’re eating as we do, which is why it’s important for any flavorist working on pet food products to pay special attention to the way they are formulating the flavors for their products.
Of course, the most notable thing about pet food flavors is that they are much stronger than the flavors created for people. Our furry friends, on the whole, tend to be drawn to pet treats with a more pungent flavor, as well as products that have a strong savory component. Advanced Biotech’s Natural Savory Complex can be a great way of adding this pungent, savory flavor to a pet treat, such as a biscuit or chew.
Another thing to keep in mind is that while many pets love flavors such as cheese or peanut butter, they may not always be the best foods for them. This can be because of natural dietary differences between animals and humans, as well as the need to vastly reduce calorie count and fat content in pet treats in order to keep them healthy. Cheesy flavors can easily be added to a product through the use of Advanced Biotech’s Natural Iso Butyraldehyde, while a flavor such as peanut butter is possible by making use of flavor ingredients such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural 2, 3, 5 Trimethyl Pyrazine.
Regardless of the exact flavor that you are going for, one of the key things to keep in mind is how important it is to use only the best ingredients in pet treats and other pet food products. People want to keep their pets safe, and by making use of only the best natural ingredients, pet treat manufacturers can assure their buyers that their products will keep pets happy and healthy for many years to come.
