Pet Food Trends
Product trends and developments within the pet food and human packaged food industries are drawing ever closer together, with the continuing trend of pet humanization1. According to a recent Euromonitor report2, supplements that target specific ailments, such as joint and cardiovascular issues among dogs and cats, are particularly popular among pet owners. Regenasure® glucosamine allows pet food manufacturers to capture value with products that target the joint health market.
Cargill’s Regenasure® glucosamine HCl is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use in pet food and/or animal feed of dogs, cats and horses. An independent panel of experts composed of respected veterinarians completed a comprehensive review of the product’s safety and toxicology data and issued a favorable GRAS opinion.
