Canned Pet Food

Solka-Floc® Powdered Cellulose and JustFiber® Vegetable Fibers have proven functional advantages in a wide range of canned pet food applications. An excellent source of crude fiber, Solka-Floc® and JustFiber® have a high degree of water binding capability. Therefore, canned pet foods, retain their moisture and texture to improve palatability and control caloric density. IFC Cellulose Fiber are effective choices for providing shape and texture to canned pet food products while aiding the extrusion rate.

Used in conjunction with gelling agents, such as carrageenan, powdered cellulose can effectively improve the rheology of gravies and sauces typically present in canned pet food.
