Pet Treats

The use of Solka-Floc® and JustFiber® powdered cellulose in pet treats can provide many functional benefits. In processing, extrusion rates can be increased by up to 25% due to the unique water binding capabilities of cellulose.

Functionality and Product Suggestions

Improved Extrusion Rates
Theoretically, a less sticky formulation will extrude faster. Improvements in extrusion rates are directly related to the level of cellulose in the product. Used at a level of 5%, the unique water binding properties of cellulose and the formation of fiber-starch complexes will result in decreased resistance and faster extrusion rates; extrusion rates can be increased by up to 25%.

Suggested Grades:

SolkaFloc® 40 FCC
100 FCC
200 FCC
3 - 10%
JustFiber® BF C40
BVF 200 FCC
WWF 200



Improved Texture and Pliability
Pet treats containing moderate levels of Solka-Floc® and JustFiber® result in improved stability and consistent uniformity. The texture and pliability can be improved resulting in less breakage.

Suggested Grades:

SolkaFloc® 40 FCC
100 FCC
200 FCC
3 - 10%
JustFiber® BF C40
BVF 200 FCC
WWF 200



Improved Water Holding Capability / Liquid Binding
The level of cellulose used can impact the amount of water retained. Longer cellulose fibers retain water more aggressively than shorter fibers do. Water, can play an important role in creating high moisture, palatable pet treats when used with cellulose.
