What is pet food made of?
Pet food in Australia encompasses a wide range of ingredients, but the specifics and their proportions can vary depending on the type and brand. Let’s explore these components to better understand what goes into food for pets.
Animal derivatives, or by-products are the primary ingredients in most mass-produced pet food. These are parts of the animal not typically valued for human diets, such as the organ meats, but are extremely nutrient-dense. Other muscle proteins, including chicken and beef, are used extensively in the production of pet foods. Most pet food is typically made by cooking these meat sources and then drying cooked meat, excluding parts like blood, hair, and hooves. The resulting dried ingredient is then added to the pet food mix.
Pet food can also include cereals, grains, and a plethora of vegetables. These ingredients, often in dry form, are ground or milled before being mixed into the final product. Additionally, pet food formulations may include added minerals and fats, helping to make the pet food more digestible and provide more flavour.
