Application in petfood

Plant extracts are also used a lot in petfood. The application for pets is more focused on allergies and overall health.

For example, scientists at The University of Nottingham are harnessing ancient Chinese herbal remedies to help pets suffering with allergies.

They are investigating whether natural plant extracts such as liquorice and ginger, used for centuries for their healing properties, could be used to treat allergic conditions in animals.
