September issue All About Feed now online

The September edition of All About Feed magazine has been published online. In this issue, you can read about sweeteners for animal diets, feline hairball control by adding cellulose to petfood and we talked to Jeff Cannon, CEO of Diamond V.

Taste modifiers are now regularly used in feed to improve palatability. They help to ensure feed is appetising and that optimum feed intake is achieved. Swiss company Pancosma has been producing sweeteners for 30 years. What lessons have been learned? The article can be read on page 6 of this issue.

Hairball control in cat diets

Research data indicate that supplemental dietary cellulose reduces hairball symptoms and raises faecal hair excretion in cats. But the type and amount of cellulose determine the efficacy. All About Feed’s pet food expert Anton Beynen delved into this topic. The article can be found on page 12 of this issue.
