INGREDIENT ISSUES

TOP 5 takeaways

1

Coconut meal is a new ingredient turning up in pet

food processes, the functional properties are partly due to
the water-holding capacity and swelling capacity that are
similar to wheat flour, and higher water retention capacity
and fat absorption capacity. No readily available reports were
found in which coconut flour was evaluated in any application through extrusion or in retort applications associated with
canned foods, so we are left to speculate on how it will behave.
While all indications are that coconut meal has a favorable composition relative to other starch sources, detailed
nutritional evaluation has been very limited outside of several
studies in pigs. Whether this is due to the ingredient being
primarily from far-flung tropical regions, its use predominately as a whole food or its primary application in confectionary goods is not known. There are clearly no reports of
coconut meal or flour in dog or cat diets; this needs to be
remedied. Sourcing may also be a challenge as this is an
ingredient that generally follows the coconut oil market. This
should improve as the oil market continues to grow. Also,
