regarding turmeric relates to its
potential as a preservative for

fats to retard oxidation. In one
study with a blend of fish oil and
flaxseed oil treated with curcumin
(0.1 and 0.2% food dry basis)
and applied to a pet food, the
turmeric-treated foods performed

a short-term oxidation study (12
weeks).

market. There is no separate pet
supply channel for this ingredient.
Thus, prices may be much higher
than for standard commodity
ingredients typically encountered
in the pet food trade. Therein lies
the challenge of determining the
amount to include in the formula
- finding that right mix between
effective dose, palatability effects
(if any), impact on color of the
finished product and cost relative
to the expectations of the pet food
purchaser.

used at relatively small amounts, it
may benefit from being delivered
to the diet in a premix along with
other small inclusion additives
(e.g., vitamins, trace minerals,
antioxidant blends). Further,
sequencing in the manufacturing
plant may be necessary as the
