Lutkala has significant water binding and expansion capabilities, which play an important role during designing wet nutrition products for pets. When used as a thickener in dog and cat food, Lutkala:
- facilitates obtaining a meat-like texture, which satisfies animal sensory needs,
- prevents undesired splitting and syneresis,
- makes the food appealing to pets due to its neutral sensory properties,
- does not have undesired ‘chemical’ smell or taste,
- provides pets with appropriate amounts of fiber required for the proper functioning of bowels,
- allows to lower the production costs.
