Pea Protein Trending in Pet Nutrition

Oct 25, 2014

At SupplySide West’s Animal Nutrition Summit, market research Datamonitor predicted that pea protein and other plant proteins will see increasing usage by the pet-nutrition market. With this in mind, Horn Animal Wellness (La Mirada, CA) announced at the trade show that it is now distributing Emsland Group’s Empet pea protein and potato ingredients for animal nutrition.

“Emsland Group offers a unique portfolio of pea and potato flake products that allow our customers to use label claims consumers are looking for, such as ‘non-GMO,’ ‘gluten free,’ ‘grain free,’ ‘pure and simple ingredients’ or ‘all-natural,’” said Jane Petrolino,vice president, Horn Animal Wellness, in a press release. “All of Emsland's ingredients are manufactured without the use of genetically modified plants and are free from genetically modified genetic substances.”
