Potato starch is one of the most used plant-based ingredients for pet food. It is an important source of energy for pets and is used in many formulas as it ensures that pet food has the right texture and structure due to its binding qualities. Alternative grains exist, however, these ingredients contain gluten. Therefore, potato starch is an excellent grain-free and gluten-free option for pet food. Potato starch is a co-product released during the slicing process of food-grade potatoes with a low carbon footprint. Plant-based pet food with a low carbon footprint perfectly meets the pet owner’s evolving requirements. Native- and extruded potato starch is available.
