Fat Type and Amount: Its Impact on Palatability

AFB International’s recent research on preferences in kibble fat sources and concentrations can be found in the May issue of Petfood Industry Magazine in a new white paper titled “Fat Type and Amount: Its Impact on Palatability”. Led by AFB scientist Greg Hibbard, these findings were also presented in a poster session at the 2019 Petfood Forum in Kansas City. “We wanted to understand the correlation between palatability and various topical fat sources and their applied amounts so we can advise pet food manufacturers on potential adjustments to make their dog and cat foods more palatable,” said Hibbard.
