Thermal and mechanical constraints of dry food extrusion make it impossible to directly incorporate probiotics into the kibble core. Today, the only solution remains to coat the probiotic with a palatant.


Actisaf® Sc 50 PET has a record-breaking viability of 18 months on kibbles solving the challenge of stability of dry food.


The unique dust-free micropearl form and the excellent flowability of Actisaf® Sc 50 PET make the blending with a palatant easier and allow a good adhesion on dry food.


Actisaf® Sc 50 PET has been tested with recognized US blenders and market representative powder palatants to confirm the easy application. Incorporation of up to 33% of Actisaf® Sc 50 PET in palatants shows satisfactory results on both physical and viability aspects.
