Superior nutrient consistency and decrease in gastric upset and odors
The use of soy protein in pet diets is often overlooked due to concerns surrounding anti-nutritional factors (ANFs) and the negative impacts they can have pets. With ANFs removed, soy protein provides an opportunity to improve consistency of nutrient analysis while providing important benefits that contribute to animal health.
Take a look at some of the benefits below.
Superior nutrient consistency
Protein sources often form the foundation of pet food diets. When formulating a diet, consistency of ingredients is key in ensuring that minimum nutrient requirements are always met to support animal health.
When using meat as the main protein source in pet diets, the nutrient composition is often variable and dependent upon the combination and proportion of muscles, organs, and bones that are included. Soy protein, on the other hand, is a reliable, balanced, and complete protein choice.
Soy has a high protein content while being highly digestible, and containing all essential amino acids to support normal growth, maintenance, and health. By removing anti-nutritional factors naturally found in soy, Hamlet Protein offers a product that enhances digestibility of nutrients while guaranteeing consistency in the nutrient profile of the protein source to keep pets healthy.
Decreases gastric upset and unpleasant odors
A major concern for pet owners when selecting a diet is the potential for gastric upset in the form of diarrhea, gas, and the unpleasant odors that come along with it.
The anti-nutritional factors (ANFs) naturally found within soy can contribute to gastric upset and impact nutrient digestibility, leading to hesitancy from consumers about selecting a soy-based diet for their pet. However, with our specialty soy products, nearly all of the ANFs are removed, leaving behind a high-quality protein source that reduces the incidence of gastric upset while improving nutrient digestibility.
Removal of ANFs from soy protein also decreases fecal output while maintaining a healthy stool consistency and reduces the production of odor-causing compounds in the feces. Feeding Hamlet Protein’s high-quality soy protein keeps the pet’s stomachs and owner’s noses happy.
