World's First Dog Treats Using FeedKind® Vegan Pet Protein Ingredient

  • Dr. Clauder's and protein pioneer Calysta have launched an air-dried dog treat featuring FeedKind® Pet protein.
  • FeedKind Pet protein is a non-GMO fermented ingredient with crude protein content exceeding 65% and a rich supply of essential amino acids.
  • The product is approved for use in pet foods in the EU, meeting the growing demand for high-quality, nutritious, and environmentally friendly pet food.

Dr. Clauder’s has joined forces with protein pioneer Calysta to launch the world’s first dog treats made with FeedKind® Pet protein, a revolutionary new pet food ingredient.

Announced at the world’s leading pet trade fair, Interzoo, the groundbreaking air-dried treat presented by Dr. Clauder’s makes the most of Calysta’s nutritionally rich protein, which is produced by natural fermentation – making it a perfect non-GMO ingredient that meets market demands for nutritional quality, palatability, and health for pets.

After its debut at Interzoo, the Dr. Clauder Trainee snack cultivated protein treat featuring FeedKind Pet, will be made available for sale in Europe.

FeedKind Pet protein is a fermented ingredient that is nutrient-dense, has a complete amino acid profile for dogs, and has postbiotic properties that help maintain a healthy gut in animals. Additionally, FeedKind Pet is a vegan protein source.

Herman Sloot, vice president commercial development at Calysta said: “Dog owners have high expectations for their pet’s food and are increasingly conscious about the source, quality, and safety of the ingredients used."

For the first time, Europe’s pet food sector has the option to choose a high-quality source of protein that is nutritious and kind to the environment. Calysta is now producing at significant scale, and FeedKind Pet is approved for use in pet foods in the EU. We are excited Dr. Clauder’s is introducing a snack featuring FeedKind Pet protein as we set a new standard for dog treats – one that prioritises both taste and health, while looking after our planet.”

Alexander Gerards, Managing partner at Dr. Clauder’s solutions for pets said: ‘’Novel proteins produced with respect for nature, which are vegetarian, nutritious and tasty are well sought after. We are happy that with FeedKind Pet we were able to develop a dog treat that delivers just that: vegetarian, complete amino acid profile and delicious. Dr. Clauder´s Trainee Snack cultivated proteins is a true innovation meeting market demand."
