Multiple methods may be used for analyzing palatant coating consistency on a kibble’s surface. In this study, we tested four of those methods on dry cat kibble: electronic tongue, surface pH, sodium meter and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).
Get the results in AFB researcher Punyatoya Mohapatra’s Petfood Forum 2016 poster presentation, including insights into the questions:
• Why is evaluating palatant coating consistency important?
• What are pros and cons of each method?
• Which method is best for identifying the exact percent coated?
• Which methods are fastest? Most affordable?
