Pet Food

Niklacell CMC is a useful hydrocolloid for the pet food industry, providing with different effects depending on the consistency of the final product.

During the manufacturing of pet feed CMC supports the extrusion process of both semi-moist and dry pet food.

For the application in semi-moist pet food CMC works as a binding agent for moisture, works as a film building element, helping to improve the appearance of the product.


In pellet form the addition of CMC to the pet food helps to thicken, bind and conglutinate the components together.


Niklacell CMC works as a physical binder in pelleted animal feed - the application of CMC in the product hold the pellets together and prevent the accumulation of fines in the product package during shipment.
