Glycerin for Pet Treats

Posted by Nigel Kheng on Oct 5, 2020 8:30:00 AM

Similar to many conferences today, the first-ever virtual Petfood Forum has just concluded and we learnt that our furry friends play an ever so important role in today’s isolated and virtual world!

In the Twin Rivers Technologies (TRT) world, we continue to ensure supply chain reliability in the form of glycerin to our furry friends despite global glycerin shortages due to Covid-19. Glycerin acts as a humectant in pet treats while also improving palatability. Google glycerin and you will find the world of information about this versatile material that is odorless, non-toxic, sweet tasting, water loving and colorless.

It is widely known that pet food consumers do not accept certain glycerin types. At TRT, we pride ourselves in having a superior glycerin product that is 100% hydrolysis based with no biodiesel and methyl ester crude used, zero salt and zero methanol content in our process. We are also proud to be partners of US pet food manufacturers of all sizes in guaranteeing this quality.

TRT has regularly invested ($35 million since 2008) in our SQF and GMP certified food grade facility. The glycerin we offer is approved for human consumption and meets the USP spec. We also have the capability of offering segregated brands for non-GMO vegetable, coconut only, palm free and non-vegetable refined glycerin. From the voice of our pet customers, they seem to prefer non-vegetable glycerin for palatability preference and coconut only glycerin for sustainability reasons.
