Stengel Oils & its Omega-3 welcome you to Booth 1832.
Consumers increasingly expect and demand pet foods to provide nutritionally complete, balanced formulations using ingredients that offer health benefits while being both safe and tasty. Flax meal and oil, manufactured by Stengel Oils, are such ingredients.
A number of pet food companies have recognized that flax offers a multitude of nutritional components to meet formulation needs. It contains health-promoting compounds such as Omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), fiber, proteins and lignin (powerful anti-oxidants.)
Both animals AND humans cannot make ALA so it must be obtained from the diet. Fatty acids such as ALA have been reported to reduce inflammation associated with obesity, diabetes, cancer and arthritis.
Flax offers additional benefits by not being a grain or containing gluten. This way it is suitable for use in grain-free and gluten-free pet foods. Flax is also non-GMO & available organically.
