Efficacy of vinegar in expanded canine diets for product security – The purpose of this topic is to discuss a specific study executed to determine the efficacy of including vinegar in a typical dry expanded canine diet in regard to furthering existing controls for mold growth and providing a residual agent for APCs. The presentation will walk the attendees through the entire study, beginning with the development of the study protocol (formulation design, decision tree, risk assessment, equipment profile, process profile, etcetera), through protocol execution and ending with a review of the resultant product analysis and shelf life performance.
Key points to be addressed: Discovery of appropriate research protocol development | Awareness for operational flexibility of a single-screw architecture (represents more than approximately 95 percent of all pet food production, OTC) | Realize the viability of vinegar components for post-production product security
