Presentation Description:

Impact of alternative proteins on pet food extrusion— Henry presents multiple studies executed to determine the efficacy of replacing or fortifying fresh meat and meat meals with new vegetable or grain protein sources. He explores developing study protocol (formulation design, decision tree, risk assessment, equipment profile and process profile) through to protocol execution and ends with a review of the resultant product analysis and product performance, including process variances, final product specifications, kibble integrity analysis, palatability and more.


Will Henry holds associate science and bachelor’s of science degrees in engineering. He has been an integral part of the pet food extrusion industry for more than 20 years. For the past 15 years, Henry’s focus has been in the area of research, both in the refinement of the single screw extruder production architecture and the development/investigation of new product development for the pet food market.
