Applying polymer science to petfood production

When applied properly, basic polymer science principles can assist in ingredient screening, formulation development and process design in the production of petfoods.
Polymer science — the study of the glass and melt transitions of polymers — has been developed and used by the synthetic polymer industry for many years. In recent years, the principles of polymer science have been applied to the petfood extrusion process to better understand and predict processing effects.
