Abstract

A probiotically and prebiotically active pet food comprising a germinated seed or grain is provided. The pet food also includes probiotic bacteria; a ground dry carbohydrate; and a humectant. The pet food is preferably formulated as a dry baked biscuit or a semi-moist biscuit. It provides a nutritious pet food with prebiotic and probiotic benefits. The invention also provides a method of preparing a probiotically and prebiotically active pet food composition comprising the steps of providing a pre-mix composition comprising a germinated seed or grain; a ground dry carbohydrate; probiotic bacteria and a humectant; blending the pre-mix composition with water; mixing the pre-mix composition to form a pet food composition; cooking the pet food composition in an oven at an internal temperature of the pet food composition of not greater than about 120°C for about 10 minutes to 20 minutes.

Claim(s)

1. A probiotically and prebiotically active pet food composition comprising: a germinated seed or grain; probiotic bacteria; a ground dry carbohydrate; and a humectant, wherein the water activity of the composition is from of 0.1 A w to 0.8A W , and wherein the moisture content of the composition is from 2% to 30%.;
18. A method of preparing a probiotically and prebiotically active pet food composition comprising the following steps: providing a pre-mix composition comprising a germinated seed or grain, a ground dry carbohydrate, probiotic bacteria and a humectant; blending the pre-mix composition with water to form a pet food composition; cooking the pet food composition in an oven at an internal temperature of the pet food composition of not greater than 120°C for 10 minutes to 20 minutes.;
20. A method of preparing a probiotically and prebiotically active pet food composition comprising the following steps: providing a pre-mix composition comprising a germinated seed or grain, a ground dry carbohydrate, probiotic bacteria and a humectant; blending the pre-mix composition with water to form a pet food composition; pasteurizing the pet food composition in a first oven zone, the first oven zone being set to create an internal temperature of the food composition of between 90°C and 120°C; cooking the pet food composition in a second oven zone, the second oven zone being set to create an internal temperature of the food composition of between 70°C and 120°C; cooking the pet food composition in a third oven zone, the third oven zone being set to create an internal temperature of the pet food composition of between 50°C and 120°C.
