Liver Meal
by Gary Pfalzbot
About the Author

Liver Meal is a high protein specialty product manufactured from whole livers. These materials are processed under controlled time and temperature conditions and then dried to provide a fine meal product. The protein and fat content of this product provide for an exceptional source of energy and a real liver flavor for specialty pet food formulas.

Liver Meal performs as an excellent ingredient in pet food formulas, as well as aquaculture feeds. Suggested usage levels of 1 to 3% will provide significant palatability increase when applied externally if mixed with fat prior to joint application. Internal application can also result in increased palatability at usage levels of 3 to 6%.
