Selko Fylax Petfood

Among the most important quality indicators for pet food are stability and freshness during storage. Careful extrusion processing helps to achieve those targets but many times at the cost of extrusion efficiency and profitability. Optimising the moisture profile while keeping mould growth under control helps to maximise quality and process targets. Fylax Petfood supports moisture profile optimization while reducing the risk of mould growth.

Selko Fysal 

Enterobacteriaceae (like Salmonella) contamination in pet food can threaten pet ánd their owner’s health. Especially high protein materials are susceptible to harmful pathogens. Organic acid-based functional ingredients like Fysal can improve petfood hygiene and reduce the risk of recontamination thereby supporting the health of our pets and their owners.


In recent years the majority of pet food recalls were due to aflatoxin B1 contamination which is potentially harmful. Long-term exposure to low or moderate mycotoxin levels can result in a suboptimal health status of pets. Reduce the mycotoxin impact with TOXO-XL by preventing and mitigating the adverse effects of dietary mycotoxins in pet health.

Selko Optimin

Many trace minerals become unstable in the harsh environment of the digestive tract and may become passively absorbed. Optimin® Organic Trace Minerals remain stable and available, keeping the nutrients available for the pet when they need them. With over 20 years of scientific research and chemistry demonstrating Optimin chelated minerals are similar chemistry to nature​, they are the trace mineral of choice.
