Vitamins, minerals, other feed additives and nutraceuticals are typically incorporated into pet food products in very small amounts. By combining and blending these micro-nutrition ingredients together into a premix, they can then be accurately weighed as one.

Addition of micro-nutrition ingredients to a pet food product via a premix helps to evenly and safely disperse them throughout the final mix, ensuring that nutritional targets are met safely and accurately. Premixes are therefore highly complex ingredient blends that must be expertly formulated and manufactured. Trouw Nutrition are the premixing and blending experts.

Options Available

Custom Formulation

Trouw Nutrition custom formulates many of our vitamin and trace mineral premixes, giving us the experience to tailor your premixes to your precise specifications and goals. From non-GMO, grain-free, organic, vegetarian, vegan, to dog breed-specific, we will customise the premix to accommodate your exact needs. 

Vitamin Premixes

Whether dry or liquid feed, vitamins vary in stability and solubility, affecting the form in which they are included and how they will ultimately be delivered. Minerals can adversely affect vitamins' stability and potency, making straight vitamin premixes more stable while minimising loss of potency. With the proper formulation, vitamin premix shelf life can last up to six months.

Mineral Premixes

When storing a premix for longer than 45 days, separating the premix into a straight vitamin premix and a straight mineral premix lengthens the shelf life. Because of the less volatile nature of mineral premixes, it maintains an extended shelf life of 12 to 24 months.

Vitamin - Trace Mineral Premixes

By combining vitamins and trace minerals into a single premix, the risk of ingredient error and "hand-adds" drastically decreases. When you use a Trouw Nutrition premix, we assume the high-risk burden for you.

We choose Trouw Nutrition's premixes because of their commitment to safety and quality. If Trouw Nutrition says it’s the right thing to do, we need to listen to them and do it.
