WACKER Provides Unique Solutions for Creating Powerful Supplement Formulations

When caring for pets, owners must consider many factors ranging from choosing the right healthy ingredients and contending with the pickiest of eaters. We offer innovative ingredients that enable powerful and tasty supplements in various formats.

Pet product trends are strongly influenced by consumers’ dietary trends and preferences. Curcumin and Coenzyme Q10 are highly popular nutraceuticals for human supplements but can also provide many health benefits to animals. Studies show curcumin acts as an antioxidant that can improve joint and immune health, while CoQ10 is commonly used to improved cardiovascular health. However, bioavailability of these lipophilic bioactives is limited. By complexation with gamma-cyclodextrin, WACKER developed CAVACURMIN®, a curcumin with almost 40 times higher bioavailability, and CAVAQ10®, a coenzyme Q10 with 18 times higher bioavailability.

Pet owners are looking for health-promoting ingredients, such as plant extracts. However, these often carry an unpleasant or bitter aftertaste. Our CAVAMAX® cyclodextrins are ring-shaped carbohydrates that optimize aroma profiles by masking such unwanted odors and flavors. WACKER’s range of ingredients also includes plant-based FERMOPURE® L-cysteine and L-cystine for creating savory flavors that are craved by pets.

All of our solutions are:

  • highly dose efficient
  • suitable for various application forms
  • free from additives
  • vegan friendly
