Enzymes for Petfood Digest Production

A model system for the production of digest is to finely grind the meat product or other protein. Water may or may not be needed depending on if the meat product is frozen and needs to be thawed or if it fresh. Add the enzyme of choice at a rate of .1% to .25% based on the total weight of the meat. Addition of the enzyme maybe done at the start of the cook cycle or at the point the slurry reaches the desired temperature.

Enzymes other than papain may be more effective for certain types of byproducts or may give a different palatability result.
