Regenasure Glucosamine HCl Receives GRAS Status for Animal Feed

<p>Cargill&#8217;s Regenasure&#174; glucosamine HCl is now generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in pet food of dogs, cats and horses.</p>

MINNEAPOLIS—Cargill’s Regenasure® glucosamine HCl is now generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in pet food. An independent panel determined that Regenasure glucosamine can be safely consumed by dogs, cats and horses under the conditions of its intended use.

“Regenasure glucosamine has been a staple of the human dietary supplement and functional food markets for more than a decade," said Mike Fleagle, Regenasure brand manager.  “Today’s announcement assures pet food manufacturers that they can safely incorporate Regenasure glucosamine in the products they sell to the companion animal joint health market."

Regenasure glucosamine is the only GRAS, fully traceable vegetarian glucosamine produced exclusively in the US and available for the pet food industry. It is sold as an easy-to-use dry powder ingredient and packaged in 25 kg boxes or 450 kg super sacks.

Earlier this year Cargill released ViaTech, a line of stevia-based sweeteners.
