Posted by Arslan on January 3rd, 2019
Jerky meat is cured meat which has been preserved by cutting the meat into long, thin strips, and then drying it. Jerky meat can be preserved by methods such as dry curing, lethality treatment, and others. Meat for pet jerky treat is sourced from chicken, beef, duck, lamb, and pork, and is made with an additional combination of various vegetable products such as sweet potatoes and dry fruits. Pet jerky treats are preferred by pet owners, as they are rich in protein, and contain low levels of fat, hence making them ideal for supplementing the daily protein requirement of pets such as cats and dogs. Furthermore, pet jerky treats such as chicken jerky treats are typically gluten-free.
Gluten is a composite of glutelins and storage protein. Gluten can cause skin problems, digestive disease, and allergy in dogs. Alongside the nutritional profile, jerky treats are ready to serve, and do not require any other preparation, thus providing convenience to pet owners. All these factors have resulted in the inclusion of pet jerky treats in the product portfolios of key players. However, according to the Food and Drug Administration, over 3,600 dogs suffered from diseases and over 500 died in the U.S from 2007 to 2013 by eating jerky treats, which caused a setback in the global jerky treat market, as no prominent cause of the illness was detected by the FDA, but they warned to avoid jerky treats manufactured in China. Hence, key players are manufacturing their products in the U.S. and Europe, and labelling the origin of their products with the respective regions, as they have stringent government rules and regulations to adhere to for the production of cured meat, which results in a sense of assurance among pet owners. Moreover, there is an increasing shift among pet owners opting for natural diets for their pets, which is expected to drive the growth of the global pet jerky treat market over the forecast period.
