  • Patent number: 4800099
    Abstract: A dry hard canine biscuit having visually apparent, discrete particles, which contain (i) meat and/or meat by-product and/or (ii) farinaceous material and/or textured vegetable protein, distributed substantially uniformly throughout the biscuit is obtained by blending the non-fat solids portion of a canine biscuit dough with the particles which are substantially inert with respect to the dog biscuit dough, mixing the dry-blended mixture with water and with the fat portion of the pet biscuit dough to form a dough, forming the dough using low shear into pieces, and baking and drying the formed pieces to obtain a microbiologically stable product which can be packaged without a barrier material. The particle inertness is made possible by using particles having: (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less and (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of said biscuit dough.

  • Patent number: 4743459
    Abstract: A dry hard canine biscuit having visually apparent, discrete meat and/or meat by-product particles distributed substantially uniformly through the biscuit is obtained by blending the non-fat solids portion of a canine biscuit dough with the particles which are substantially inert with respect to the dog biscuit dough, mixing the dry-blended mixture with water and with the fat portion of the pet biscuit dough to form a dough, forming the dough into pieces using low-shear, non-cooking forming conditions, and baking and drying the formed pieces to obtain a microbiologically stable product which can be packaged without a barrier material. Meat and/or meat by-product particle inertness is made possible by using particles having (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less and (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of said biscuit dough.

  • Patent number: 4743460
    Abstract: A dry soft canine biscuit having visually apparent, discrete particles, which contain (i) meat and/or meat by-product and/or (ii) farinaceous material and/or textured vegetable protein, distributed substantially uniformly throughout the biscuit is obtained by blending the non-fat solid portion of a soft biscuit dough with particles which are substantially inert with respect to the biscuit dough, mixing the dry-blended mixture with water plus optional humectant to form an intermediate stage dough, admixing the latter with the fat portion of the biscuit dough to form a final dough, forming the final dough using low shear into pieces, and baking and drying the formed pieces to obtain a microbiologically stable product which can be packaged without a barrier material. The particle inertness is made possible by using particles having: (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less and, (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of the soft biscuit dough.

The particle inertness is made possible by using particles having: (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less and (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of said biscuit dough. There is a substantial absence of particle color bleed into the biscuit.

  • Patent number: 4743458
    Abstract: A dry soft canine biscuit having visually apparent, discrete meat and/or meat by-product particles distributes substantially uniformly throughout the biscuit is obtained by blending the non-fat solids portion of a soft biscuit dough with particles which are substantially inert with respect to the biscuit dough, mixing the dry-blended mixture with water plus optional humectant to form an intermediate stage dough, admixing the latter with the fat portion of the biscuit dough to form a final dough, forming the final dough into pieces, and baking and drying the formed pieces to obtain a microbiologically stable product which can be packaged without a barrier material. Meat and/or meat by-product particle inertness is made possible by using particles having: (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less, and (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of said soft biscuit dough.

  • Patent number: 4735808
    Abstract: This invention discloses a low calorie dietetic dog biscuit containing vegetable hulls. The vegetable hulls are fibrous components and reduce the overall caloric content of the biscuits to between about 320 and 330 calories per 100 grams of said biscuit. The biscuits can use a blend of proteinaceous and farinaceous ingredients such that the overall protein content of the biscuits is reduced when compared to standard dog biscuits. The preferred embodiment is a low calorie dog biscuit including rice hulls.

  • Patent number: 4534990
    Abstract: A dry soft canine biscuit having visually apparent, discrete particles, which contain (i) meat and/or meat by-product and/or (ii) farinaceous material and/or textured vegetable protein, distributed substantially uniformly throughout the biscuit is obtained by blending the non-fat solids portion of a soft biscuit dough with particles which are substantially inert with respect to the biscuit dough, mixing the dry-blended mixture with water plus optional humectant to form an intermediate stage dough, admixing the latter with the fat portion of the biscuit dough to form a final dough, forming the final dough using low shear into pieces, and baking and drying the formed pieces to obtain a microbiologically stable product which can be packaged without a barrier material. The particle inertness is made possible by using particles having: (1) a moisture content of 35 percent by weight or less and, (2) a water activity which is less than the water activity of the soft biscuit dough.
