Shiguang Yu, PhD Conference topic:
Health benefits of nutritional lipids beyond regulatory recommendations
Shiguang Yu, PhD

Shiguang Yu, PhD, global technical manager for DSM Nutritional Products, presents new research findings that provide evidence-based guidance for the improvement of pet food quality and new product development via the health benefits of nutritional lipids. According to these new studies, significant health benefits can be achieved when nutritional lipids are used in pet food beyond the recommendations of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and FEDIAF (the European Pet Food Industry). For example, higher dietary DHA concentration improves visual acuity and trainability of growing puppies; pet foods with high fish oil concentrations improve clinical signs of dogs and cats with joint disease; and nutritional lipids in various forms significantly improve cognitive function in old dogs and cats.  

Yu holds a doctorate in nutrition from Wageningen University in the Netherlands and an MBA from Baker University in the US. He has over 20 years of experience working at leading global pet food companies in the areas of pet food formulation and product design, new ingredient evaluation, product development and clinical trials.
