Featured Ingredients: STAY-C®lean dental support in OSCAR food

It is reported that around 70% of cats and 80% of dogs develop periodontal disease by the age of 3 years. OSCAR’s Adult and Adult Care cat food range, and OSCAR's Adult Complete Wheat Gluten Free range contain a newly added ingredient known as ‘STAY-C® 50’ to help support your pet's dental care routine.


1) What is STAY-C®lean?

STAY-C®lean is a patented, specialised, highly soluble and bioavailable source of Vitamin C. Originally, it was developed by DSM Nutritional Products for the human dental care industry and can be used in mouthwashes and toothpastes. The application of STAY-C®lean was subsequently developed for pet dental care applications. It is a fine white power, which is applied onto kibble after extrusion. It is a highly soluble ingredient, which dissolves in the saliva – important for its action in the mouth.









2) How does STAY-C®lean benefit dental hygiene?

Whilst it is generally accepted that the most effective home care method to minimise dental plaque is to brush teeth using pet toothpaste, additional dental support can be gained from cleverly designed pet nutrition products such as OSCAR’s Adult and Adult Care Cat food range and OSCAR's Adult Complete Wheat Gluten Free range, which have added STAY-C® 50. Studies have shown that STAY-C®lean helps reduce development of dental plaque and the formation of tartar. As a bioavailable Vitamin C source, STAY-C®lean also supports collagen formation which is needed for the formation and maintenance of healthy, strong gums.

3) Tell me more about STAY-C®lean as a source of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants help to protect cells and tissues against damage from free radicals and are important for the normal function of the immune system, too!
