AAFCO Urges More Research on Hemp Products for Feed

Association says more data needed on products’ safety and efficacy

source: Feed Strategy

The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) is urging the hemp and animal feed industries to continue researching hemp and hemp byproducts for use in animal feed and pet food.

AAFCO said that when data gathering on the products’ safety and efficacy is complete, it can formally define the various ingredients and provide standards for safe pet food and livestock feed with that information.

The products to be evaluated include whole hemp plants, hemp seed oil, CBD, and other cannabinoids.

“We understand the hemp industry is eager to enter the animal food market, but we are concerned that not enough research has been completed on these products,” Susan M. Hays, AAFCO executive director told Feed Strategy.

“That’s why we are urging the hemp industry to conduct appropriate research and submit their results to us for review as a normal step in our ingredient approval process.”
