Freeze-dried Enterococcus faecium may able to lead a double life in pet food industry. Freeze-dried Enterococcus faecium can be identified both as a substitute for Salmonella in thermal processing validations and a special form of probiotics in formulations of pet foods. For the first life, freezedried Enterococcus faecium can be used as an indicator since its high thermal tolerance during processing, which is able to validate the inactivation efficiency of thermal processing in pet food industry, such as extrusion cooking. For a second life, freeze-dried Enterococcus faecium can be used as a special form of probiotics and added at the beginning of the process maintaining considerable number of variable cells, or also, can be directly added into pet foods without increasing the moisture of final products. It can be asserted that the double life of freeze-dried Enterococcus faecium satisfied both quality and nutrition aspects concerned in pet food industry
