Rigorous feeding trial proves bioavailability
Our feeding trial, conducted to standards that exceed AAFCO guidelines, measured 49 blood values (vs the standard four). Results showed that our food is complete and balanced, bioavailable, and that dogs thrive long-term while eating it. Read more here.
Fresh food has better digestibility and reduces blood lipids
Recent research has shown that fresh, lightly cooked food has greater nutrient digestibility and results in reduced blood triglyceride concentrations compared to extruded diets (aka kibble). Read more here.
Fresh vegetables are associated with reduced cancer risk
Research shows that feeding dogs fresh vegetables like the ones in our food can reduce the risk of some kinds of cancer. Read more here.
High heat processing (hello, kibble) found to produce carcinogens
Ultra-processed food is made at temperatures that have been shown by research to reduce protein quality, decrease palatability, destroy heat-sensitive vitamins, and produce compounds known to be carcinogenic. Read more here.
Many commercial pet foods are mislabeled
A 2014 study shows that almost 40% of pet food products contained meat not listed on the label. Our food is made to human-food standards; that means we know, and customers can see, exactly what we’re putting into dogs’ bowls. Read more here.
