Pet Nutrition: ‘Benefits of Grain Free Foods’

Pet Nutrition: ‘Benefits of Grain Free Foods’


GOOD MORNING! YOU KNOW, IF THERE’S A TREND
IN THE GROCERY AISLE, IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE IT HITS THE PET FOOD AISLE. AND
WHY NOT? WE WANT THE BEST FOR ALL MEMBERS OF OUR FAMILY, INCLUDING OUR BELOVED PETS.
JOINING ME TO TALK ABOUT THE GROWING DEMAND OF GLUTEN FREE AND GRAIN FREE PET FOOD IS
MICHELE DIXON, A HEALTH AND NUTRITION SPECIALIST FROM PETCUREAN. WELCOME. SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU
HERE. I’M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE. THANK YOU, JULIE.
GLUTEN- AND GRAIN-FREE OPTIONS ARE REALLY TRENDING RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE JUST LIKE WITH
PEOPLE FOOD, OUR DOGS AND CATS HAVE ALLERGIES AND DIETARY CONCERNS AS WELL. IN PARTICULAR
WHEN PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING A GRAIN-FREE DIET, THEY OFTEN THINK THAT IT’S LOW CARB.
RIGHT. BUT IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT NO GRAIN
DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN LOW CARB. THE CARBS THAT WOULD BE IN THOSE TYPE OF FOODS WOULD
ALSO BE SOMETHING LIKE PEAS, POTATOES, TAPIOCA, SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
SO WHAT SHOULD WE REALLY WATCH OUT FOR? YEAH, WELL FOOD ALLERGIES CAN SOMETIMES BE
CONTRIBUTED TO GRAIN. PEOPLE OFTEN THINK CORN. IT IS OFTEN A MEAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN THAT
CAUSES AN ALLERGIC REACTION. SO BECAUSE GRAINS CAN BE AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF ENERGY, IT’S
IMPORTANT TO NOT NECESSARILY ELIMINATE THAT PARTICULAR GRAIN BUT PERHAPS ELIMIATE THE
GRAIN THAT YOU KNOW MIGHT BE THE POTENTIAL ALLERGAN. GRAINS ARE A GREAT WAY OF CONTRIBUTING
ENERGY ONCE THEY’RE COOKED AND GROUND. GOOD TO KNOW! BUT WHAT IF OUR PETS REALLY
DO NEED TO GO GRAIN- OR GLUTEN-FREE? YEAH, WE OFFER A VARIETY OF GRAIN-FREE RECIPES
FOR BOTH DOGS AND CATS IN OUR GO. OKAY.
AND OUR NOW LINES. IN THE GO LINE, THE SENSITIVITY AND SHINE RECIPE IS FORMULATED ESPECIALLY
FOR PETS WITH SPECIFIC DIETARY NEEDS. AND THEY’RE CAREFULLY PREPARED WITH A SELECT MEAT
PROTEIN, UNIQUE CARBS AND ESSENTIAL OMEGA OILS.
OKAY, SO WHAT ABOUT… I LOVE ALL OF IT, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NOW LINE?
THE NOW FRESH RECIPES ARE PACKED WITH FRESH INGREDIENTS, WHOLESOME BERRIES, FRUITS AND
VEGETABLES. THEY’RE 100% GRAIN- AND GLUTEN-FREE AND THEY’RE SPECIFICALLY FORMULATED FOR SEPARATE
LIFE STAGE OF YOUR DOG AND CAT, AS WELL AS FOR THE DOG BREED SIZE. THEY’RE AVAILABLE
IN DRY RECIPES AND CONTAIN NO RENDERED MEAT MEAL ADDED BY-PRODUCTS OR ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES.
