PRODUCTION: Our insect protein is sourced from The Netherlands. Except for insect protein, we only use EU-sourced plant based ingredients, with the exception of yucca schidigera which comprises 0,01% of our diet and is grown in California. We also produce our food in The Netherlands, in close proximity to the insect facility.
Our products are rich in protein from the insect black soldier fly; a high-quality protein source that is completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Read more about all the dog benefits and why your dog will love insects below.
HIGH QUALITY PROTEIN
Insects are incredibly nutrient-rich. They are an animal protein source, rich in the same essential nutrients that your pet would get from traditional meat. This means that insects contain all the protein and amino acids your dog needs to get energy and build muscles.
As a bonus, the black soldier fly larvae have high digestibility, which means that your pet can easily digest and absorb the valuable protein. On top of that, our amazing insects also provide essential fatty acids and minerals!
IMPROVED GUT HEALTH
Our diets contains healthy dietary fibers and prebiotics from natural sources, which has proven beneficial effects on the intestinal bacterial flora. Just like in humans, research has shown how a healthy intestinal flora in dogs and cats has positive effects on the body's well-being and general immune system.
Nutrients that feed the good bacteria in the gut are called prebiotics. Our feed contains several natural prebiotics, to give the good intestinal bacteria optimal conditions to thrive. Dietary fiber contributes with an increased feeling of satiety, a healthy movement of intestines and passage time of the feed. In our feed, among other ingredients, beetroot contributes with natural dietary fibre. This, in combination with our products being naturally gluten free, make them extra kind to the digestive system.
BASED ON RESEARCH
Our products are developed with veterinarians and nutritionists to ensure an optimal nutritional profile. All our recipes are based on the nutritional recommendations from FEDIAF, an organisation that regularly publish new guidelines for dog and cat nutrition based on the latest research. Our dental sticks are also developed with veterinary dental specialists to ensure a premium oral health product for your dog.
Our products are packed with nutrition from natural and carefully selected ingredients, and added vitamins and minerals. Insects is our only animal ingredient - the rest is plant based. Our insects are resistant to disease and grow quickly on their own. Thanks to this, our production is completely free of unwanted substances such as antibiotics and growth hormones.
You can choose climate-smart dog food by choosing products with insect protein. Insects are incredibly resource-efficient compared to traditional protein sources, which makes them a natural choice. Insects need less water and food, take up almost no space at all and cause less carbon dioxide emissions.
