Insect-based dog food ingredients - puppy
Our puppy food covers all the nutritional requirements a puppy has to grow and be happy and healthy. The puppy food is also suitable for growing and nursing dogs. The complete dog food contains carefully balanced levels of minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and amino acids to provide all the nutrients and energy your pup needs.
We recommend that the puppy eats our puppy food until it is fully grown (approximately 1 year old depending on breed) and then switches to our complete food for adult dogs.
Our puppy food are rich in protein from the insect black soldier fly; a high-quality, hypoallergenic 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 here.

Ingredient for ingredient
Insects: Comprehensive source of amino acids and the sole protein source of the diet. Insects are a novel protein source for many canines, meaning that this diet is ideal for dogs with both known and suspected dietary sensitivities, and may help to reduce the incidence of adverse food reactions.
Oats: Important source of dietary carbohydrate and soluble fibre; wheat-free and hence useful for pets with a known/suspected gluten sensitivity.
Corn: Highly digestible source of carbohydrate and therefore providing energy, as well as providing a source of essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, protein and natural antioxidants.
Peas: An important source of both protein and starch, contributing to energy levels. Also contain vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium and magnesium.
Potato: Valuable source of complex carbohydrates and dietary fibre, thereby contributing to energy and gastrointestinal health. Also a source of Vitamin C.
Olive oil: An important contributor to the essential fatty acid (EFA) profile of the diet; EFA roles include maintenance of membrane fluidity in the body; hormonal and immune precursors, and skin and haircoat health.
Brewer's yeast: Rich in B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, and B9) and antioxidants, brewer’s yeast promotes multiple health functions including skin and haircoat condition; this ingredient also supports a healthy intestinal flora via its action as an important source of dietary fibre.
Minerals: Macrominerals and trace elements that are essential in the diet for the maintenance of health; optimised for the life stage.
Seaweed: An important source of some minerals and trace elements, (such as Calcium Magnesium, Iodine), as well as a source of Vitamin (B12).
DHA-algae: Promotes optimal brain, nerve and eye development in the puppy, through providing a fatty acid called DHA.
Tomato: Suppliers of natural vitamins and antioxidants; important for maintaining a healthy immune system.
Linseed oil: An important contributor to the essential fatty acid (EFA) profile of the diet (including Arachidonic Acid); EFA roles include maintenance of membrane fluidity in the body; hormonal and immune precursors, and skin and haircoat health.
Inulin: Provides a source of FOS or fructooligosaccharides, a prebiotic that help to stimulate growth of beneficial gastrointestinal bacteria, thereby contributing to optimal gut health.
Beetroot: An important source of insoluble dietary fibre, to promote large intestinal health.
Carrot: Rich in vitamin B6, A and K as well as potassium and biotin. Supports a healthy mmune system and quality condition of skin and haircoat.
Kale: A natural source of iron, antioxidants, and vitamins; to support immune function and red blood cell health.
Parsley: A natural source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K and antioxidants, to support healthy immune function.
Yucca schidigera: Helps to reduce faecal odour via plant saponins that stabilise large intestinal fermentation and aid in reducing ammonia production.
