Is your dog food fake food?

Is your dog food fake food?

Have you ever thought why more and more dogs are suffering diseases that humans face? This is because more and more people are buying dogs processed food, just like how humans are eating too much processed food!

Let us take a look into dog's most common food: KIBBLES!

HOW ARE KIBBLES MADE?

Manufacturing process of kibble

 

Usually to start off with, factories first heat up grains and meat meals. Then, the factories will combine other raw ingredients with the heated meat meals and grains and then REHEAT it again. Once they are heated, they are placed in the extruder, where it is heated again and then finally, will be placed in the drying oven to be reheated again! Basically, your dog's kibbles are reheated FOUR times before they are ready for packaging.

Why does this matter?

This heating process destroys the nutrients in each of these ingredients. You can have the most premium kibble or the lowest quality kibbles, the process stays quite similar and the loss of nutrients are a BIG problem.

Depending on the type of mineral, the loss percentage will slithly differ. Estimated loss of nutrients by the heating process:

Basically on average, kibbles will destroy half of the nutrients from the raw ingredients listed in the bag. 

Does this actually affect your dog? Of course! It has been scientifically proven that dogs that are nutrient-deficient will not be able to live long without health complications. How do manufacturers "solve" this issue? Kibbles manufacturers tend to put tons of synthethic vitamins inside the food to help combat the loss of nutrients. However, synthethic vitamins DO NOT operate the same way as real vitamins. Synthethic vitamins are just chemical isolates that are usually made in a lab in China and does not carry the same nutritional benefit as REAL vitamin.

OUR SOLUTION

There are tons of solutions to ensure that your dog is nutritionally sufficient. If by any chance, the only thing that you can feed is still kibble, choose kibbles that contain the best ingredient with a high percentage of protein. While lots of nutrients might still be lost in the process, the high quality ingredient can still ensure that you are getting the most out of the kibble. If eliminating kibble is possible, DO IT! Food such as home cooked food, raw diets, freeze dried food or dehydrated foods are all made so that they are rich in nutrients. 

Supplements are also a great way to ensure that your pet's body is getting the nutrients that it might need. Our Kin+Kind supplement derives their nutrients and vitamins from REAL superfood. This means that the vitamins received from our supplement are not synthethic! Our Adored Beast pre and pro-biotics also ensure that your pet's gut is able to absorb as much nutrients as possible from ANY food that they are consuming.
