Why is protein in dog food so important?Protein is just as important for dogs as it is for humans. They are energy-giving nutrients and consist of various amino acids that are part of the body's cells, enzymes, hormones, etc. They, therefore, help supply the body with the important "building blocks" it needs. Some amino acids the dog can form on its own, but he must get those he cannot form through a diet with the right proteins in it. If the body does not get sufficient amino acids the body cannot function optimally which can result in a compromised immune system. The dog's amino acid needs are best met by animal proteins and depend on the dog's age, activity level and health.
Is dog food with single protein an advantage for your dog?If you choose a variant such as Adult lamb, you get dog food with only one protein source, in this case, lamb. This type of dog food is called Single Protein. The advantages for your dog are if he has food allergies or problems with digestion. The dog still needs protein, so the protein source is not completely cut off but it is easier for the stomach to digest. Single Protein dog food still has a good taste, vitamins and important amino acids.
Manufacturing process for Naturea dog food
Naturea Naturals, which is a range of dry food, is made from freshly deboned fish or meat. These proteins are therefore never frozen before the foodis produced. If the meat is not frozen before production, vitamins and amino acids are retained that would normally be lost during freezing.
With this manufacturing process, Naturea guarantees that the dog food retains good taste, freshness and high nutritional properties that meet your dog's metabolism.
Why is it important to avoid GMOs?GMO stands for genetically modified organisms that have had their genes altered through genetic engineering. For example, GMOs have been modified with a gene from another organism that is completely unrelated to the GMO. Crops that are genetically modified can have toxic or allergic effects and cause nutritional imbalances.
When dog food is GMO-free, it means that the meat used for the production of the food is from animals that are not fed with genetically modified food. Experiments have shown changes in the liver and kidneys of animals that are fed genetically modified plants.
