To PurchaseHonest Kitchen Dog Food - Click Here Optimum dog nutrition should come from minimally processed real foods, with the wholesome goodness equivalent to something you might prepare in your own kitchen but also resembles a dog’s true natural diet. It’s been gently dried to preserve all the nutrition of the raw, human grade, ingredients.
As I’ve stressed elsewhere, dogs’ digestive systems are not designed to assimilate ingredients that have been grossly over processed with high heat and pressure, or by-products that we’d never ever consider eating if it was used in our food.
Dehydration or drying, on the other hand, is one of the gentlest methods of food preservation. Food dehydration works by removing only the water content from the ingredients. All nutrients remain, and become highly concentrated. Each whole food ingredient is actually visible in the Honest Kitchen blends, not pulverized beyond recognition. So as you can see, the most obvious visual difference between Honest Kitchen dogfood and canned or extruded diets which are the result of conventional petfood processing, is the vibrant colors of the ingredients that remain intact in the actual food you serve your dog.
The Honest Kitchen does not accept ‘animal-feed-grade’ ingredients onto its premises, and produces many of the same foods you actually eat yourself. They really are absolutely human food grade.
Because nutritional variety is best for optimum health, the addition of extra meat (and other ingredients if you wish) is recommended. But it’s by no means essential. Honest Kitchen food products can be used alone. They’re nutritionally complete in themselves. Honest Kitchen foods are low in fat and protein, which is great for older and less active dogs. Younger and more active dogs, though, can certainly benefit from some added meat and/bones.
Whether dogs should eat grains is contentious. Many grains are rich sources of essential amino acids, which are not found readily in fruits and vegetables. Indeed, some soaked grains actually bear a close resemblance to the intestinal contents of a wild dog’s prey. Wheat, corn, soy, rice, and beet pulp are common allergens for dogs, but organic rolled barley, oats and rye and very well tolerated and a great source of amino acids for your dog.
Honest Kitchen believes the diet fed should be the one that best suits the individual animal and that if a dog can tolerate grains, it is fine to include them. If not, Honest Kitchen has scrumptious grain-free alternatives.
How does this sound? Human grade chicken or turkey, organic flaxseed, potatoes, celery, cabbage, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, zucchini, green beans, coconut, sesame seeds, apples, honey, alfalfa, kelp, yogurt, bananas, papayas, cranberries, basil, garlic, and rosemary. Sounds good enough to eat, doesn’t it?
Honest Kitchen is a unique new approach to canine nutrition. Delicious, nutritious, colorful meals made with real, recognizable ingredients, that are ready to prepare and serve at home. Just add some warm water and let stand for at least ten minutes.
The key is to source fresh, unprocessed, chemical-free ingredients, that work best for your dog.
