BOREAL Dog Food - PROPER LARGE BREED Red Meat
- Low Glycemic Healthy Grains - Oats and Barley
- Low Carb Canadian Peas and Beans
- Organic Zinc for Healthy Skin and Coat
Using primarily Canadian ingredient sources, Boréal dog foods will allow you to control the protein and carb sources you feed and help keep weight off and your dog’s energy levels where they belong. Most of our foods use a single source protein, and we lean heavily on peas and beans to keep our foods healthy. We have added an antioxidant and a probiotic package to our blends to cover not only taste, but digestion and health concerns.
We are trying to reduce the wrong kind of carbohydrates and really focus in on low GI – glycemic index – starches. By basing our foods on low GI foods like peas, beans and single protein meat sources we think your pet will feel full longer after they eat and the diet will help keep blood sugar levels from fluctuating. Add in the right amount of exercise and we think this is a smart way to feed your pets.
We add Availa®Pet, an easily absorbed trace mineral package containing zinc, iron and manganese to all our pet foods for important health benefits.
PROPER LARGE BREED RED MEAT - LOW CARB GRAINS
Large Breed Red Meat Proper is based on lamb meal with a low glycemic base of pea and beans. Our large breed formulas all keep to a moderate protein level and have added glucosamine, Omega-6 and Availa®Pet minerals to support the dietary needs of large breed dogs. We believe that pet foods should avoid starchy ingredients that might lead to weight gain and obesity. An alternative to a grain free diet is to pick a dog food that avoids the high sugar grains such as corn or wheat. There are particular grains such as steel cut oats that are very good for your dog and have many beneficial properties. That’s why we at Boréal have developed a line called Boréal proper dog food.
Low glycemic index steel cut oats & barley from Ontario’s Central Mennonite farming region are fantastic ingredients, along with low glycemic peas and white beans. Proper grains are low carb grains plus steel cut oats and barley are a great value and are grown locally. Ontario oats and barley provide a rich source of vitamins, minerals, low glycemic carbohydrates, essential oils, fiber and proteins.
We use a single source of meat protein in our Proper Dog Foods to assist in digestibility and allergy issues. These foods are naturally persevered and are potato, wheat and corn free.
Our Boreal Proper Dog Foods also contains Availa®Zn organic zinc. Availa®Zn is easily absorbed and is 200 x more available to a dog than other zinc sources. Up to 66% of dog breeds, including most northern breeds like Huskies, benefit from feeding zinc. Zinc is essential for healthy skin & coat.
