· 20% vegetables, fruits and fine oils
· 0% grains, potato, rice, soja etc.
What ingredients are in our food and why have we chosen them? (Composition)
Fresh beef muscle meat
Dogs need proteins to build and maintain their organs and muscles and for their enzymes to function properly. Meat is a good source of protein because it contains all the essential amino acids in the right proportions and thus has a high biological quality. In addition, meat contains iron, zinc, selenium, and B vitamins.
Fresh beef heart
Fresh beef heart mainly consists of muscle, i.e. meat. It is very rich in protein without containing much fat. It provides high quality biotin and potassium.
Every B.A.R.F. recipe includes finely ground fresh breastbones. These contain important, natural calcium, iron, valuable fatty acids, and enzymes.
Fresh green beef tripe
Fresh green beef tripe is particularly high-quality because it contains the green plants already pre-digested by the cattle. The bacteria in the beef tripe have already broken down these plants and converted them into high-quality protein. It plays an important role in aiding digestion.
Freeze-dried beef liver
Freeze-dried beef liver is particularly nutritious because it contains a lot of iron and numerous vitamins (A, B 2, B 12, biotin, etc.). The gentle freeze drying process preserves heat-sensitive vitamins.
Fresh beef kidneys
Fresh beef kidneys are particularly rich in protein but contain little fat. They contain lots of sodium, vitamin B12, and biotin.
Fresh untreated apples
Fresh untreated apples straight from the farmer provide pectin, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and sodium.
Fresh untreated pears
Fresh untreated pears straight from the farmer contain vitamin C and B vitamins, as well as lots of potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and iodine.
Beetroots and carrots
Beetroots and carrots supply many vitamins and minerals (especially potassium). The saponins and flavonoids they contain stimulate appetite and aid digestion.
High-quality cold-pressed sunflower oil is a source of vitamin E, linolenic acid, and alpha-linolenic acid, as well as essential fatty acids.
Blueberries are primarily a source of manganese and copper, but also contain vitamin C, carotene, iron, potassium, sodium, B vitamins, and anthocyanins.
Cod liver oil
Cod liver oil is primarily a source of vitamin D, but also contains a high proportion of vitamins A and E and is rich in iodine and omega-3 fatty acids.
Salmon oil provides essential fatty acids and provides a balanced ratio of omega-6 to omega-3.
Algal lime and seaweed meal
Algal lime and seaweed meal are important sources of minerals (magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and iodine).
Don’t soak FRESCO dry raw food into water, but always ensure plenty of fresh water is available.
FRESCO Dry Raw contains approximately 535 kcal/100g. We recommend for normal castrated dogs (no matter male or female) per day:
· adult dogs: approx. 1% of the body weight.
· small breeds (up to 15 kg): approx. 1,5% of the body weight.
· Puppies, young dogs and lactating dogs: approx. 4-6 % of the body weight.
Important: From our energy rich dry raw food, which contains no poor digestible fillers, like grain, rice, potatoes etc. your dog needs only half the amount of a normal premium dog food like (Wolfsblut, Real Nature or Eukanuba). It is therefore perfectly normal that your dog only defecates half the amount, as your dog can digest our food more completely.
Overweight caused by extensive energy consumption without enough movement is the main reason for illness. We recommend to control and observe your dog´s weight continuously. In particular you should calculate the calorie intake from additional snacks and treats.
