Zero Meat Free Grain is a food that is absolutely free of grain and with 100% of its meat hydrolysed. It is not a normal “Grain Free” product, we are not just bringing our formulation closer to a pure carnivore diet, it is more than that. Thanks to its hydrolysis, we offer your dog maximum digestibility and what that means is the absolute use of the nutrients from meat. The main purpose of hydrolysing proteins is to break the protein structure in the diet enough to remove any allergen and any allergenic epitope, therefore avoiding immune recognition by the dogs that are already sensitised to intact chicken proteins. Through this we achieve responses of greater physiological acceptance of this food by dogs and the prevention of food hypersensitivity problems. A secondary objective is to break the proteins up to a point where there are no antigens capable of eliciting an immune response. This means that any hydrolysed diet from La Trufa has greater protein digestibility than that of the (natural) intact protein source. Therefore, the highly hydrolysed proteins are the ideal source of amino acids for maximum digestibility. In addition, the hydrolysates may play a role in preventing hypersensitivity in individuals at risk as well as treating already sensitised individuals which makes this food a suitable diet for all adult dogs, whether they are sensitised to the intake of grains and chicken, or not. In addition, the hydrolysate provides clear benefits for the treatment of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).
Dehydrated and hydrolysed chicken meat, dehydrated egg, chicken fat as an energy source, hydrolysed chicken liver and fish oil make up the list of meat ingredients of Zero Meat Grain Free. Both potatoes and peas have high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin, which ensure proper functioning and hydration of cartilage and can be classed as first class foods.
Zero Meat Grain Free is a product prepared with ingredients suitable for human consumption, to which we do not add any kind of artificial colourants nor preservatives, nor any other additives that may affect the short or long term health of your dog. This means that according to the breed of chicken chosen amongst those on the market at any given time, or the food that they have received, or the type of rice selected etc, after the manufacturing of the product, the colouration of the kibble can be affected from one batch to another, all without the formula or its properties ever being altered. As a consumer, it should not worry you. We have opted for this at La Trufa. We have prioritised the health of your dog, before the image of our product. Our job is to help get dogs and cats healthy.
