Potato ingredients are the most important source of plant-based ingredients for pet food. All ingredients are derived from such processes as manufacture of French fries, crisps, potato flakes and potato starch. Potato is GMO free and does not contain gluten, making it suitable for grain-free diets.
Carrots are a very important plant-based ingredient to use in pet food, providing vitamins, minerals and fibre. Carrots are a healthy and natural ingredient for pet food.
Chicory ingredients for use in pet food are based on co-products from Inulin production. Co-products from the chicory root contain Inulin and fibres and have many health benefits.
Beet fibre is a co-product from sugar production. It is a high quality, fibre rich ingredient with a constant composition.
