ACANA Grasslands rich inclusions of meat, fish and game mirror the evolutionary diet and promote peak health without the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients.
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate ‘three meat questions’:
- How much meat?: Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Grasslands is loaded with 70% meat, game and fish — more than twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods. Plus, all our meat is deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
- How much fresh meat?: 1/2 of the meats, game and fish in ACANA Grasslands is FRESH or RAW, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats, while our raw meats are flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing animal protein and fat.
- How many meats?: ACANA Grasslands features 5 fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
Supplements: In Mother Nature’s kitchen there are no supplements, and dogs and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney & tripe supply vitamins & minerals; while bones & cartilage deliver calcium & phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our Meat Math and incorporating WholePrey™meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated source of the nutrients your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of additives. That’s why zinc is our only added supplement.
