Dear Dog Enthusiast,

Over the years one question we have received repeatedly from caring pet parents is, “why does Best Breed not have a grain free formula?” The simple answer is we have not felt comfortable with many of the non-grain ingredients being used in grain-free pet food formulas. I have felt, and still feel, that healthy grains, when used as part of a complete and balanced formula, are much better for pets than high glycemic ingredients like tapioca and potatoes.

Tapioca and potatoes are high (relative to legumes) on the glycemic index and when used in excessive amounts can cause spikes in pets’ blood sugar and insulin levels, potentially resulting in long-term health issues. Low-glycemic foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, helping promote long-term health benefits.

After years of research and careful consideration, we have now developed grain free formulas with ingredients such as green peas, chick peas, ground flax seed and other fruits and vegetables, all of which are lower (relative to potatoes and tapioca) on the glycemic index and help promote sustainable energy.

Lastly, like all of our diets, the Grain Free Chicken with Fruits and Vegetables recipe is formulated without low-grade ingredients that are harder for your dog to digest and may be harmful to his health. Some of these ingredients include animal by-product meal, cheap fillers, any sort of gluten (e.g., corn gluten), and artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors.
