Proper Chicken Meal is an all-breed diet based on chicken meal with a low glycemic base of pea and beans. We believe that pet foods should avoid starchy ingredients that might lead to weight gain and obesity. An alternative is a ‘good’ grain free diet that avoids the high sugar grains such as corn or wheat. There are particular grains such as steel cut oats that are very good for your dog and have many beneficial properties. That’s why we at Boréal have developed a line called Boréal Proper Dog Food.
Low glycemic index steel cut oats & barley from Ontario’s Central Mennonite farming region are fantastic ingredients, along with low glycemic peas and white beans. Proper grains are low carb grains plus steel cut oats and barley are a great value and are grown locally. Ontario oats and barley provide a rich source of vitamins, minerals, low glycemic carbohydrates, essential oils, fiber and proteins.
We use a single source of meat protein in our Proper Dog Foods to assist in digestibility and allergy issues. These foods are naturally persevered and are potato, wheat and corn free.
Our Boréal Dog Foods use Availa®Pet – a special collection of minerals bound to amino acids to make the minerals ‘bio-available’. The organic zinc in Availa®Pet easily absorbed and is many times more available to a dog than other zinc sources. Zinc is essential for healthy skin & coat.
