We believe that animal feed should avoid starchy ingredients that can lead to weight gain and obesity. An alternative to a grain-free diet is to choose a dog food that does not contain high-sugar grains such as corn and wheat. Some grains, such as split oats, are excellent for your dog and contain many beneficial properties. That's why, at Boreal, we have developed a range of dog food called Boreal Proper.
The low glycemic index of blunt oats and barley in the Central Ontario Menenonite farming area and the very low glycemic index of peas and white beans make it a fantastic ingredient. The grains selected for Proper feed have a low glycemic index. In addition, barley oats and barley are grown locally and have good value for the money. Ontario's oats and barley are an important source of vitamins, minerals, low-glycemic carbohydrates, essential oils, fiber and protein.
We use a unique meat protein source in our Proper Dog Foods to facilitate digestion and reduce the risk of allergies. These foods are preserved naturally and are free of potatoes, wheat and corn.
