Our Nutritional Transparency

Understanding the Nutritional Value of a Raw Dog Food Diet

In recent years we’ve all started to take a lot more notice of where our food comes from and how it’s grown and reared. Because of this, more and more dedicated dog lovers are starting to take the same interest in the provenance of their pets’ food — and, just as importantly, how it’s treated.
Under the Food, Drugs, and Cosmetics Act (FD&CA), the US applies the same standards and provisions to pet food as human food. This is reassuring on one level, yet it also means that commercial pet food manufacturers use some heavy-handed industrial processes, to meet these requirements and improve the shelf-life of their products.
High-temperature cooking and high-pressure pasteurization (HPP) are two of the most popular methods for achieving these aims. However, when producing animal foodstuffs such as kibble, even the high-quality and organic ingredients advertised on the bag will have most of their natural nutrients, beneficial enzymes, and probiotics destroyed by these intense processes.  
Equally disconcerting, the three countries that import the most pet food into the US: China, Thailand, and Canada, all have unregulated pet food industries with no similar standards or safeguards for quality, traceability, processing, or safety.
Aside from the organic kelp grown and harvested by specialists in Nova Scotia, every ingredient in Albright’s Raw Dog Food diet range is derived from traceable, sustainable sources within the US. In every instance, we use fresh, high-quality, human-grade ingredients sourced as closely as possible to our base in Indiana.

Good Nutrition Is the Foundation of Health

It’s an often overlooked fact that everything we put in our bodies is either beneficial or detrimental, and the same applies to our pets. Ensuring we get the greatest possible nutritional value from everything we eat is a healthy and efficient way to live, and that’s where eating raw comes into its own.
Water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C and B-complexes, are particularly susceptible to being lost during the cooking process. Heating food also destroys valuable enzymes that aid digestion and boost the immune system. 
When you feed your pet a complete and balanced raw dog food, nutrition is maximized as every ingredient retains its natural goodness. So you know your dog is getting the benefits from their diet as nature always intended.
