TROVET Hypoallergenic (Insect) | IPD for dogs

01-12-2016

TROVET introduces the canned food variant of Hypoallergenic (Insect) | IPD.  This unique dietary food, based on insect protein, is a sustainable product for dogs with food hypersensitivity.

Food hypersensitivity is a major cause of gastrointestinal and skin problems in dogs. The majority is caused by animal protein. By offering a new protein sources, a hypersensitivity reaction may be prevented. In Hypoallergenic (Insect) Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae are the protein source. The use of insects as a protein source in products for animal consumption is still very limited. This makes the chance very small that a dog has already developed an allergy. By using potato as a carbohydrate source, Hypoallergenic (Insect) is grain free.

Another reason for the processing of insects in (animal) food is the ever growing global demand for protein and the decreasing amount of available farmland. Because of this, alternative sources of protein have to be found. Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae naturally live together in great numbers and are able to consume a large variety of organic products. This makes BSF larvae the ideal insect for large scale conversion of (low quality) plant material to (high quality) animal protein and oil products

Hypoallergenic (Insect) is available in 3 kg and 10 kg packaging and now also in 400g can.
