People’s view of healthy eating has changed a lot over the years. There was a time when people were content to get a lot of their nutrition from additives and enriched ingredients. Preprocessed food wasn’t simply popular, it was the norm. But time has shown that this isn’t the best way to eat. People have been getting a lot of reminders about how important fresh and natural ingredients really are. But it’s only recently that people have realized the same is true about the foods they’re giving their pets. The Daily Herald noted all this and more as they talked with various people involved with the production and distribution of high quality pet food. This shouldn’t be seen as a niche trend either. Companies are rising up to meet increased demand for healthy pet food. One recent example of this can be found with the high quality dog food brand Beneful. As the Daily Herald noted, dogs love the taste of fresh food as much as people do. And in many ways the tastes of humans and dogs aren’t that different. That’s why Beneful has put so much work into creating dog food blends which really do seem as if they could sit happily on any human’s dinner plate. Beneful has put focus on two types of dog food and have both wet and dry versions of most of their flavors. Both are also made under the company’s guiding philosophy that dog food should only be made with the freshest ingredients. Both the wet and dry flavors of Beneful’s dog food plainly shows just how important that is. Looking at either will show the actual ingredients within the food. And it’s also easy to see that the dog food is deriving flavor from those natural ingredients rather than artificial flavoring agents. The future looks bright for man’s best friend. But in addition to that it’s also becoming more common for dog foods to specialize in special blends of natural foods that are designed on Petco for a senior’s unique needs.
