Yeast is an incredible superfood, please check out this blog we recently published to learn more!

The yeast in our food is completely different from yeast that causes infections and buildups. Candida family yeast causes infections and Saccharomyces yeasts are used in food - our yeast is Saccharomyces cerevisiae, one of the most common food yeasts in the world.

Protein is a vital nutrient, essential for your dog’s health. Dogs require 10 essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein. These amino acids are found in animal meat, plants, and in our star ingredient — yeast, which is taxonomically closer to animals than plants.

The dried yeast we are using is an Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) approved pet food ingredient: 91.6 (IFN 7-05-533: Yeast, dried) and, through decades of study and use, is classified as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
