OUR UNIQUE SLOW-COOKING PROCESS
The quality begins with the ingredients: we select only the freshest natural ingredients with all of their nutritional value intact.
We cook the ingredients very slowly at low temperature, in its own juice and in limited production batches, to retain maximum nutritional quality and achieve exceptional digestibility.
Finally, we form the pellets into an appropriate size and shape for each breed of dog and cat and pack it with all its freshness intact.
30% Fresh meat
The use of fresh meats make an essential difference, as they ensure a higher biological value for the protein. They contain all essential amino acids and have a significantly higher rate of digestibility than that of other sources of protein.
All of our recipes in the Ultra range therefore include 30% fresh meat as the main ingredient. In other words, of all the ingredients used, a third is fresh meat.
We only use rice, barley, and oats in amounts of less than 15% of the total, and avoiding the use of other cereals, such as maize or wheat.
In addition, we always use wholegrain cereals, that provide more fibre, vitamins and minerals.
Thanks to our advanced technology, carbohydrates reach the precise point in cooking so that they can be easily processed by the animal's digestive enzymes, preventing digestive problems and decreasing stool size.
NO PRESERVATIVES, COLOURING, OR ARTIFICIAL ADDITIVES
Preservatives are used to extend the useful life of the product, thus facilitating their distribution and use. They therefore have a technical role, but do not provide nutritional benefits. At Ownat we have replaced artificial preservatives with natural alternatives, extracted from vegetable oils and plants.
Colourants have a purely aesthetic function, with no nutritional value. This is why we have completely eliminated them from Ownat formulations.
Our recipes do not include any additive that does not add nutritional or functional value to the product.
