Why not kibble?
Most consumers do not know how kibble is made and not to mention visiting a pet food manufacturing plant. To produce a kibble, we need a mixture of different proteins, plants and animals, fats and more importantly, a mixture of sticky carbohydrates to stick different ingredients together. To enhance the shelf life, some pet food companies will add preservative such as BHA and BHT in which is carcinogens. Some companies may even add animal fat spayed on top of the kibble to increase palatability. After adding these ingredients, it is being compressed by machine and create the shape we call it kibble. These kibble is very energy dense which may lead to obesity, heart diseases and even cancer. We as pet parents consider our pets as our family members, will you still be able to feed kibble to your dogs when you know the truth? We are having Fresh Food Every day, Its time to rethink what to give for your pets!

What is AAFCO?
The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) is a voluntary membership association of local, state and federal agencies charged by law to regulate the sale and distribution of animal feeds and animal drug remedies.
Nufresh Fresh Diet meets AAFCO requirements with 100% human grade ingredients.
Why NuFresh Prescription diet do not meet AAFCO requirement?
NuFresh Prescription diet is only for dogs who are suffering chronic diseases but not for healthy dog to consume. For instance, the fat level of cancer diet is very high and the carbohydrates level is very low. Since there is preliminary evidence showing that reducing the carbohydrates level will slow the cancer cell activities. So the Nufresh Prescription diet do not meet AAFCO requirement since it is specifically design for the dogs who are suffering chronic disease.
