We hear the word “organic” thrown around a lot these days, but is organic pet foodreally better for our pets? Consider the following:
- Most commercial pet foods contain a high concentration of grains which are not good for our pet’s digestive system. Our pet’s intestine is not designed to digest grain proteins.
- The “meat” listed as an ingredient may actually be meat by-products, discarded by slaughterhouses and deemed unfit for human consumption. How disgusting is that?!
Newman’s Own Organic pet foods do not contain: artificial colors, flavoring agents, preservatives, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or chemicals.
They do contain natural chicken and the following organically grown ingredients: soy meal, brown rice, barley, peas, oats, carrots and sorghum.
But does it taste good? Here’s what the Review Crew had to say about the kibble, canned food and treats:
Joey (Lab/12 years): “I love it. I love all of it. The dry food, the canned food, the treats, it makes absolutely no difference. I truly love it and I’m ready for more.” Joey dripped the most drool over the Peanut Butter Treats and the Beef canned food.
Shakespeare (Great Dane/18 months): “For the nanosecond that I allow the food to touch my tongue before inhaling it, my taste buds are tickled pink.” Shake went especially nuts for the New Zealand Ranch Style Treats and the Chicken and Brown Rice canned food.
Buddha (Cat/4 years): “I’m pretty laid back and enjoy variety but if I had to pick my favorites they would be the Adult Cat Formula Dry Food and the Beef & Liver canned food. P.S. I work hard for the Secret Shopper and feel that a raise in my treat allotment is overdue.”
Indy (Cat/4 years): “I am a princess who only likes to be touched by Mom and Dad, demands constant attention, has been unfairly labeled as neurotic and will only eat one brand of canned food. No offense Nell, that’s just how I am. I did, however, find the dry food delightful”
Braveheart (Cat/9 years): “I was deeply touched by Nell’s story of why her dad got involved in the cat food business; to assuage his guilt for starring in a film with the unfortunate title, ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.’ Between the story and the flavor, the Adult Formula dry food is my favorite, paws-down. Ya’ll can call me ‘Big Daddy!'”
All of the after-tax profits from the royalties from Newman’s Own and Newman’s Own Organics are donated to educational and charitable organizations. So far they have donated nearly $250 million. What a great company!
