Spring Naturals Receives Low Glycemic Certification

Spring Naturals Whole Grain and Grain Free Dry Dinners are now certified low glycemic and diabetic friendly by the Glycemic Research Institute.

The super-premium brand is the only made in the USA dog kibble to receive this accreditation, due to the company’s philosophy of using only real meat, poultry or fish as the first protein source rather than rendered meals, according to the company.

Foods formulated with low glycemic ingredients are digested slower than high glycemic foods, allowing the body to absorb all the nutrients. When food is digested slower and the nutrients are properly absorbed, pets will remain fuller longer which helps maintain weight control, whereas dog foods with a high glycemic index elevate blood glucose levels, which can increase the risk of epilepsy, hypothyroidism, allergies, yeast infections, cancer and diabetes, the company said.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about achieving this certification,” said Rob Cadenhead, vice president of sales and marketing at Spring Naturals. “Now consumers know just how healthy our dinners are and that we are dedicated to providing the best nutrition for their beloved pets.”

Spring Naturals is a fresh, family of nutritionally balanced dinners and treats for pets. Each carefully formulated recipe is based on the company’s whole food philosophy which emphasizes a healthy combination of real meat, whole fruits and whole vegetables, without rendered meals and starchy, high-glycemic ingredients. Made by a family-owned company in the USA, Spring Naturals offers Whole Grain and Grain Free dinner and treat options for dogs, and a Grain Free cat line is also available.
