Our Boreal Diet Proper Chicken Meal is a good grain food using chicken as a new source of unique protein. It is a daily diet that can be used to help maintain the weight of your cat and can also be used as a hypoallergenic preparation.
We believe that pet foods should avoid starchy ingredients that might lead to weight gain and obesity. An alternative is a ‘good’ grain free diet that avoids the high sugar grains such as corn or wheat. There are particular grains such as steel cut oats that are very good for your cat and have many beneficial properties. That’s why we at Boréal have developed a line called Boréal Proper Cat Food.
Low glycemic index steel cut oats & barley from Ontario’s Central Mennonite farming region are fantastic ingredients, along with low glycemic peas and white beans. Proper grains are low carb grains plus steel cut oats and barley are a great value and are grown locally. Ontario oats and barley provide a rich source of vitamins, minerals, low glycemic carbohydrates, essential oils, fiber and proteins.
We use a base of beans and peas to replace the grains found in many dog foods, and we also add many beneficial herbs and fruits including blueberries and cranberries, thereby improving the taste of food as well add antioxidants with several health benefits.
Our Boréal Cat Foods use Availa®Pet – a special collection of minerals bound to amino acids to make the minerals ‘bio-available’. The organic zinc in Availa®Pet easily absorbed and is many times more available to a cat than other zinc sources. Zinc is essential for healthy skin & coat.
