Spring Naturals Foods Gets Low-Glycemic Certification


Spring Naturals Whole Grain and Grain Free Dry Dinners have been certified Low Gylcemic and Diabetic Friendly by the Glycemic Research Institute. The Glycemic Research Institute is an internationally accredited testing and certification organization.
Spring Naturals received this accreditation based on the company's philosophy of using only real meat, poultry or fish as the number-one protein source, rather than rendered meals, which require a binding agent that is high in simple carbohydrates and starches to hold kibble together. Simple carbohydrates convert rapidly into glucose, and a diet full of carbs and starches can be unhealthy for pets, the company said, because the higher the carbs, the higher the glycemic index.
Spring Naturals does not use meals in its dry dinners, and the recipes are free of high-carbohydrate binding agents such as wheat, soy, tapioca, white and brown rice, and potato starch.
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.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled about achieving this certification. Now consumers know just how healthy our dinners are and that we are dedicated to providing the best nutrition for their beloved pets,” said Rob Cadenhead, vice president of sales and marketing at Spring Naturals.
