Dog food with insect protein
We are happy to introduce our insect-based dog foods; Naturgut-Schmaus (Natural Feast), Landgut-Schmaus (Farm Feast) and Landgut-Menu (Farm Menu). We put a lot of care and our experience from the last 25 years, into the development. The result is very impressive and will no doubt also delight your dog.
Why we chose insect proteins
These days, factory farming is one of the biggest problems for the environment. And the problems will increase further in the next few decades because of global population growth. In addition to the high consumption of resources, the use of antibiotics in farming is also a problem. Insect-based dog food provides the perfect alternative here. The insects used do not become sick so no antibiotics need to be used for breeding. Furthermore, production needs significantly fewer resources. Also, in comparison, production uses 10% of the energy that is required for cattle breeding, for the same amount of proteins.
The black soldier fly, larvae (lat. Hermetia Illucens) are used as a protein source for our Naturgut-Schmaus (Natural Feast), Landgut-Schmaus (Farm Feast) and Landgut-Menu (Farm Menu). These contain complete nutrients already 10 days after hatching and are then ready for further processing. The waste from production is used as a natural fertilizer.
The most important benefits for your dog
Our Bellfor dog food with insect protein benefits not only the environment. It has great benefits for your dog too. It represents a healthy and wholesome food source. Our Naturgut-Schmaus (Natural Feast), Landgut-Schmaus (Farm Feast) and Landgut-Menu (Farm Menu) are characterized, among others, by the following properties:
- High digestibility
- Grain-free dog food
- Contain only natural ingredients
- Non allergenic
The proteins in our insect-based Bellfor dog food are easily digested. Their biological value is around 85 percent.
Just like our other product Farm Feast, the dog food with Insect protein varieties do not use any grain. This is of additional benefit for your dog’s health. Grain-free dog food ensures a more balanced blood sugar level. This will benefit both their health and well-being.
