While many commercial pet food products are high in carbohydrates, each and every one of Acana’s pet food products is low in carbohydrates in keeping with the natural evolutionary diet of wild dogs. Additionally, Acana products are formulated in keeping with Whole Prey ratios. This includes more than just the muscle meat and tissue from animal proteins – it also includes organ meats for essential vitamins and minerals plus cartilage and raw bones for optimum calcium and phosphorus levels. By following a Whole Prey formula, Acana can provide for the complete nutritional needs of dogs without the use of synthetic vitamin and mineral supplements in their products. All of the nutrients in Acana pet food products are naturally present which means that they are more biologically valuable and easier for your dog’s body to digest and absorb.
In the spring of 2016, Acana released a new line of dry food products called Acana Regionals. The Regional line for dogs each includes four updated formulas including the following options: Meadowland, Wild Atlantic, Grasslands, and Appalachian Ranch. All Regionals formulas are protein-rich, made with fresh meats like free-run chicken, wild-caught fish, and nest-laid eggs. Each formula is designed to nourish the whole body of dogs, mimicking their natural evolutionary diet by being rich in animal proteins and fats but low in carbohydrates. Acana also offers the Singles line of updated recipes which are made with a limited number of ingredients for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities. These recipes include Lamb & Apple, Pork & Squash, Duck & Pear, and Mackerel & Greens.
