Traditionally, dry pet foods required a significant concentration of grains and carbohydrate-rich ingredients to aid in the manufacturing of a crunchy kibble pet food. Natura challenged this tradition, and developed unique manufacturing processes to create the first-ever grain free, low carbohydrate dry pet food. We called it an evolution in healthful pet nutrition…and EVO became a brand. EVO foods were designed to closely resemble the ancestral diets of dogs and cats and offer a convenient and safe alternative to raw food diets and home preparation. When compared to other “grain-free” foods on the market that claim to have an ancestral feeding approach, many products continue to incorporate high levels of carbohydrate rich ingredients. There are two significant benefits to an EVO diet low in carbohydrates…maintaining healthy body weights in pets; and the management of diabetes mellitus.
