ACANA's Heritage Meats formula is a grain-free, protein-packed recipe loaded with over 60% of traditional heritage meat! One of ACANA's proudest recipes, this biologically appropriate mix includes an unmatched variety of regional heritage meat ingredients including Angus beef, Yorkshire pork and grass-fed Kentucky lamb. All ingredients are raised on local Kentucky ranches by farmers ACANA knows and trusts. All meats are deemed fit for human consumption before arriving fresh and whole to ACANA's Kentucky DogStar Kitchens. Staying true to your dog's evolutionary diet, ACANA formulas feature WholePrey ratios in order to mimic the diet mother nature intend so your dog can maintain optimum weight and peak health. By using the whole animal, including organs and cartilage, your dog will get all the necessary nutrients naturally and completely. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; while bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phophorus. Glucosamine and chondroitin are derived naturally from high quality meat ingredients, not synthetics. A fresh assortment of fruits and vegetables are brought in from neighboring farms to provide a tasty and natural source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids necessary to keep dogs of all breeds and ages in peak physical health.
Your dog may not roam the wilderness like their ancestors did, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't feed them like they don't. ACANA makes only foods that are rich in meat and protein variety, with wholeprey meat ratios and limited carbohydrates, replacing fast carbs with low glycemic, healthy fruits and vegetables. With a state of art brand new kitchen in Kentucky, all ACANA foods are sourced and made right here in the USA by trusted farmers. With human grade ingredients that typically arrive at the kitchens within 48 hours of harvesting, fresh is the entire basis of ACANA's brand. Ingredients like heritage red meats from the Appalachian ranching country, free run poultry and eggs, wild caught fish from New England, whole fruits and vegetables like Bartlett pears and butternut squash, and locally grown botanicals from Kentucky, ACANA believes the healthiest foods are made here at home in Kentucky, never outsourced. ACANA nourishes your pet's instinct for real, fresh meats and high quality grain-free carbohydrates. It's everything Mother Nature intended, and nothing she did not.
