PetFlour Quinoa: the perfect addition to a dog's diet

Quinoa is a highly nutritious edible seed native to South America, where it has been a prominent food source for 6000 years.

Coined as a superfood, quinoa provides a wide array of essential nutrients to both humans and animals. When heated the super food is safe for dogs to eat and considered as a very healthy addition to their diets.

Limagrain Ingredients launches a heat-treated quinoa flour product specially for dog food.

Our new PetFlour Quinoa is a great innovative launch to meet a rising market demand for higher nutritional benefits for dog food.

It is considered a healthy alternative to wheat flour since it has so many essential nutrients. Quinoa is one of the best non-animal food sources of complete protein, meaning that it contains all nine essential amino acids. It’s also a fantastic source of fiber, B vitamins, and iron.

Besides all that, it is considered as a sustainable option as the quinoa is sourced locally in the Netherlands and Belgium.
