While carbohydrates are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes, conventional dog and cat foods often exceed 50% carbohydrates.

Even worse, most dog and cat foods feature fast carbs, such as rice, potato, tapioca, and starches that digest quickly and can cause blood glucose to spike and fat storage to increase — factors associated with obesity and diabetes.

Free of gluten, potato, tapioca, and starch ingredients, ACANA features farm-fresh vegetables and fruit, such as whole pumpkin and butternut squash, that enter the blood stream slowly, promoting stable blood-sugar levels and reducing the potential for fat storage.
