Why Transparency in Pet Food Is Good for Your Best Friend

Dig this… a portion of this post is sponsored, but opinions are my own and 110% “pawthentic”!

We all want to give our pets the very best – and that’s especially true when it comes to their food. After all, “you are what you eat” applies just as much to our furry family members as it does to us. Today, pet parents want the same qualities in pet food that they want in their own meals, such as familiar, whole food ingredients, sustainability, and nutrition.

An article from PetFoodIndustry.com backs this up, noting that, “The (human) food industry is centering on minimally processed and more natural foods, and we expect to see similar trends for pet food.” In addition, they point out that, “Clean labels are a huge trend in human nutrition, with consumers demanding ingredients with which they are familiar. Consumers want to make sure they feed their pets the most nutritious ingredients possible without any extras that aren’t needed.”

I couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing worse than reading an ingredients label and finding that I can’t even pronounce half the things listed!

But is it really necessary to choose a pet food made with ingredients fit for humans? Aren’t chicken by-products good enough? This video, from the new Humankind pet food, does a great job explaining the many benefits of choosing minimally processed, human-grade food for your pet:

Humankind is truly walking the walk when it comes to making the highest quality food and whole food nutrition for pets. It’s a 100% human-quality food made with real, minimally processed, nutrient-dense ingredients to help them live long and healthy lives. Not only that, but it’s held to the highest-quality ingredients and production standards for human food as set by the FDA, meaning that if it’s not fit for human consumption, it’s not fit for Humankind!

Some other things I love, love, love about Humankind include:Try this REAL food for your pet - Humankind!

  • High-quality ingredients
    • Unlike traditional pet foods, Humankind is not allowed to use 4D meat from dead, dying, diseased or disabled animals due to its 100% human quality approval.
    • Virtually all pet food sold today is actually classified as animal feed, which is held to a different regulatory standard than human food. In contrast, Humankind is real food, just minimally processed, and is packed with high-quality animal protein, fatty acids and a natural prebiotic to support high energy, healthy skin coat, and proper digestion.
  • Transparency & clean label
    • Humankind has a clean label, which means there are no by-products, GMO-ingredients, artificial preservatives, ingredients from China, meals, or fillers of any kind so pet lovers can feel confident that they’re feeding their pets the very best, highest-quality food.
  • Credibility
    • Dogfoodadvisor.com “enthusiastically recommends” Humankind because of the significant amount of named meat as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand its coveted top 5-star rating.
  • Balanced nutrition for all life stages and breeds
    • Humankind is available in three formulations based on the nutritional requirements for various activity levels:
      • Active: For dogs with regular activity level and weight.
      • Highly Active: For sporty dogs or dogs on the thin side.
      • Less Active: For couch potatoes or dogs with lots to love.Try Humankind food for your fur family!

Best of all, Humankind makes it affordable to feed your dog a nutritious, balanced meal. A 10-pound bag of the dehydrated food is $99.99 and will feed a 30-pound dog for about a month.

If you’d like to let your best friend try Humankind, the company is currently offering a five-pound bag FREE (a $59.99 value) when you sign up for their subscription program.
