Our Unique Process is What Makes Flint River Ranch Better!
A dog's intestinal tract is short; it functions in the most efficient manner when their food is concentrated and can be quickly assimilated. Flint River Ranch Natural, Super & Ultra Premium Canine Formulas are slowly oven-baked under carefully controlled conditions and optimum temperatures to address your dogs unique nutritional needs.
Our unique baking process converts the hard to digest raw starches into easy to digest carbohydrates. Acting as a pre-digest, our oven baking process benefits your dog in less strain on the digestive system and produces a greater degree of nutritional absorption. Our unique oven-baked technology allows the important vitamins, minerals and proteins to be easily absorbed through your dog's digestive system. Any company can just mix ingredients and make a pet food, our strength is in the total preparation and cooking process. This is one of many reasons other manufacturers can not easily duplicate the results of our formulas or our unique oven-baking processes.
The Oven-Baking Process:
In our oven baked process, 2 inch sized biscuits are formed & molded and then truly oven-baked, moving slowly through a computer-controlled oven. These biscuits are then broken into small, irregular shaped, open-edged, cracked kibbles ranging in size from fine morsels to about a 1/2 inch kibble. The large and small kibbles provide nutritional benefits and are both working together to enhance your pet's health in different ways. The smaller morsels are very important because they digest quickly in the dog's body; delivering nutritional vitamins, minerals, proteins, healthy amino acids and fats to you pet's system faster for immediate health and energy benefits. As dogs do not chew their meal, they tend to "wolf it down," the larger crunchy kibbles will help to naturally clean teeth, exercise gums and freshen breath. Just one more aspect that makes our formulas so great!
Color of Food?
Oven-baked food is food in its natural state; it will have various shades of colors, from the soft, light tan to the heavy brown, crunchy outside. Like other natural things in our world, the color of our kibbles will vary from time to time, but the same great taste and wholesome natural ingredients are always consistent. No oils, or other flavor-enhancement ingredients need to be prayed on our foods to encourage your pets to eat...your pets will taste the goodness with each and every bite!
Digestibility and Palatability
Because of out natural ingredients and oven-baking process, Flint River Ranch canine formulas score in the mid 90's for digestibility and palatability. Generally, most commercial extruded foods is in the low to mid 80's on a scale of 100. This means our wholesome and natural ingredients reach your pet's system faster, providing health benefits quickly and more completely.
