TEWKSBURY, MASS., July 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holistic Select®, the natural pet food supporting total body health through digestive health, announces the expansion of its grain-free line with savory pâté wet food recipes for dogs and cats, and a new grain-free dry dog food recipe, Deboned Turkey & Lentils.
Remaining true to Holistic Select's focus on the importance of a pet's digestive health, the new recipes include prebiotic support, natural fiber and botanicals. Packed with premium proteins and natural botanicals such as pumpkin, papaya and pomegranate, the new savory pâté wet recipes are sure to please the palates of deserving dogs and cats. The new Deboned Turkey & Lentils dry dog food offers pet parents a recipe that is both grain free and potato free. Peas, lentils and chickpeas serve as nourishing low glycemic index carbohydrate sources for this tasty recipe.
"We are excited to introduce our new grain-free recipes. The digestive health support provided by Holistic Select helps support the growth of healthy bacteria in the intestine, aids digestion and promotes overall gut-health. Certain botanicals included in our recipes, like cinnamon, fennel and peppermint, are widely known to support a calm and balanced digestive system," says Dr. Al Townshend, Holistic Select Staff Veterinarian.
"Our priority is to provide wholesome, natural recipes, including grain-free options, that support the overall digestive health of dogs and cats of all sizes," says Kim Silva, Brand Manager for Holistic Select Natural Pet Food. "Knowing that 70% of a pet's immune system lies in their digestive track, we focus on digestive health for all of our recipes. We also continue to see a growing interest in grain-free. Our new recipes are the perfect blend of the two options and we're excited to add them to the Holistic Select line up."
