We puree vegetables for dogs to break down the cellular wall so that they can absorb the nutrients; but are our dogs really benefiting from pureed vegetables? It's a lot of work only for our dogs to poop the food out, right?
On the other hand, when we ferment the vegetables, we're creating a food that closely resembles the stomach contents of prey.
EASY TO DIGEST: Fermented foods are easier to digest and don't make the gut work hard to break down and absorb the nutrients in the food.
PROBIOTICS: Fermented foods provide healthy, natural probiotics for gut health. And because this is a natural source of probiotics, it may replace commercial supplements for many dogs, saving us money.
BETTER IMMUNE SYSTEM: Fermented foods help improve gut health, which frees up the immune system can do its job; helping to decrease allergies and inflammation. Healthy gut, healthy dog!
ANTIOXIDANTS FIGHT CANCER: Fermented vegetables are an excellent source of fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients (a substance found in many plants that supports good health and prevents disease).
