The composition of BugsforPets Dog - Compressed Chunk has been improved! The diet still contains only one single protein source and one single fat source. This means that this food remains suitable for sensitive dogs or an elimination diet.

Hypersensitivity to food means that the dog has a(n) (excessive or allergic) reaction to specific ingredients in the food.

Pressed dry food
An important fact about the food is that it is pressed and not extruded. The difference between these two techniques is in the temperature. When pressing, the food is produced at a lower temperature, while extruding it requires a much higher temperature. The low production temperature for pressing prevents the ingredients from being affected or lost, something that can happen when processing foods at higher temperatures, such as extrusion.
The processing of the Black Soldier Flies in the BugsforPets dog food takes place in the Netherlands. The BSF fly has a life cycle of just 8 weeks. In addition, the number of litres of water needed to produce proteins from the meat of this fly is very low. To process in 1 kg of protein from the BSF flies, about 8 litres of water are used, where 8350 litres of water are needed to gain 1 kg of protein from cows. The BSF larvae are cultivated exclusively with vegetable materials, under GMP+ certification by an NVWA accredited grower.
