We believe that pet foods should avoid starchy ingredients that might
lead to weight gain and obesity. An alternative to a grain free diet is
to pick a dog food that avoids the high sugar grains such as corn or
wheat. There are particular grains such as steel cut oats that are very
good for your dog and have many beneficial properties. That’s why we at
Boréal have developed a line called BORÉAL PROPER DOG FOOD.
Low glycemic index steel cut oats & barley from Ontario’s Central
Mennonite farming region are fantastic ingredients, along with low
glycemic peas and white beans. Proper grains are low carb grains plus
steel cut oats and barley are a great value and are grown locally.
Ontario oats and barley provide a rich source of vitamins, minerals, low
glycemic carbohydrates, essential oils, fiber and proteins.
We use a single source of meat protein in our Proper Dog Foods to
assist in digestibility and allergy issues. These foods are naturally
persevered and are potato, wheat and corn free.
Our Boreal Proper Dog Foods also contains ZINPRO® organic zinc.
ZINPRO is easily absorbed and is 200 x more available to a dog than
other zinc sources. Up to 66% of dog breeds, including most northern
breeds like Huskies, benefit from feeding zinc. Zinc is essential for
healthy skin & coat.
