Unfortunately, there isn’t an established method of testing pet food today for glycaemic index and there isn’t any scientific guidance on what levels are suitable for dogs – most information is extrapolated from humans. There is also the added complexity that there are many references for glycaemic indexing of ingredients and that numbers aren’t absolute (i.e. they have a big buffer).
This means that depending on what references are chosen, the glycaemic load of our meals can swing between 9 and 11.5.
Nevertheless, what we can assure you is that:·
- All of our recipes contain less than 13% of carbohydrates which is lower than conventional dog foods, which often exceed 20%.
- All of the carbohydrates inside our recipes are less than 55 on any glycaemic index (veggies, lentils and flaxseed) and are considered low-GI.
