Pulsar Dog Food - Fish - copy
The evolution of Pulsar® is our mission to improve the health benefits available from grain free food – without compromise.
Our philosophy at Horizon Pet Nutrition is to seek new combinations of exceptional ingredients to optimize pet nutrition and push the boundaries of dietary evolution. Our approach was to increase the use of pulses, the edible seeds of legume plants, as a primary source of our carbohydrates. Examples include peas, lentils, chickpeas and fava beans. The result? Our power pulse couple - red lentils and peas. This combination packs a very powerful nutritional punch by not only reducing the glycemic index but by also enhancing both digestibility, through superior dietary fiber, and elevating antioxidant qualities to help fend off dangerous toxins.
Quality animal proteins remain the number one ingredient in Pulsar® grain free and we have developed chicken, salmon and turkey alternatives for consumers to choose. In addition, we have rounded out Pulsar's® dietary profile with an array of fruits, vegetables, botanicals and vitamins. These include carrots, apples, broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, blueberries, pineapple, yucca, aspergillus, vitamins A, D3, E and B12 and we have formulated the ingredient mix to include essential nutrients, balanced for absorption, digestibility and palatability. Lastly, Pulsar is naturally preserved with vitamin E with no added preservatives, colors or artificial flavours. All of the ingredients we use in Pulsar are purposeful and intended to contribute to the health and welfare of your pet.
Low Glycemic Index (GI) Ratings Have Proven Health Benefits
The Glycemic Index is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100, according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Lower GI foods improve glucose and lipid levels in those with diabetes, helps control weight by mitigating appetite/hunger and also aids in the reduction of insulin and insulin resistance. A lower GI is a positive attribute in overall health and pulses are some of the lowest GI foods.
