"Selecting ingredients means knowing their origin, how they have been handled and what they contain deep inside their molecular structure. Definitively, that means becoming their lover."
The protein sources selected by Diusa Pet for its products must pass very strict quality controls and analysis. In addition to a careful selection of suppliers, chosen among those able to guarantee the most qualitative and constant product over time, all the ingredients of animal origin such as fresh and dehydrated chicken, duck, fish, lamb and deer undergo several careful analysis. Freshness and safety are tested by microbiology and possible contaminants, and their nutritional value is investigated, determining their digestibility and analyzing in detail its complete amino acid composition, which corresponds to the quality of the "bricks" that make up proteins. This is the most important parameter of completeness of a protein source.
The sources of lipids, as important as those of proteins, are equally controlled: fish oil and chicken fat are preserved with natural antioxidants, they are evaluated for their freshness (degree of oxidation and acidity) and analyzed in detail to unveil their composition in essential fatty acids, again the "building blocks" that compose lipids. This is made to guarantee the most optimal relationships between essential omega-6 and omega-3
The sources of carbohydrates, essential to form the kibbles, are not less controlled. In addition to a careful analysis regarding the presence of contaminants, we select these key ingredients according to the digestibility of their starch, the energy reserve molecule. Depending on its ability to release, during its digestion, simple sugars such as glucose, starches divide into two categories, those with high and those with a low glycemic index. Diusa Pet strictly chooses sources of low glycemic index starch for its maintenance products (naturally purified pea starch, sweet potato and whole grains) and highly digestible starch sources (rice and white potato) for some products of the Care line, where the nutritional requirements are to supply energy in the shortest time possible.
