Are the ingredients human-grade?
Yes, Lola & Baxter's recipes are made with high-quality, human-grade ingredients that are safe and nutritious for dogs. Human-grade ingredients are those that are fit for human consumption, meaning they meet the same standards as food that we would eat ourselves. This ensures that Lola & Baxter's fresh food is made with the same care and attention as the food that we eat.
Are the recipes free from preservatives, additives, and fillers?
Yes, Lola & Baxter's recipes are free from preservatives, additives, and fillers. We believe in using only high-quality, minimally processed ingredients to ensure that your dog gets the most nutritious and healthy meals possible. Our meals are made fresh, vacuum-sealed, then frozen before delivery to ensure that we never have to use any artificial preservatives or additives. We also do not use any fillers, such as grains or soy, which are often added to commercial dog food to reduce costs.
Are the recipes grain-free?
Yes, Lola & Baxter's recipes are grain-free and contain quinoa as the sole source of grain. Quinoa is often referred to as a grain due to its similar texture and nutritional profile to grains like rice or wheat. However, technically speaking, quinoa is not a grain. It is a seed that comes from a plant called Chenopodium quinoa, which is a member of the same family as beets and spinach. Quinoa is a complete protein, gluten-free, and a healthy addition to a dog’s diet.
