The nutritional and energy benefits of pulses (legumes) are unquestioned. High dietary fiber, exceptionally low glycemic indices and packed with antioxidants. This is what grain free aspires to be. They use red lentils and peas which we source right where they operate - direct from growers. No low cost potato or tapioca sourced through global agents. That's for pet foods looking to claim 'grain free' but using carbohydrate alternatives that don't measure up and simply don't justify the price tag. They supplement and round out the Pulsar formulations with choice fresh fruits and raw vegetables plus a breadth of vitamin, mineral, probiotic and prebiotic supplementation to significantly enhance the nutritional impact, digestibility and palatibility of the food.
