THIS IS RIVERWOOD

“You are what you eat”: A saying that contains it all. Proper nutrition contributes to feeling fit and vital. This also applies to animals and therefore, Johnson Petfoods launched Riverwood. A new line of dog and cat nutrition prepared with only the best ingredients, which are pure, handcrafted and created with passion.

“If adult people are consciously engaged in nutrition, they also want the best nutrition for their children and pets,” explains John Sars, director of Johnson Petfoods, “This has been the base for creating Riverwood.” Before Johnson Petfoods started the development of this new, unique line of dog and cat food, Johnson Petfoods performed a lot of research and carefully listened to the market. “We have carefully looked at the market to find out where consumers and nutritionists are excited about,” says John. “All the top ingredients of the good dog foods, but also statements that we heard or read from dog experts, veterinarians and behaviorists have been considered, weighed, tested and discussed. Finally we have chosen only the best ingredients in Riverwood.”

 

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

In Riverwood, the best of both worlds come together. John: “There are six types of Riverwood: each varient contains three hypoallergenic protein sources. The meat we use is from animals that could roam free and therefore have a better muscle development. This has a positive effect on the quality of the meat. For Riverwood we do not use any grains or potatoes as a carbohydrate source, we chose yellow peas because of its low glycemic index; these carbohydrates are slowly broken down, what is better for a healthy and stable blood sugar level. Additionally, Riverwood contains a balanced selection of vegetables and fruits and of course, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.”

 

HEALING POWERS

In addition to the very best ingredients, Riverwood also contains herbs that have medicinal or supporting effects. “Think of marigold: it has a reputation for its anti-inflammatory effect,” says John. “It also helps in wound healing, strengthens the immune system and is good for the gastrointestinal tract. Another example is cinnamon: this also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps soothe the stomach. It also breaks down internal gases and has a beneficial effect on blood sugar.”

GRAIN FREE / GLUTEN FREE

Grains such as corn, wheat and rye are seen as the cause of allergic reactions of dogs. These allergies can manifest themselves through all sorts of unpleasant symptoms like vomiting, itchy burning spots on the skin and dull coat. At Riverwood, we believe that both dogs and cats are true carnivores, and so not built to digest grains very well. Hence, the high meat content and the completely GRAIN FREE formulas of Riverwood.

 

MEAT MEAL EXPLAINED

There is a lot of un-clarity about the use of meat meal in petfood. Meat contains about 75% water, about 20 to 25% protein and about 5% fat. During the drying of the fresh meat, it loses 50 to 60% of its mass. The dry meat, what is left, is then grounded (so without bones, feathers, beaks or paws) into what we call meat meal. The great advantage of meat meal is that there is no loss of meat percentage during the preparation of the kibbles, because the moisture has already been removed from the meat. In other words, the amount you put in at the beginning of the preparation process, is still the same at the end of the process, and that is what your dog or cat will taste.

 

HYPOALLERGENIC

Food allergy or food intolerance means that a dog or cat is allergic to a particular ingredient in food. In most cases, there is an allergy for a protein like beef or chicken or wheat gluten. In a good hypoallergenic diet for dogs or cats, the protein source is not frequently used in other dog or cat food. If a dog or cat has never eaten a particular ingredient, it cannot be allergic to it.

All of this is the reason why special protein sources like duck, turkey, pheasant, elk, deer, wild boar, lamb and rabbit are used in Riverwood dog and cat food. Each high quality protein source, with healthy nutrients, are barely used in other pet foods, and are therefore perfectly suitable for a hypoallergenic diet.
