Scientific research discovered the genetic and enzymic capacity of dogs to digest and absorb glucose from grains through the pancreatic amylase two enzyme in their gastrointestinal tract. Sorghum has been consumed for over 8000 years and originated in Nabta Playa, Southern Egypt. Over time scientific research has proven the nutritional benefits sorghum can have on our canine and feline family members, which is why we have carefully selected it as our primary grain.

So what are some core benefits of Sorghum?

Firstly, Sorghum is a highly digestible option which means canine and feline family members can consume it easily and allows the energy from sorghum to be obtained readily.

Sorghum is gluten free, which will minimise gut intolerances to gluten proteins which cause gastrointestinal upset and loose stools. Sorghum is also Low GI (Glycemic Index) which assists with controlling blood sugar levels for diabetic cats and dogs. Due to this it can be a suitable nutritional choice assisting with the controlling of glucose levels as part of overall insulin management.

Sorghum is entirely non GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) and are not highly used in the human food chain anymore which ensures the sustainability of this ingredient for pet food. It is drought resistant which is important in our ever-changing drying climate. Sorghum also has an edible hull containing micronutrients and has a wax compound containing policosanols which can be beneficial too.

Cherish Pet Food has utilised sorghum, for its scientifically established benefits across the entire range of pet food and treats to assist with your four legged family members wellbeing and to nourish mind, body and spirit.

We take care of the science, so you can Cherish more moments together.
