At Edgard & Cooper we use a combination of chelated minerals and inorganic minerals to ensure an optimal supply of minerals for your pet.

We are committed to providing high-quality, nutritious food for your pets. Our use of both chelated and inorganic minerals ensures that your furry friends receive the best possible nutrition in every bite.

What are chelated minerals?

Chelated minerals are minerals bound to organic molecules, usually amino acids. This process enhances their absorption and bioavailability, making it easier for your pet's body to utilize them effectively.

Benefits of chelated minerals

  • Improved absorption: chelated minerals are more easily absorbed in the digestive tract, ensuring that your pet gets the most out of these essential nutrients.

  • Enhanced bioavailability: with better absorption comes better bioavailability, meaning the minerals are more readily available for your pet's body to use.

  • Reduced gastrointestinal issues: chelated minerals are less likely to cause gastrointestinal upset compared to some inorganic minerals.

What are inorganic minerals?

Inorganic minerals, such as sulfates and oxides, are minerals that are not bound to organic molecules. These are the traditional forms of minerals used in many pet foods.

Benefits of inorganic minerals

  • Cost-effective: inorganic minerals are generally more cost-effective, helping to keep the overall cost of pet food down for our customers.

  • Adequate supply: they provide a reliable source of essential minerals needed for your pet's health.

Why use a combination?

By combining chelated and inorganic minerals, we ensure that your pet receives the optimal balance of cost-effectiveness and bioavailability. This approach helps to provide a comprehensive supply of essential nutrients for overall health and well-being.
