Are enzymes added to Edgard & Cooper pet food?
Updated over a week ago

We do not use any added enzymes in our food. Here’s why:

Natural ingredient focus

At Edgard & Cooper, we prioritize using whole, natural ingredients that naturally contain beneficial enzymes. We believe that a diet based on high-quality, unprocessed ingredients provides the necessary nutrients without the need for additional enzymes.

Cost and complexity

Adding enzymes to pet food can increase production costs and complexity. We opt to avoid these extra steps to keep our products more affordable for you.

Stability concerns

Enzymes are sensitive to temperature and pH changes, and they can be deactivated during the cooking or extrusion processes used to make pet food. Ensuring the stability and efficacy of added enzymes throughout the production process and shelf life of the product can be challenging.

Consumer preferences

Some pet owners prefer food that does not contain added enzymes due to concerns about processing and artificial additives. We choose to cater to this market segment by keeping our ingredient lists simple and natural.

Regulatory and labeling issues

Adding enzymes to pet food can involve additional regulatory scrutiny and labeling requirements. To avoid these complexities, we do not include them in our products.

Adequate nutrient provision

High-quality pet food formulations can be designed to provide complete and balanced nutrition without the need for added enzymes. Our formulations ensure that pets receive all the necessary nutrients for their health and well-being through carefully selected ingredients and nutrient profiles.

By choosing Edgard & Cooper, you are providing your pet with nutritious food made from natural ingredients without added enzymes, supporting their health and well-being.
