Yeast in our recipes
Updated over a week ago

Why is yeast used in some of Edgard & Cooper's recipes?

At Edgard & Cooper, we are dedicated to providing your furry friends with nutrition that goes beyond the basics. Yeast is one of the key ingredients we incorporate into some of our recipes, not only for its delicious flavor but also for its numerous health benefits.

What are the benefits of yeast in pet food?

Yeast serves as a rich source of two crucial elements – Mannan Oligosaccharides (MOS) and Beta-glucans. These compounds play pivotal roles in supporting your pet's immune system and maintaining gut health.

  • Mannan Oligosaccharides (MOS): MOS acts as a prebiotic, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. This enhances the overall balance of the gut microbiome, contributing to improved digestion and nutrient absorption.

  • Beta-glucans: Beta-glucans are renowned for their immune-boosting properties. They stimulate the immune system, helping your pet's body defend against potential threats and ensuring a robust line of defense against infections and illnesses.

In which products is yeast included?

Yeast is present in several of our products, including:

  • Plant-based dog kibble

  • Cat kibble

  • Keep It Up Bars with apple and blueberry

These products are designed to fortify your pet's immune system and maintain optimal gut health.

How does yeast enhance my pet's health?

By incorporating yeast into our recipes, we aim to go beyond providing just a meal. We strive to enhance your pet's overall health and vitality. Yeast contributes to a healthier gut, better digestion, improved nutrient absorption, and a stronger immune system.

The yeast used in dog food, such as nutritional yeast, is different from the yeast that causes infections.

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, meaning it is not alive and cannot contribute to infections. It is used as a flavor enhancer and a nutritional supplement, providing B vitamins, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS), and beta-glucans, which support gut health and the immune system.

If your dog has a yeast infection, it's always a good idea to consult your veterinarian.
