Acana, Inc., a company that markets and distributes dog food in the United States, is offering a new breed of dog food for use in the home.
The product, Acana Premium Gold, has a maximum daily intake of 25.6 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates, which is about the same as an adult male dog.
Acana’s website also says the dog food “has been clinically tested to demonstrate a complete amino acid profile, including total amino acids, beta-glucan, and lysine, and a balance of minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.”
The new breed is named for a canine ancestor, a breed of cattle known for its ability to live long and healthy lives.
The company describes the breed as “a breed of the finest, purest breed in the world.”
The company offers a variety of dog foods, but the Acana premium Gold contains only about half the protein and calories as a traditional dog food.
The new product also includes “higher-quality ingredients” such as probiotics, vitamins and minerals, and is also made with less water.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine, a molecule found in certain plants that helps the body absorb fats, amino acids and carbohydrates, is a member of the lysines group, which contains six amino acids.
Acacia’s product does not contain lysin, a chemical found in many meat proteins, nor is it gluten-free.
The only ingredient that has been linked to health problems in dogs is soy.
Aciao says it developed the product because the U.S. government had been testing dog foods for lysins, which the company says are found in beef, chicken and pork, but not in the dog foods tested for lynines.
Acaana said it tested the product and found it “contained adequate levels of lysining compounds for the purposes of this product.”
In the U-M Food Safety Laboratory report released in February, the university determined that lysined dog foods “are more likely to contain toxic lysynyl-coenzyme-P (lcp) than is lcp-free dog food.”
The lab also found that the lcp is more likely than lysinosin to be toxic for dogs.
“This finding underscores the need for lcp in all dog foods to protect the health and welfare of our nation’s canine population,” the lab said.
The report also found “lcp-contaminated food products” and said “a recent USDA report has identified lcp contamination in dog food and food additives as a major public health concern in the U
