High protein, limited ingredients... the fundamentals.
Chicken Meal
Consisting of ground flesh (chicken meat), skin, and some bone, and exclusive of feathers, heads, feet and entrails. It is very digestible protein and contains chelated minerals and bone and joint nourishing proteoglycans. Chicken meal differs from fresh/frozen chicken in that the moisture has been removed. It therefore permits a more concentrated and dense quantity of meat and protein.
Brown Rice
A nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, tocotrienols, and fiber. Carbohydrate and starch sources such as brown rice are not a necessary component of a companion animal's diet, but they can be fed in moderation and variety without ill effects and with nutritional benefits. For a Starch Free™ alternative, the only of its kind, see Wysong Epigen™.
Organic Chicken
Organic chicken meat sourced from U.S. suppliers. A superior source of protein, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and micronutrients.
Chicken Fat
High quality, naturally preserved, and a source of essential linoleic acid and fat soluble vitamins.
Natural Chicken Flavor
Enzymatically pre-digested, dried chicken. Contains high levels of high value protein in an easy to digest form.
Taurine
An essential amino acid for cats and arguably for dogs as well. Taurine can be diminished in food processing and should be supplemented. It exerts a host of benefits for the cardiovascular, ocular, and central nervous systems. It is also an antioxidant and is important in muscular response to exercise. Wysong ingredients processed using Wysong special processing provide an excellent source of taurine. However, as insurance, taurine is also supplemented to the diets.
Calcium Propionate
A preservative.
Choline Chloride
Choline is a B-complex vitamin which helps to build cell membranes, promote nerve function, and maintain normal growth.  Choline also plays a significant role in fat metabolism, liver regulation, and renal protection.
Citric Acid
Acts as a natural preservative by chelating oxidizing minerals.
Yeast Extract
The cell walls of yeast that exert probiotic effects and support immune system health.
Mixed Tocopherols
A natural mix of epimers of vitamin E.
Rosemary Extract
Exerts potent antioxidant and preservative effects.
Chicory Root
An herb that is rich in antioxidants, and known to enhance digestive health through its inulin prebiotic effects.
Yeast Culture
A living yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that exerts probiotic effects, assists digestion, secretes enzymes, provides immune system health, and produces vitamins.
Minerals
While minerals are in food ingredients themselves, processing and modern farming practices may diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. Wysong minerals are in their most bioavailable forms including both inorganic and chelated proteinates.
Calcium Carbonate
Calcium in a natural form to help balance the phosphorus levels in meats. Calcium is crucial to bones, teeth, and metabolic processes.
Vitamins
While vitamins are in food ingredients themselves, processing diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. The safety and benefits of fortification are supported by hundreds of thousands of scientific studies. (See article No Vitamin, Mineral Processed foods.) Wysong fortifying vitamins include: Ascorbic Acid [source of Vitamin C], Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex [source of Vitamin K activity], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid.
Probiotics
Probiotic microorganisms exert a number of benefits including improving intestinal microbial balance, enzyme and vitamin production, and immune system health. Wysong probiotics include: Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus lactis.
