Everything about the Holorf Feed Holost (Grandorf)

Today we will tell you about one of the most popular line of dog and cat food – Grandorf feed. I want to start with the fact that these feeds belong to the Holistic class.
Holivics are new generation feeds for the preparation of which only high-quality ingredients suitable for human consumption are used. They are perfectly balanced, adapted for metabolism and other features of animals of different age periods and sizes, have excellent taste properties.
This type of feed is the most expensive in comparison with the economy, premium and super-premium, but at the same time the most popular, as it perfectly matches the physiology of dogs and cats, which, in fact, are oriented to these lines. All diets are easily digested, supply the necessary substances in sufficient quantities to the body, support the coat and skin in a beautiful and healthy state, and help the animal to maintain youthfulness and activity.
The Grandorf range is produced in Belgium, and the production process itself complies with strict European quality standards. At the same time, the price of feed remains quite affordable. The company manages to keep an affordable price thanks to Russian roots. Why Russian? And all because the Grandorf company was founded and registered in Russia, but at the same time, feed is manufactured and packaged abroad in compliance with all technologies. The founders of the brand focus on quality, while advertising has a minimum of costs, which positively affects the cost.
For example, at the beginning of 2017, the average cost of packing Granddorf feed weighing 3 kg amounted to 1460 rubles, and 12 kg – 4850 rubles. If we compare the price with Akan and Wolfsblat forages (holistic competitors), we can see that the average price for two kilogram packages was 1,421 and 1,600 rubles, respectively. As we can see, this price is comparable or even higher compared to the three-kilogram packages of Grandorf feed. That is, Grandorf, relatively speaking, for the same money you can buy a whole kilogram more!
The main goal of the company is to maintain the health of dogs and cats, which is directly reflected in the formulation and quality of feed. By the way, when developing food, the opinion of veterinarians, technologists, professional breeders and private dog owners was taken into account, while feed was produced in factories equipped with modern equipment. Such an integrated approach allows us to get a natural, healthy and tasty product for our beloved pets at the exit.

And now let’s take a closer look at the Grandof feed line and start, perhaps, with low-grain nutrition.
Low-grain feeds are prepared on the basis of lamb, white fish and rice and are balanced for animals of different ages and sizes. The content of meat or fish in such feeds reaches 60% of the total number of ingredients. However, do not be ahead of time to be scared of the “low-grain” prefix. The only cereal crop in this case is whole brown rice.
Indeed, brown rice is also cereal, but despite being related to other grains, it does not contain gluten (vegetable protein), so it is well absorbed even by animals with sensitive digestion. As part of the feed, rice plays the role of a valuable supplier of energy, B vitamins and minerals.
In addition to low-grain feeds, there are also feeds of the classic series.
By its quality, the classic line is not inferior to low-grain. The only difference is that instead of brown rice it contains white, and the cereal itself accounts for a large proportion of the total number of components. But, as in low-grain nutrition, there are no other cereals in the composition, and the feed formula is rich in high-quality meat, fish and additives necessary for health.
Despite the fact that classic and low-grain rice-supplemented foods are widespread among dog and cat owners, grain-free diets are the least hypoallergenic.
Grandorf grain-free feeds are made on the basis of duck and rabbit meat with the addition of sweet potatoes (sweet potato). They can be safely given to dogs and cats with sensitive stomachs and a predisposition to allergies. With the help of such diets, you can easily eliminate unwanted components from the diet of pets and thereby avoid the occurrence of adverse reactions. In addition, all Grandorf feeds contain Omega fatty acids, among the useful properties of which, among others, the ability to block allergens can be distinguished.
I would like to add that you will not find wheat, corn, soy, chicken and its derivatives in any of the Grandorf dry food. These components are excluded due to high allergenicity.
And in the composition there are a number of useful additives. For example, carob flour is good for the digestive process.
