Epigen™ is the first extruded dry diet/kibble pet food (patent pending) that is Starch Free™. Starch is the fundamental problem in all kibble pet foods because it is an unnatural ingredient (sugar source) for carnivorous pets. It has been scientifically and clinically proven that starch can contribute to disease including obesity, diabetes, cancer, dental disease, geriatric sarcopenia (muscle wasting), feline urinary stones, immune deficiency, susceptibility to infections, recovery from illness, skin and coat problems, organ failure, and more.
Epigen™represents the first important kibble pet food innovation in almost 60 years, replacing the unnatural starch ingredients with proteins (the carnivore's main requirement) and a wide spectrum of essential nutrients. This formula is much closer to the high protein , starchless foods carnivores are genetically programed to eat. With that, they are given greater opportunity to enjoy their full natural health.
Epigen™ contains an unprecedented 60+% meat and organs, over 60% protein and is replete with all the critical food elements Wysong was first to put into pet foods – probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes, phytonutrients, nutraceuticals, natural form antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in omega-3's and other essential fatty acids.
Epigen™ is equally appropriate for both cats and dogs.
