Calcium formulation in recipes
There are one or two forms of calcium in our home-cooked dog food recipes -
dicalcium phosphate and calcium carbonate. While other dog foods
may utilize bone meal as a source of calcium, the danger is that it could
contain heavy metals and other contaminants. For this reason, NomNomNow
exclusively uses dicalcium phosphate and calcium carbonate to best balance the
ingredients in every recipe, and to provide the important nutrients without any
unintended consequences caused by bone meal.
Having the right amount of calcium in their diet is especially important for
puppy development, as it helps prevent things like developmental orthopedic
disease. The calcium in NomNomNow dog food recipes are carefully measured to
support healthy growth and development of both small and large breed puppies
(and dogs of all other life stages).
