Some of our dog and cat foods utilize a purified potato starch as a binder (our ZERO line of foods contain none). Purified potato starch does not contain plant proteins. Without plant proteins, only the carbohydrates/starch remain. And because potato starch molecules are large, they are an efficient binder requiring a lot less quantity- 2/3 lower inclusion rate. Young Again cat kibble, for instance, is comprised of less than 6% starch, as opposed to the 20 to 30% starch used by other companies.
Purified potato starch has proven to be an efficient, low-carbohydrate binder. It is one more way that Young Again offers the best products for your pet’s continuing health and happiness.
