Beef is a high-quality source of protein with great palatability. Beef is rich in iron and zinc, which are beneficial for healthy skin and immune function. Beef is also rich in vitamins B12 and B6, which help support metabolic functions.
Beef liver is a protein-packed, nutrient-dense food that is also abundant in vitamin A, which is great for vision! In addition to supporting healthy vision, beef liver is also great for red blood cell health as it is a rich source of heme iron (the most absorbable form of iron). Beef liver is also high in vitamin B12, minerals, and essential fatty acids (omega-3 and -6), which help boost energy and support a healthy coat and immune system.
Russet potatoes are a great source of potassium and contain substantial amounts of vitamins C and B6. They are also a great source of niacin, magnesium, iron, thiamine, and dietary fiber, which are beneficial for healthy digestion and nervous system function.
Sweet potatoes are a tasty source of vitamin A, which can help support healthy vision. Sweet potatoes also contain dietary fiber and are packed with vitamins B6 and C, manganese, and potassium, which aid in maintaining healthy digestion.
Carrots are an excellent low-calorie source of beta-carotene as a source of vitamin A, which is great for maintaining healthy vision. Carrots are also a great source of fiber and vitamins C and K, which help immune function and blood clotting. Carrots contain potassium as well, which is an important electrolyte involved in hydration.
Green beans are rich in vitamin K, riboflavin (vitamin B2), copper, omega-3 fatty acids, and niacin. They are also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, and protein. Green beans are a wonderful aid for the healthy digestion and metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins.
Green peas are rich in protein and also a very good source of folate, manganese, magnesium, and thiamine. Green peas are a great source of fiber and antioxidants, which aid in digestion and can help overall health by supporting metabolic functions.
Apples are not only delicious but also high in antioxidants and fiber. We always core our apples before including them in our diets.
Safflower oil contains the essential omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid, which can help promote healthy skin and is important for optimal immune function.

All of our daily diets for dogs have passed AAFCO protocol feeding trials at Cal Poly Pomona. In fact, the trials conducted at the university were much more stringent than the AAFCO protocol standards, as the Animal Care and Use Committee (ACUC) of the university found the AAFCO feeding trial to be too rudimentary. The reality is our diets have passed trials that exceed AAFCO standards. JFFD is the first pet food company ever to conduct humane feeding trials at a major university using faculty and student dogs living happily in their own homes. Most pet food companies do not run trials at all and those that do tend to use laboratories that house beagles that live their lives for animal testing. Like everything we do at JFFD — we did it a better way! Learn more about our feeding trials here: A One of A Kind Partnership.
