CHIPPIN SUPPORTS A HEALTHY GUT

We partnered with Animal Biome, a group of microbiologists, to understand how Chippin snacks impact dog's gut microbiome. Your dog’s gut health is important and impacts immune system health, risk of disease and overall digestion. The small changes in a dog’s microbiome over the 30 day time point can be seen in the figure to the right. It has been confirmed that Chippin is packed with powerful ingredients that support a healthy level of diversity and bacterial community composition in the guts of dogs.

CHIPPIN PROTEINS ARE MORE DIGESTIBLE THAN CHICKEN

We conducted a study with researchers at the University of Illinois to compare the macronutrient, amino acid composition, protein quality and digestibility of cricket, spirulina and silver carp. The novel protein sources were compared to that of traditional pet food proteins. All Chippin protein sources had greater or comparable concentrations of indispensable (essential) amino acids in contrast with raw chicken. The standard amino acid digestibility of all protein were high indicating that these ingredients would be adequate protein sources in canine diets or treats. The digestible indispensable amino acid score for all Chippin proteins were over 100%, indicating that there are no limiting amino acids. Cricket, spirulina and silver carp are all nutritionally complete and a healthy ingredient in a balanced meal.
