WHY IS MEAT SO IMPORTANT FOR MY DOG?
Meat contains important elements for the building and transformation of muscles, organs, tendons and connective tissue, and so helps to maintain important bodily functions.
As members of the carnivore family, dogs are particularly good at processing meat and converting the nutrients it contains into endogenous structures. In addition to many essential amino acids (protein building blocks), meat contains many vitamins (especially vitamin A and various B vitamins) and trace elements such as iron.
We do not use meat meal
The fresher the meat is when it is processed, and the gentler this processing is, the lower are the losses in nutrients, and consequently the better the product tastes to your dog!

RECIPE WITHOUT GRAIN WITHOUT POTATOES
Many dog owners are keen to feed their four-legged friend a grain-free diet. This is why there are now many dog foods on the market that contain potatoes instead of grain. It is true that potatoes are easy to digest and are normally well tolerated even by dogs with feed allergies, but they do have a high glycaemic index. This affects the rise in blood sugar levels after feeding, and so also cause the dog to feel hungry again. This is why the carbohydrate sources we have chosen for BELCANDO® MASTERCRAFT are amaranth, peas, fava beans and chickpeas. Not only do they have a low glycaemic index; they also contain more valuable protein, bulk elements and trace elements than wheat. This allows us to provide a healthy and varied spread of nutrients without making the food hard to digest.
We have paid particular attention to ensuring that each variety has the same nutrient profile. So you can switch between varieties as you like, or mix them together, without worrying that your dog might have trouble digesting them. Treat your four-legged friend to the full meaty taste of the five different BELCANDO® MASTERCRAFT dry feeds – or give him the one he likes best every day. BELCANDO® MASTERCRAFT makes you your dog’s „Menu Creator“!
BELCANDO® MASTERCRAFT dry feed is tailored to the energy and nutrient requirements of dogs that take an active part in the lives of „their“ humans. It doesn’t matter whether your dog is small or large, with a sturdy or elegant frame: all dogs enjoy the innovative kibble form!
We only use fresh meat to make BELCANDO® MASTERCRAFT. It does not contain any pre-dried meat meal that is found in even high-quality dry feed. This has allowed us to achieve a product that was previously thought impossible. Our very gentle Fresh Meat Technology is applied to process the fresh meat directly into a kibble.
This compensates pre-drying stages, and the ingredients used remain fresh until just before processing. This is the only way that the full flavour of the meat can later emerge in the kibble. Owners can switch between flavours at any time without worrying, because the protein and fat content is equal among all varieties.
