Just like humans, dogs have a calorie goal for daily intake to maintain body condition without losing or gaining fat and muscle. All nutrition calculations are done with weight, not volume, so its wise to invest in a small kitchen scale. To further complicate matters, most foodstuffs are presented in SI units such as grams or kilograms and some conversion to ounces or pounds may be necessary. For reference, an average 8 oz cup weighs 120 grams (.12kg) and contains 430 Calories when filled with Blue Naturals. Therefore, each pound of Blue Naturals contains 1626 Calories and each kilogram 3577.

While Ol' Blue brand dog foods have always been wheat, soy, dye, preservative and by-product free, Blue Naturals is the first step in the line to produce alternative grain and grain-free rations. Beginning in 2010, research began on the most economical alternative grain dog food that wouldn't compromise quality for cost. At roughly 90% the nutritional value of conventional corn and always non-gmo, grain sorghum became a popular addition to the trial. Finding the balance between sorghum, oatmeal, and barley, the experiment yielded exceptional results and Blue Naturals was born. Next, feed trials were conducted to substantiate the purported nutritional benefits of an alternative grain ration. Dogs with corn allergies or sensitivity immediately reported positive results, and in 2012 Blue Naturals was introduced for sale on location at the mill only. Today, it nourishes dogs from tiny chihuahuas to great big danes, and is the most economical local option for corn, wheat, and soy free pet food in the southeast. As always, the first ingredients are meat: beef and pork. Your dog will radiate health with the addition of chicken fat, flax seed, dried kelp, and coconut oil for a healthy coat.
