RAW Bistro

Superfood spotlight: Kale

The idea of "superfood" may sound a little trendy, but do not underestimate the power of adding these nutrient-dense foods to your dog's diet.  Superfoods are loaded with with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more that offer considerable health benefits.

Kale

Dark green vegetables are nutrition powerhouses, and kale is the cruciferous king. Loaded with vitamins K, A & C, antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, iron and chlorophyll.  It helps with liver detoxification and also has anti-inflammatory properties. 

  • Vitamin K: Activation of clotting factors, bone proteins, and other proteins
  • Vitamin A: Vision; growth, immune function, fetal development, cellular differentiation, transmembrane protein transfer
  • Iron: Synthesis of blood components; energy metabolism

You'll find this superfood in our free-range chicken entree.  We start with human-grade organic kale that has been washed, blanched and frozen at the peak of freshness. For maximum benefits and digestibility, kale is blended to a raw puree.
