PERHAM, MINN. — NutriSource Pet Foods,  a brand produced by Tuffy’s Pet Foods, Inc., has launched a new high-protein dog food line, Element Series. Each formula in the series offers at least 83% animal protein per serving.

The diets are formulated by NutriSource’s team of pet food experts to address total health and wellness, including gastrointestinal health. Formulas are fortified with the brand’s proprietary Good 4 Life Plus probiotics blend, which is designed to supplement high-animal protein diets with nutrients that support digestion, nutrient absorption, cognitive and heart health, and skin and coat health.

“Diets high in protein help our pet companions stay strong, active and healthy,” said Darren Fujii, chief growth officer and national sales manager for NutriSource Pet Foods. “We’re excited to expand our product offerings that provide pet parents with new options created specifically to boost the immune system, support proper digestion and heart health of their pet companions.”

Element Series diets also feature DL methionine, choline chloride, taurine and L-arginine, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, DHA, and fruits and vegetables.

These new diets are available in four recipes: Coastal Plains, which features a blend of turkey, salmon and whitefish; Open Waters, which includes Haddock, trout and duck; Outback Trails, including lamb, kangaroo and wild boar; and Wildlands, which features chicken, pork and bison.

The Element Series will be available at select independent pet retailers across the United States.

NutriSource and Tuffy’s are both owned by KLN Family Brands, which has been in the pet food business since 1964 and the candy and confectionery business since 1987.
