Is Bond’s nutritional yeast a safe ingredient for my dog?

Nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein for dogs. Ours has been fully evaluated for its digestibility, palatability and performance, and meets AAFCO standards.

Do you ship to addresses outside of the U.S.?

Will you offer both dog and cat food products in the future?

Yes! We’re starting with dog treats and foods, but cat food products are also in the works.

What is microbial fermentation?

Microbial fermentation is a technology that has been used to safely and effectively produce hundreds of food ingredients for decades. Working with microbes like yeast and a feedstock of simple sugars, salts, vitamins and minerals, this “brewing” technology is able to produce everything from pure nutritional yeast (like the protein in our Protein-Packed Dog Treat Bar), to more ambitious ingredients like enzymes that are necessary for cheese manufacture, to our future meat proteins. Click here for more information on the basic process.

Who is supporting your work and efforts?

We are a venture-backed company. Some of the best funds in the alternative protein space have joined our investment team, including Lever VC, KBW Ventures, Agronomics and Plug and Play Ventures.

Why not just use conventional meat proteins in your pet food products?

Meat is a beautiful thing for dogs and cats. It gives them all of the essential amino acids to thrive, and it’s highly digestible and bioavailable.

With that it’s no surprise that the amount of meat that our pets eat isn’t trivial. If the dogs and cats in the U.S. alone were their own country, their consumption of meat products would rank fifth in the world.

Yet the production of meat comes with a host of environmental, safety and animal welfare challenges to satiate this demand.

Through microbial fermentation, there’s a better way to create proteins and complete foods that perform just the same- or better- without the downsides. So people, pets, farm animals and the planet all win.

What’s the difference between a veterinarian and a Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist®?

A Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist® is a specialist that is uniquely trained in the nutritional management of both healthy animals and those with one or more diseases. These are veterinarians who are board-certified specialists in veterinary nutrition, they are uniquely qualified to formulate commercial foods and supplements, formulate home-prepared diets, manage the complex medical and nutritional needs of individual animals. Training involves intensive clinical, teaching, and research activities. There are less than 100 board certified veterinary nutritionists in the entire world. They are recognized by the American College of Veterinary Nutrition (ACVN®).
