Why do you use natural agar-agar as a thickening agent in your wet food?

Because there is evidence that other thickeners commonly found in pet foods may not be as healthy for your pet. Carrageenan has been linked to gastrointestinal inflammation and digestive issues. Guar gum has some healthy benefits, but it’s derived from a bean. Beans are difficult for dogs to digest. Xanthan gum is derived from corn, wheat, dairy or soy. These nutrients can trigger allergies in sensitive pets.
