Low Glycemic Index (GI) Ratings Have Proven Health Benefits
The Glycemic Index is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100,
according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating.
Lower GI foods improve glucose and lipid levels in those with diabetes, helps
control weight by mitigating appetite/hunger and also aids in the reduction
of insulin and insulin resistance. A lower GI is a positive attribute in overall
health and pulses are some of the lowest GI foods.
Pulsar offers a selection of truly affordable single protein, grain free
formulas with an emphasis on 'pulses' such as red lentils and peas which
are highly digestible, low glycemic and antioxidant rich carbohydrates.
Grain free formulas have been a significant and positive movement in pet
foods over the last decade. Unfortunately, 'grain free' is now commonly
used as a marketing ploy to portray 'better quality' and therefore higher
prices. Don't be fooled.
Horizon starts with an emphasis on animal protein. Steroid free and growth
hormone free chicken, turkey and wild caught salmon are the cornerstone
proteins in Pulsar.
The nutritional and energy benefits of pulses (legumes) are unquestioned.
High dietary fiber, exceptionally low glycemic indices and packed with
antioxidants. This is what grain free aspires to be. We use red lentils and
peas which we source right where we operate - direct from growers. No low
cost potato or tapioca sourced through global agents. That's for pet foods
looking to claim 'grain free' but using carbohydrate alternatives that don't
measure up and simply don't justify the price tag.
Horizon supplements and rounds out the Pulsar formulations with choice
fresh fruits and raw vegetables plus a breadth of vitamin, mineral, probiotic
and prebiotic supplementation to significantly enhance the nutritional
impact, digestibility and palatibility of the food.
The fact Horizon self manufactures in Saskatchewan, Canada, source
directly from growers locally and dismiss the notion of expensive marketing
campaigns to obscure the quality standards of their foods like other foods
do, they can 'pay forward' a superior grain free food at an unmatched
