The DOWN UNDER recipe combines a wolf’s natural diet with the latest scientific findings about correct dog nutrition.

The main source of food for wolves, from which our canine companions are descended, is of course meat and fish. But wolves also consume fruit, herbs and vegetables either by foraging, or via the contents of their prey’s stomach. This is how wolves get the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and secondary plant compounds they need.

However, the composition of DOWN UNDER dry food goes a step further. Together with vets and food scientists, each individual ingredient has been compiled according to the type and quantity needed, so you can be confident that DOWN UNDER is in line with the latest knowledge about the dietary requirements of dogs. This makes DOWN UNDER dog food unique.

Learn more about the superfoods in our recipe such as Moringa oleifera, and Jerusalem artichoke.

  • Moringa oleifera is a plant from the Moringaceae family and comes from the Himalaya region of North West India. What makes Moringa oleifera attractive to mammals is its high concentration of beneficial plant compounds. These include:
    • 7 vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, K)
    • antioxidants
    • omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
    • 10 amino acids (arginine, histidine, lysine, tryptophan, phenylalanine, methionine, threonine, leucine, isoleucine, valine)
    • 14 minerals and trace elements, including iron and zinc.
    Due to their quantity and particular combination, these plant compounds cause a strengthening of the immune system in mammals, which is why Moringa oleifera is said to have many positive effects for maintaining health. For example, several medical studies show that the juice of Moringa oleifera leaves is antimicrobial, meaning it inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria. (1, 2, 3, 4)
  • Immutop® is a Jerusalem artichoke concentrate from the Jerusalem artichoke tuber. It belongs to the daisy family and contains the carbohydrate inulin. A scientific study conducted in 2006 at the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology at Leipzig University’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine concluded that inulin from the Jerusalem artichoke plant promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. (5) A study by a team of scientists headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Diefenbach from the Institute of Microbiology and Hygiene at Freiburg University Medical Center concluded that healthy intestinal flora strengthens immune defence in mammals and thus protects them from various bacteria and viruses (6).
