Q: What are the Caloric Values of Newman's Own® Organics Pet Foods?
A: Click here for a table of Caloric Values.
Q: What is so special about this "new" canned food?
A: The food is 95% USDA Certified Organic and contains free-range beef from Uruguay.
Q: What does "USDA Certified Organic" pet food mean?
A: The food has gone through a third-party certification process - unlike "natural" or
"holistic" products - that validates that at least 95% of the ingredients are organic.
Even the manufacturing facility is inspected by an accredited agency to validate cleanliness,
manufacturing procedures and record keeping as well as that food ingredients are indeed certified organic.
Q: How do I really know this food is at least 95% Organic?
A: The USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) provides very specific labeling and manufacturing
requirements to assure you that the product is indeed 95% organic.
Q: Why is the meat from Uruguay?
A: Uruguay has a thriving economy and is recognized as one of the cleanest countries in the world.
In fact, smoking is not allowed in any building there. It is also a country that boasts of 270
organic beef farms and certified free of BSE and E. Coli.
Q: Is this "free-range" beef?
A: Yes. In fact, each free-range, grass-fed animal is maintained in an area equivalent of two soccer fields.
Q: Are the animals well cared for?
A: Yes. The animals are treated extremely well and, according to an animal behaviorist at
Colorado State University, exhibit very low stress levels. They even have their feet washed and
are bathed regularly.
Q:Is the product thoroughly tested?
A: Yes. All the products are manufactured to the highest standards of quality control and
samples are obtained during each production run for analysis and retention for additional evaluation.
Q: Is there any animal testing involved?
A: No. The only analytical testing done is in a laboratory where animals are NOT allowed. We do
"taste testing" with animals awaiting adoption in a local humane society shelter.
Q. Are these foods 100% Complete and Balanced?
A. Yes, the foods are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the Association
of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and contain the micro- and macro-nutrients needed for
pet health and vitality.
Q. Can a dog (or cat) eat a food made only with beef?
A. Yes. Dogs are omnivores, which means their biological needs include both meats and vegetables.
Cats are carnivores, or meat-eaters.
Q. How should I begin feeding this food?
A. Whenever there is a change of diet, it's advisable to slowly introduce the new food by mixing
it into the food currently fed over a period of 7-10 days. Gradually increase the amount of the
new food while decreasing the old food until you are feeding 100% Newman's Own Organic Pet food.
Q. How do I know how much to feed?
A. Feeding guidelines are printed on the label. Remember, these are starting points only and
continued feeding amounts depend on your pet's lifestyle and activity levels.
Q. Can I mix this canned food with Newman's Own Organics dry foods?
A. Yes. Canned foods are a great way to add a little variety and "extra" taste to dry foods.
Q. Why does this food have a gray appearance?
A. The 95% organic beef formulas for cats and dogs are quite unique as they are specifically formulated to be high in beef
based proteins and grain free. They are basically made from chopped, boiled beef and/or beef liver. This appearance is normal
as the meat has not been browned, and can appear greyish in color.
Q. What are the white flecks I see on top of the food?
A. When cold, the food may have gelled broth and tiny globules or fat on the surface. These are natural occurences as the
formulas do not contain any emulsifiers, fillers, gums or artificial colors. We recommend stirring in a small amount of warm water
before servicing to your pet. This will help to soften the food, even out the consistency and make it easier to mix with our dry food
if that is your feeding preference.
Q: Why does the Advanced Formula, which is recommended for older dogs, have higher protein levels than the Adult Formula?
A: Data over the past decade has refuted earlier research that suggested high protein diets were causative factors for kidney disease. Does increased protein in diet put more stress on the diseased organ? Apparently not. In perhaps the most noted clinical trial examining effects of high protein diet on progression of canine renal disease (CRD), groups of dogs diagnosed with CRD were fed either high protein diets or low protein diets. No significant difference was observed in the rate of progression of CRD in the high protein group compared to the low protein group. Therefore, excess protein in the diet did not appear to compromise renal function even in the presence of high endogenous levels of protein associated with the disease. In fact, on an individual basis some of the CRD dogs in the high protein diet group fared better.
Q: Why do the new formulas contain soy?
A: Soy is an excellent low-fat source of bio-available protein that contains antioxidant compounds and amino acids that boost the immune system and decrease levels of LDL cholesterol. While we don't yet know of all the beneficial effects soy may have on dog and cat health, its role as an important building block in human health has been well established.
Q: Doesn't soy cause bloat in dogs?
A: We have spoken to many veterinary clinicians and animal nutritionists and searched through a lot of literature and have yet been able to find any proof that soy causes bloat or any other digestive disturbances in dogs or cats.
Q: Aren't some animals allergic to soy?
A: Again, we can find no scientific proof of this. It is interesting, however, that humans with food allergies are turning to soy.
Q: Are any of the ingredients in Newman's Own® Organics organic pet foods genetically modified?
A: A: Newman's Own Organics pet food does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The certification process prohibits the use of genetically modified seeds, processing ingredients, fertilizers or anything produced using recombinant DNA methods.
Q: What are organic foods?
A: Organic foods are produced without the use of herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers, are not irradiated and do not contain chemical additives or preservatives. The growing of organic food is based on a system of feeding and farming that mimics natural ecosystems and maintains and replenishes nutrients in the soil.
Newman's Own Organics food ingredients have been grown and handled according to strict organic standards that are enforced by independent third-party state or private organizations. More than 70% of all ingredients used in the formulation of all Newman's Own Organics foods are organic.
Q: Why does Newman's Own Organics use natural chickens as the primary protein source?
A: Naturally fed "human grade" chickens do not contain antibiotics, artificial preservatives, additives or colors. The chickens are humanely raised in a controlled environment and never fed rendered meat scraps containing bones, feathers, fish meal, or animal fats, oils, or grease.
Q: Why does Newman's Own Organics use chicken "meal"?
A: Chicken meal provided is a dry concentrated protein-rich powder containing 10% water and no fat. Whole chicken meat, on the other hand, contains almost 70% water and is thus not as concentrated a source of the protein necessary for growth and vitality.
Q: What is "poultry by-product meal" that is listed as the number one ingredient in my current pet food?
A: Poultry by-product meal is defined as meat that is derived from ground necks, feet and intestines. Most often it is from 4D chickens. Newman's Own Organics does not use any poultry by-product meal in any of their dog or cat foods.
Q:I have often read that chicken in pet foods are often classified as 4D meats. What does 4D mean?
A: 4D chicken is meat and by-products that have been derived from chickens that were rejected by food inspectors who classified the chickens as not fit for human consumption because they were "Dead, Dying, Disabled or Diseased" at the time of inspection. Newman's Own Organics does not use 4D meats.
Q: Why does Newman's Own Organics use organic brown rice?
A: Organic brown rice contains nutrient rich bran layers, which are an excellent source of beneficial fiber, complex carbohydrates and essential amino acids and, when cooked, closely resemble the intestinal contents of a wild dogs' and cats' prey.
Q: What is "brewers rice" that is found in my pet food? What is the difference between brewers rice and the organic brown rice used in Newman's Own Organics organic pet food?
A: Brewers rice is the small fragments of milled rice (rice that has had its bran layers removed). Newman's Own Organics organic brown rice contains the nutrient rich bran layers which are rich in vitamins, minerals and beneficial fiber.
Q: What are chelated minerals and why does Newman's Own Organics use them?
A: By chelating, or joining minerals to a protein, they become more readily absorbed and available to the cells of the body. Our pet foods contain chelated minerals to provide maximum nutrient availability.
Q: What are antioxidants and does Newman's Own Organics contain any?
A: Antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C and E are compounds that neutralize free radicals that may cause cell dysfunction, genetic damage, premature aging and degenerative changes in the body. Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of antioxidants in slowing aging and loss of cognitive function in animals. Newman's Own Organics pet foods contain high levels of antioxidants to optimize health and vitality.
Q: My current pet food contains minerals such as sulfates and oxides. What are these and why are they not found in Newman's Own Organics pet foods?
A: Sulfates and oxides are inexpensive, inorganic forms of minerals that are used in most pet foods. For example iron oxide, often used as a source of iron and to color pet foods, is really "rust". Oxides and sulfates are used by many manufacturers because they are inexpensive. Sulfates and oxides are not readily absorbable by the dog or cat. Newman's Own Organics uses the highly absorbable chelates and proteinates as their source of minerals.
Q: My current pet food states that the ingredients are human grade. Does Newman's Own Organics use human grade materials? Why isn't that written on the bag?
A: Newman's Own Organics organic pet food uses human grade and fit for human consumption ingredients such as natural chicken and organic grains. The AAFCO Board (Association of American Feed Control Officials), which is the regulatory agency for animal foods, actually prohibits the printing of ''Human Grade'' on pet food packaging.
Q: Do you use menadione sodium bisulfite complex as source of vitamin K?
A: Although menadione is an ingredient approved for use in organic foods and by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), Newman's Own Organics pet foods do not contain it.
Q: What are organic ingredients?
A: The word organic refers to the food and also to how the food is produced.
The growing or raising of organic food is based on a system of feeding and
farming that mimics natural ecosystems and maintains and replenishes the fertility
of the soil.
Organic foods are produced without the use of chemical pesticides, are minimally
processed and are not irradiated nor contain any chemical additives or preservatives.
Q: Are the ingredients in Newman's Own Organics organic pet food organic?
A: Yes. More than 70% of all ingredients used in the formulation of all Newman's Own Organics
foods are organic.
Q: What are the benefits of feeding organic dog and cat foods?
A: Feeding organic foods eliminates the buildup of residues of chemical additives,
preservatives, pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides which have been clinically
proven to have adverse health effects on dogs, cats and in fact all animals
Q: Is Newman's Own Organics organic pet food made in organically certified manufacturing plants?
If yes, who is the certifying agent?
A: Yes. Newman's Own Organics dry and canned food plants have been certified by Oregon Tilth.
Certified organic means that the food has been grown and handled according
to strict organic standards which are enforced by independent third-party
state or private organizations.
Certification includes inspections of farm fields and processing facilities,
detailed record keeping and periodic testing of soil, water and produce to
ensure that growers and processors are meeting Oregon Tilth’s strict
Q: I have read that feeding organic foods is advantageous for the environment.
Is that true?
A: The ingredients used in Newman's Own Organics pet foods are grown without the use of herbicides
and pesticides in a crop that are rotated. This reduces the chemical contamination
of our environment. This also prevents the land from becoming depleted, thereby
producing more nutritious foods.
Current research suggests that organic soils actually scrub the atmosphere of global warming gases by capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide and converting it to soil material.
Q: Are any of the ingredients in Newman's Own Organics organic pet foods genetically modified?
A: No. Newman's Own Organics pet food does not contain any genetically modified ingredients (GMO).
As part of Oregon Tilth certification process, they do
not allow the use of any genetically modified seeds, processing ingredients,
fertilizers or any other input that may have been produced using recombinant
DNA methods. Also, Oregon Tilth requires certified growers and processors
to report any detectable GMO residue found in any ingredients.
Q: How is Newman’s Own Organics organic pet food cooked?
A: Newman’s Own Organics dry foods are cooked at low temperatures
to help retain important nutrients, yet provide a thorough cooking. Canned foods
are cooked under specifications set and regulated by governmental agencies
to insure safety.
Q: How is Newman's Own Organics pet food preserved?
A: Newman's Own Organics pet foods are preserved with natural antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E (mixed tocopherols). All Newman's Own Organics' ingredients are tested to be free of any chemical preservatives, such as BHA, BHT, and ethoxyquin.
Q: Do I need to add supplements to the Newman's Own Organics pet foods?
A: All Newman's Own Organics pet foods are complete and balanced and meet all the nutritional
guidelines set by the AAFCO board (The Association of American Feed Control
Officials, which governs all animal foods). Therefore, Newman's Own Organics pet foods contain
all required supplements. Because of the heat of cooking, many veterinarians
and animal health practitioners are recommending supplementation with natural,
uncooked supplements. Please consult your veterinarian for guidance.
Q: Where can I purchase Newman's Own Organics organic pet foods?
A: Visit our store locator for a list of retail stores in your area. Or you may
contact our customer service staff.
Q: My cats need to be on a low ash, low magnesium diet. Will feeding them
Newman's Own Organics pet foods meet these requirements?
A: Yes. Newman's Own Organics dry and canned foods meet the requirements for ash and magnesium
levels which have been clinically proven to be the best for the health of your
cats urinary tract.
Q: I have read that dogs are carnivores and therefore require a meat diet.
Is that true?
A: Actually wild dogs are more like omnivores than cats, which are obligate
carnivores. This means that dogs do need to have herbs, grains and vegetables
as part of their daily diet for pH and nutritional balance.The food is also formulated to maintain a slightly acidic urine pH.
Q: I have read that cats are carnivores and therefore require a meat diet. Is
A: Cats are obligate carnivores, therefore could live on meat alone. Vegetables and grains are provided to add beneficial fiber and to help adjust the pH levels. Newman's Own Organics pet foods contains higher than the required amount of meat protein than listed in AAFCO’s nutrient profiles. Most importantly Newman's Own Organics pet foods contain human grade natural chicken as the protein source. This is the highest quality meat for animals and contains all the necessary and essential amino and fatty acids required by your cat.
Q: How often do I have to feed my animal?
A: The amount of food fed depends on the age and size of your animal. Generally,
puppies and kittens should be fed three to four times a day until about
six months old. Reduce the number of meals to two per day after six months
of age. Use the feeding guidelines on the package, however each animal is
an individual and you should observe your animal to see if your feeding amounts
is causing weight gain or loss and then make the necessary adjustments.
Q: Can I feed my cat vegetarian food only?
A: Taurine, an amino acid is essential for cats because they cannot produce
enough and therefore must receive it from their food. Taurine is found only
in meat and therefore cats cannot and should not eat only vegetarian foods.
The same is true for arachadonic acid, an essential fatty acid for cats. Dogs
and most other mammals can produce arachidonic acid from linoleic acids however
cats cannot. Arachadonic acid is only present in meat and fish.
Q: Why is it recommended that I feed less Newman's Own Organics pet foods than my supermarket
brand of food?
A: Newman's Own Organics pet foods, being organic and using only whole ingredients is much more
nutrient dense than most pet foods. Newman's Own Organics pet foods contain no fillers, by-products,
processed grains or indigestible plant or animal fiber and therefore less
food is required to meet their nutrient needs.
Q: I would like to begin feeding Newman’s Own Organics pet food to my dog and
cat. I have read that if this is done too fast that intestinal upsets and
diarrhea may result. What are your recommendations?
A: We recommend mixing Newman’s Own Organics pet foods with your current pet food over
a period of approximately (2-3) weeks to guarantee that your dog or cat’s digestive
system adjusts to the new food. Research and feeding trials have proven that
a dog or cat’s gastro-intestinal system may take four to six weeks or longer
to adjust to a new food. It is important to remember that Newman’s Own Organics pet food ingredients such as fresh natural chicken and organic brown rice, being whole foods, may be richer and may be more nutritionally concentrated than your current food.. Therefore this transition time of 2-3 weeks is necessary
to allow your dog or cat’s digestive tract to adjust to our foods. If digestive
upsets do occurs, simply transition more slowly.
Also, please remember that your dog or cat is an individual with individual
needs. We always recommend that you contact your veterinarian if your animal
has persistent digestive upsets.
Q: When should I begin to feed the Advanced Formula to my dog or cat?
A: As a general rule, you should switch from Newman's Own Organics Adult Formula dog or cat food to the Advanced Formula at 6-7 years of age depending on your individual pet's health and life style. Cats can be 9-11 before switching to the Advanced Cat formula.
Q: Can I feed my cat Newman's Own Organics dog food?
A: No. Cats will become undernourished if they are fed dog food. Cats require
different amounts and types of essential nutrients such as taurine, arachadonic
acid and vitamins. Cats are true (obligate) carnivores, and therefore require
a high meat diet, much higher requirement than dogs. However, on occasion,
it will not cause your cat any ill effects.
Q: My veterinarian has recommended
a prescription type of diet for my animal. Can I feed Newman's Own Organics instead?
A: Newman's Own Organics does not make prescription diets, however, one of the Newman's Own Organics formulas
may match your animal’s special dietary needs. You should check with
your veterinarian to see if one of the Newman's Own Organics diets is right for your animal.
Q: What is the shelf life of your Newman's Own Organics pet food?
A: Each bag of Newman's Own Organics dog and cat dry food is coded with an expiration date which is 10 months from the day it is manufactured. Newman’s Own Organics dog and cat canned food has an expiration date which is 2 years from the day it is manufactured. However, just like all natural and organic foods Newman's Own Organics is affected by the weather and the environment. For this reason Newman's Own Organics recommends that you always feed your animal food that is as fresh as possible.
Q: How should I store the Newman's Own Organics food?
A: It is important to protect Newman's Own Organics dog and cat food from excess exposure to
bright light, moisture and heat. It is recommended that you store the dry
food in its original bag, tightly closed in a cool, dry, dark place. You can
refrigerate to extend the shelf life and freshness. Newman's Own Organics canned foods are vacuum
sealed however, they also should be protected from excessive cold and heat.
Opened cans should be covered and stored in the refrigerator. Bring to room
temperature or add a little hot water to renew the flavor.
Q: What are antioxidants and what are their function in Newman's Own Organics dog and cat food?
A: Antioxidants are required to prevent Newman's Own Organics dog and cat food, especially fat,
from becoming rancid. Most pet food manufacturers rely on chemical antioxidants
such as BHA, BHT and Ethoxyquin to preserve their foods. Clinical studies
suggest that the long term feeding of chemical antioxidants could have adverse
health effects on both animals and humans. Newman's Own Organics uses only natural antioxidants
such as vitamin E, C and the herb rosemary to preserve their dog and cat foods.
Q: I have read that feeding dry or canned food that is high in fat can cause
diseases such as pancreatitis and fatty liver. Is this true and does Newman’s Own Organics
pet foods contain excessively high levels of fat?
A: Pancreatitis and Fatty Liver (Hepatic Lipidosis) are diseases that can
be caused by a variety of factors such as infection, exposure to toxins, stress
and improper diet. Pet food that is very high in saturated fats can certainly be a factor in the causes of these
diseases. Newman’s Own Organics pet foods are formulated with required levels of fats from highly digestible sources at levels that meet the fat requirements for growing adult and mature dogs and cats. Always consult your veterinarian if your animal is experiencing symptoms of disease.
Q: I have read that feeding dry or canned food that is high in carbohydrates
can cause diseases such as diabetes. Is this true and does Newman’s Own Organics pet
foods contain excessively high levels of carbohydrates?
A: Diabetes is a chronic degenerative disease of dogs and cats that can be
caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, stress and the feeding of
excess amounts of simple carbohydrates. Many pet foods are loaded with simple
carbohydrates (sugars) such as white flour, sucrose, glucose and fructose.
These are cheap, highly processed sources of carbohydrates that can overload
and stress the pancreas leading to diabetes.
Newman’s Own Organics pet foods are formulated using only whole grains such as organic brown rice, millet and sorghum. These whole grains are rich in complex carbohydrates, which are good sources of energy and are gentle on the pancreas and the digestive system.
Q: Is Newman’s Own Organics pet food suitable for animals with urinary tract problems?
A: Urinary tract problems such as infection (Cystitis) and stones (Urolithiasis)
have been linked to the feeding of dog and cat foods that are high in ash
(particularly magnesium) and lower in amino acids causing a higher urinary
pH. Newman’s Own Organics dog and cat foods are formulated with all the essential amino
acids to produce a normal, acid urine.
Q: Why does my dog have gas when eating Newman’s Own Organics pet food?
A: A small amount of gas is normal. Excessive gas (flatulence) can be caused
by a number of factors such as changing to a new diet too quickly, overeating
or eating too fast. If your animal has recently switched to Newman’s Own Organics pet
food, please follow our guidelines on the package and the gas should disappear
on its own within a few weeks. Also, you may feed smaller meals more frequently.
If the gas persists, you should speak with your veterinarian to rule out any
Q: My dog has loose stools. Is it from the Newman’s Own Organics pet food?
A: Diarrhea and loose stools can be associated with many causes. Over eating
and switching to Newman’s Own Organics pet food too quickly are common reasons. Overfeeding,
especially in puppies and kittens can cause loose stools because the Newman’s Own Organics
pet foods are nutrient rich and more concentrated than most pet foods, which
are often filled with by-products and fillers. Please see our FAQ on switching
to Newman’s Own Organics pet foods.
As far as overeating, Newman’s Own Organics pet foods are nutrient dense and highly digestible.
Therefore, you generally will have to feed less than your previous brand.
When your dog or cat eats too much food, too quickly, it can overload his or
her system resulting in the loose stools. Simply cut back to the recommended
feeding levels and the stool should return to normal in one to two days. If
loose stool persists, consult your veterinarian.
Q: I've changed my animal to Newman’s Own Organics pet food and since then his stool has
increased in volume and is more frequent. Should I be concerned about this?
A: Normally, when you change your animal’s diet, the volume and frequency
of the stool may changes. Usually after one to two months, the stool volume
and frequency will stabilize. Normally dogs and cats will move their bowels
twice daily, generally 2-4 hours after meals.
Newman’s Own Organics pet foods contain whole organic grains that are rich in soluble,
beneficial fiber. While this fiber will help to maintain good intestinal health
and help prevent diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes and
cancer, it may increase volume or cause more frequent movements (generally
three times per day).
Q: My veterinarian has instructed me to feed my cats a low ash, low magnesium
food. Does feeding Newman’s Own Organics cat food meet these needs?
A: Newman’s Own Organics dry and canned foods meet these requirements for low ash and
Q: What Is Taurine and why is it important for my cats?
A: Taurine is an essential amino acid for cats that is found in meat protein.
It is a dietary requirement for a good eyesight, heart function, digestion
(production of bile salts) and proper reproduction. Taurine is essential in
cats because it is required by the heart and eyes however it is neither manufactured
nor available in the body. Therefore, cats need meat to fulfill this requirement
(obligate carnivores), as Taurine is only found in animal proteins such as
Q: My animal has chronic skin problems. Will feeding Newman’s Own Organics pet food help?
A: It has been clinically proven that foods and nutrients such as protein,
fat, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are important for the health of the
skin and hair coat. The skin is the largest organ of the body and serves to
prevent water, minerals and heat from leaving and poisons and bacteria from
entering the body. The skin is also an organ of elimination and like the bowel
and kidney will rid the body of metabolic wastes.
Newman’s Own Organics pet foods which are loaded with high quality nutrients, vitamins, minerals
and antioxidants will help to keep the skin cells healthy and vibrant leading
to a properly functioning and healthy looking skin and coat.
Q: I have been told by my breeder that the source of protein in pet food is
more important than the amount of protein. Is this true?
A: Newman’s Own Organics has chosen human grade natural chicken (no hormones, antibiotics, pesticides) as the main source of protein for both their dog and cat foods. Natural chicken is high grade protein and contains no by-products such as feathers and tendons.
Q: Can I feed Newman’s Own Organics pet food to my pregnant or lactating animal?
A: Yes, Newman’s Own Organics adult dog and cat foods are formulated to meet
all the AAFCO requirements for pregnant or lactating animals.
Q: My animal has food allergies. Can she be fed Newman’s Own Organics pet food?
A: Newman’s Own Organics pet foods contain the highest quality organic ingredients with no
chemical additives, preservatives, coloring agents, dyes or by products. These
types of additives that are found in many commercial pet foods have been clinically
linked to food allergies in both dogs and cats.
Food allergies or any adverse reactions to foods can be disease conditions
and it is Newman’s Own Organics recommendations that you consult with your family veterinarian
for the proper diagnosis and treatment plan. You should also speak with your
veterinarian regarding a dietary recommendation for the condition.
Q: I am feeding a competitive brand of food and notice that the food contains fruits.
I have always been taught that fruits are a rich source of vitamins, minerals
and antioxidants. Why doesn’t Newman’s Own Organics use fruits in their formulas?
A: You are correct - fruits are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
They also are a rich source of simple sugars such as fructose and sucrose.
When you mix sugar with meat protein such as beef or chicken along with stomach
acid, a fermentation process is started which will cause excessive production
of gas and incomplete digestion of food. This can set the stage for chronic
irritation of the stomach and intestines and result in upsets such as vomiting
and diarrhea and can eventually lead to a disease process. For this reason,
Newman’s Own Organics chooses antioxidant rich vegetables, which are quite low in simple
sugars and high in naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
