Pet Nutrition

Do you know who is formulating your pet food?

Our in-house pet nutritionists play a crucial role in the creation of Beyond® dog food. From choosing ingredients to overseeing every step of the formulation process, they optimize the way ingredients and essential nutrients come together to support your pet’s long-term health and well-being. No one is more qualified than a pet nutritionist to formulate and monitor the food you give your pet each day.

5 Steps to

As a nutritionist at Purina, my role is to ensure that the main meal products we put on the market are 100% complete and balanced and that they promote good health to cats and dogs throughout their life.

I have studied animal physiology and biochemistry at the Paris University and completed a PhD on Nutrition physiopathology. In the development of Beyond®, I carefully selected ingredients for their high quality. I worked on the recipe with the Product Specialist to find the correct levels of inclusion of these ingredients to design a product that provides all the nutrients dogs need and even goes further to offer a food with premium nutrition quality.
