    Unique protein ingredients may be necessary to minimize background levels of certain minerals. Other steps taken to minimize background mineral contamination include the use of reagent grade minerals when necessary or omission of certain ingredients. Specialized mineral premixes may be used in these diets, or minerals are added individually to the diet in order to control the level of specific minerals.

    With the exception of sodium, it is necessary to use refined ingredients to achieve the lowest possible levels of minerals in a diet.

    From this mineral deficient base, various levels of minerals can be added back. Some formulas adjust multiple minerals, and other related nutrients.

    Contact us to discuss other possibilities for the minerals listed above, and for those minerals not listed here.
