Neo Bites, a sustainable pet food startup founded to improve dog health and the pet food industry’s relationship with the environment, last month launched its first line of functional dog food toppers made from insect protein.
Neo Bites dog food toppers and treats are powered by insect protein, which is the only animal protein with a natural prebiotic and contains more omega-3s than salmon. Neo Bites products are hypoallergenic and made from whole food superfoods.
“Our products are designed to improve dogs’ lives and can satisfy even the most picky eaters,” said Neo Bites Co-founder Winslow Marshall. “Dog lovers can trust that our dog food toppers are filled with the nutrients that are missing from legacy pet food.”
Neo Bites is also improving the health of our environment. Insects produce virtually no greenhouse gases, while US pet meat consumption is a major contributor to meat’s environmental impact.
“Neo Bites is changing how we feed our dogs and steward our planet,” said Neo Bites Co-founder Wesley Cooper. “The pet food industry is traditionally a major environmental burden and contributor to climate change. If America’s dogs and cats had their own country, their meat consumption would rank fifth in the world. Meat production generates 25 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Our pets and their humans deserve better. We are accelerating the shift to sustainable animal nutrition.”
The Neo Bites lineup includes three formulations of insect protein dog food toppers that supercharge mealtime, each designed to address a specific functional need:
Health Aid Topper: Nutrient-dense topper designed to promote everyday vitality. Made with Super-Insect Blend, kale, oats, turmeric and kelp.
Digestive Aid Topper: Tasty, nutrient-dense and gentle enough to support gut health, firm poops and comfy tummies. Made with Super-Insect Blend, ginger, pumpkin, apple and oats.
Skin & Coat Aid Topper: Just the right combination for a thick and shiny coat, itch relief and healthy skin. Made with Super-Insect Blend, flaxseed and peanut.
Original Dog Treats: Gently oven baked, these treats are what dogs want and need. Made from Super-Insect Blend, peanut, pumpkin, oats, cinnamon and egg.
Neo Bites is made in small batches and the company is currently scaling to meet demand and planning to expand its product line.
