Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2013 -- On July 24, Organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on a press release discussing the benefits of the olive oil in pet food.
According to a July 22nd article published by Market Watch titled “Olive Oil Among Key Ingredients for Tuscan Natural Pet Food Products' Healthy Pet Food,” pet food producer Pyramid Pet Products was formed to produce healthy food for pets. One of their lines, Tuscan Natural Pet Food Products, accomplishes this by adding extra virgin olive oil in the ingredients.
As stated in the article, olive oil is one of the staples of the Mediterranean diet because “it lowers cholesterol, helps digests proteins better, works in the pancreas to prevent sugar spikes and lows, fights diabetes, is a natural anti-inflammatory, and aids in the prevention of bone density loss.”
The President of Pyramid Pet Products, Matt Boyer, says in the article that since there are so many health benefits in extra virgin olive oil, there is no reason why it shouldn’t be incorporated into pet food as well.
Boyer also explains why most other pet food producers do not use extra virgin olive oil. “We began researching why other pet foods don't use olive oil and found they were using cheaper polyunsaturated fats.”
Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium, is happy to see that different varieties of olive oil, like Tuscan olive oil, are making their way into the diets of more people and pets. She says, “Research has shown how olive oil can help lower cholesterol, help prevent heart disease and even halt the progression of some types of cancer. I believe that adding extra virgin olive oil to pet food is a great way to promote a healthier diet in animals.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
