Is LaMer a natural diet?
LaMer is marketed as a specialty diet for allergies in S Korea. It contains only natural ingredients without artificial color, flavor and chemical preservatives. The food is preserved by grapefruit seed extract so it is better to store it in air-tight container or refrigerator after opening.
Presently, AAFCO’s definition of natural is:
a feed or feed ingredient derived solely from plant, animal or mined sources, either in its unprocessed state or having been subject to physical processing, heat processing, rendering, purification, extraction, hydrolysis, enzymolysis or fermentation, but not having been produced by or subject to a chemically synthetic process and not containing any additives or processing aids that are chemically synthetic except in amounts as might occur in good manufacturing practices.
However, most natural pet foods have added synthetic vitamins, minerals and trace elements. AAFCO recommended guidelines allow those products to be called natural provided that the synthesized ingredients used are limited to synthetic vitamin, mineral and trace nutrients only.
Since LaMer diet is made with ingredients from natural sources and does not contain synthetic ingredients other than vitamins and minerals, it is considered as a natural diet by AAFCO definition.
