Effective June 2019, Primal initiated an ingredient change to all products in the Primal Nib and Chip Jerky line including Chicken, Turkey, Pork and Beef. We incorporated the use of Certified Organic Blackstrap Molasses in place of Certified Organic Honey. This ingredient change was implemented for two reasons:
- The availability of Certified Organic Honey from our supplier became limited.
- We are able to deliver a nutritionally superior treat as Certified Organic Blackstrap Molasses contains water soluble macro and micro-nutrients such as Iron, Magnesium, Calcium, Selenium and Vitamin B6 as well as a uniquely high level of naturally occurring minerals.
Due to the fact that the natural color pigmentation of Black Strap Molasses is darker than that of honey, our Nibs and Chips Treats will appear darker in color than previously produced format.
To further clarify our process, the use of ingredients such as molasses in jerky-style products not only provides nutrient enhancements, but are also critical to maintaining the shelf stability of such products without the use of artificial and or chemical preservatives.
