TARWI POWDER is an ancient Peruvian super food seed and legume that is prized as one of the most nutritious and highest complete protein sources on earth, with 40% protein and 20% plant based Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid. Using TARWI POWDERas an Omega 3 and 6 addition to your pet's diet may help remove the risk of rancidity commonly associated with fish oils.

TARWI POWDER is grown and harvested in the rugged terrain of the Andean highland mountains, at altitudes over 12000 feet. Tarwi grows in some of the harshest conditions on the planet, enduring both extreme frost and heat cycles, and as a result of adapting to its challenging growing conditions, produces a nutrient dense profile that exceeds most foods placed in the gluten free cereal category, including quinoa and amaranth.

TARWI POWDER is rich in fiber, protein, antioxidants, amino acids, lysine, arginine, probiotics, trace macro and micro minerals including zinc, manganese, magnesium, copper, thiamine and folate and is a complete, sustainable and regenerative protein source.

In regulating circulation, Tarwi may help prevent clogged arteries related to conditional needs of angina, coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Arginine is also instrumental in regulating low density lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol) while promoting high density lipoprotein (HDL or good cholesterol).
