Beneful Grain Free dog food is made by Purina, a company that’s been around for 80 years.  Purina carries a wide variety of dog food options, including specialized foods specific to canine conditions like allergies and joint problems.

Amazing Options Within the Beneful Product Line Include:


Incredibites are smaller kibble designed for smaller dogs. This product is fortified with 23 vitamins and minerals and uses real beef as its first ingredient.

Healthy Smile

If you’re like me, you’re probably going to give your dog a treat once in a while, so why not give them the kind that helps their teeth? Healthy Smiles comes in natural and artificial peanut butter flavour with an accent of parsley to help the breath.  Purina adds calcium to this recipe to support dogs’ teeth and bones.

Healthy Weight

Our dogs are gaining weight.  A lot of it! For that reason, many dog food companies including Purina and Fromm Dog Food have created formulas with fewer calories.

Prepared Meals

As much as I would love the time to prepare food for my dog, it’s just not feasible with my schedule. Prepared meals are a convenient way to substitute a home-cooked meal once in a while. Personally, I wouldn’t feed these every day, but they’re perfect for traveling or just to have on hand.

Purina Beyond Natural Dog Food

Beyond is a registered trademark of Purina high-quality towards natural foods with added supplements.

Examples of the Purina Beyond Natural Dog Food Line Include:

Beyond Simply 9

The Simply 9 Formula uses limited ingredients with a focus on high-quality protein.

Beyond Grain Free

This is exactly as it sounds.  You won’t find any grains in this blend.  In fact, this particular blend is gluten free and does not contain any wheat, soy, or corn.

Flavor Profile of Beneful Grain Free (and other) Products








The Pro Plan line of Purina dog foods offers another variety of specific food options including the following:


Specialized wet and dry dog food that accommodates all life stages and breeds.


This is what I would call the “everyday” food for dogs.


This blend is designed to improve cognitive function and memory in older dogs. Purina has added botanical oils and other supplements designed to help older dogs retain mental alertness.


Active dogs need a diet that builds and strengthens muscles.  This formula has the perfect protein ratio for performance


Sensitive skin in dogs is a common condition, particularly among certain breeds. Purina has added a special blend of antioxidants designed to boost immune function. With improved immune function, it’s thought your dog might be better equipped to handle allergens.


Dogs aren’t able to handle drastic dietary changes, at least not quickly. Some dogs have particularly sensitive stomachs with gastrointestinal issues including constipation and diarrhea.

This formula is designed to be a little easier on your dog’s stomach and includes Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids with zinc.  This is an all natural product with no corn, wheat, or soy.


Purina One SmartBlend

I urge you to visit the Fromm website before making any dog food choices.   You will learn something about the family and the values they bring to what they do.  It’s not the same ole’ story you’ve heard before. These folks come from a long line of entrepreneurs, immigrants who had to work hard to get where they are today.  Check them out today.

When you go to their website and read their history, you can’t help but feel a level of trust. 

Apology – Disclaimer

Before I show you all of the amazingly crafted recipes the Fromm Family has created, I want to offer them an apology.

You see, the Fromm family prides itself on being a family-run operation.  For that reason, they would prefer that you purchase your dog food from other family-owned businesses rather than the big-box chain stores. I totally get it.

However, as an Amazon affiliate, I have a responsibility to show products through Amazon.  You, of course, can choose to shop anywhere you want.
