News from the Founders

To our extended furfam,

We are delighted to be sharing with you the final schedule for availability of our enhanced raw recipes and new steamed products. These changes were first mentioned on March 21st, and we appreciate your patience while we organized the transition. The wait is over and today we announce availability dates.

In our previous News from the Founders communications – archived on the website here – we advised you of the following:

  1. Enhancements to the recipe
  2. A new ‘gently steamed’ version of the recipes, in addition to the raw version
  3. Price protection for customers with logins created ‘before’ June 10th

Enhanced Recipe
The short version: we’ve removed all the digestible plant matter from the recipes and increased the use of animal-based nutrients.

Enhanced Recipe

For more details, please refer to the ‘News from the Founders – March 21st’ email, located here.

New Gently Steamed OptionsGently Steamed
In addition to enhancing the recipe, we are excited to announce that we are introducing a new line of gently steamed products. Using the new enhanced recipe, we steam cook in final packaging *rather than* high pressure processed (HPP).

The gentle steaming process is more time intensive than traditional high temperature, canning, or kettle cooking, but preserves the nutrients while still providing an USDA accepted pathogen kill step.

Price Protection
Creating a Balanced Blends Login before June 10th will secure current (May 2019) pricing. Customers creating a Balanced Blends login after June 10th will receive a small price increase of $0.50/lb. incurred by the enhanced recipe. Visit the website now to verify you have a Balanced Blends Login and qualify for the price protection.
















NOTE: Being on our email list doesn’t necessarily mean you have a login! You must verify that you can login with a password, here to ensure your login account.

When will the new products be available?

  • The new Species Balanced™ Steamed products will be available from June 10th.
  • Species Balanced™ Raw will be available from June 17th.
  • The original recipe Balanced Raw products will be available while stocks last.



New Website
On June 6th you will see our new website (“Project BB3”, for the Star Wars fans). We’ve created something we believe is far simpler while also hosting more, better organized, information. This in addition to the first of some new tools aimed at making your life easier, for example the portioning and shipping calculators. We hope you like it.

As always, please reach out to with any questions, comments, or concerns.


John and Christina,
The Balanced Blends Founders
