Why are the calories reduced in the recipes?

You will see that on some recipes, the calories were adjusted downwards, or upwards. This was due to ZIWI changing the measurement used to calculate energy, which is called modified Atwater (previously Atwater). The change of measurement was recommended by our industry consultants and is the format utilized most frequently in North America and by AAFCO. In changing to modified Atwater, our feeding guidelines will align more closely to other alternative-to-raw products in the market.
