A scientific and practical guide for formulating raw, cooked and pack recipes.
Built on the nutrition science foundations taught in the RFN Full Course.
The RFN Introduction to Formulation Course teaches you how to analyze, select and combine ingredients together to build a recipe based on your dog’s specific nutritional requirements. This course builds on the foundations in nutrition science covered in the Full Course, taking nutritional theory to practical formulation strategies.
Learn how to set up nutritional goals outside of basic nutrient requirements, how to assess and select ingredients based on their nutrient strengths and weaknesses, and the ideal way to build a recipe from the ground up. Several formulation example videos are included, which review different types of formulations - raw, cooked, pack, low calorie, single ingredient - from start to finish.
This is the audited version of the course and does not includes graded quizzes or assignments.
If you purchased an audited course but want to switch to a graded course, please contact Jenny (firstname.lastname@example.org). There are limited spots for certificate (graded) students available.
We recommend you take both this and the Full Course to benefit fully from each course. Please note that this is an introductory course and may not be sufficient for those interested in pursuing professional nutrition consulting.
