What is freeze-dried dog food?
Freeze-drying is a method that preserves raw ingredients e.g. fresh meat to produce a dog food product that is safe, lightweight, and can last on the shelf. Freeze-dried dog food is technically full of nutrients, and is raw.
What are the benefits of feeding freeze dried dog food?
Well, there are so many pros! Firstly, it is a minimally processed source of nutrition for dogs. It is definitely appealing to pet parents who are seeking an alternative to plain kibble. It’s also excellent in taste, and can be used as a complete meals for picky eaters, or as a tasty add on for all dogs to introduce variety into their diet. The taste of meat ingredients is preserved, and so is the nutritional value.
Freeze-dried dog food also contains high-quality proteins such as turkey, salmon, and chicken, which all deliver excellent nutrition. For a dog, a protein-rich diet will always be the ultimate preference because high-quality meat ingredients deliver a wonderful taste and aroma. Protein is required for the maintenance and growth of all body tissues. At a molecular level, protein supplies amino acids required for the body to build up hair, muscles, skin, tendons, cartilage, and ligaments.
How is dog food freeze dried?
Dog food is a special form of drying that gets rid of moisture at very low temperatures. The raw ingredients are frozen at first and then placed in a strong vacuum which converts the water in the food into vapour. Humans love freeze-dried foods too! Some examples are instant coffee or cereal with freeze-dried berries.
Will freeze-drying affect the nutritional content of the food?
Freeze-drying actually preserves more of the nutritional content of raw ingredients as opposed to other methods such as dehydrating or cooking pet food. As raw meat ingredients are freeze-dried, it helps to preserve the wholesome nutrition that is present.
