With more people looking to incorporate healthier diets into their pets' lives, there is no surprise that freeze dried treats have risen in popularity in recent years. These shelf stable, minimally processed treats pack a nutritious punch for pets.
If you are unsure about treating your pet to a freeze dried alternative, here are a few reasons to consider these simple, healthy snacks.
- Freeze drying preserves meat with no chemicals. When a treat is freeze dried, it is first flash frozen at a low temperature, and then the moisture is removed through a vacuum process. Because bacteria needs water to thrive, freeze dried treats are preserved in a safe way without the use of chemical preservatives or additives.
- Less ingredients, less guilt. Most freeze dried raw treats contain an absolute minimum of ingredients. With more pet parents concerned with allergies and additives, freeze dried treats offer a simple, nutritious option for both cats and dogs.
- Freeze dried meat has more nutrients. Because the heat of baking or dehydration kills off many of the nutrients that pets need, freeze drying provides a flavorful, healthy treat for our furry friends.
- More bang for the buck. Freeze drying removes water, which significantly reduces the size and weight of freeze dried treats. A 10oz bag of freeze dried treats equals 35oz of meat before the freeze drying process!
