Freeze Dried and Dehydrated Pet Foods
- Freeze dried or dehydrated foods often claim they are “raw” but during the dehydration/freeze dry process most companies heat the food, therefore it is not truly raw.
- Even though heat is used, dehydrated and freeze dried foods have not been processed with high heat-meaning much more nutritional value has been retained.
- Needs to be rehydrated. Then it will be about 70-80% water—much better than dry food, and fits the moisture profile of a more natural diet.
- Usually contain high quality ingredients than dry kibbles, but these foods often still contain grains and starches in the form of rice or tapioca.
- The origin of the ingredients in dehydrated and freeze dried foods is often unknown.
- Freeze dried and dehydrated food is a healthier option than kibble or canned foods for pet owners unwilling to feed raw.
Canned Pet Foods
- Canned pet foods are processed with high heat and pressure, destroying many vital micro-nutrients.
- Canned pet foods use mostly synthetic vitamins to replace the micro-nutrients lost in the preserving process.
- Canned food typically contains protein derived from grains or grain by-products and sources such as corn gluten meal and wheat instead of protein from real meat.
- Canned pet foods contain flavor enhancers, sweeteners, and other artificial chemicals and preservatives.
- Canned food has a similar moisture content to raw foods (between 70 and 80%).
- The origin of the ingredients in canned foods are unknown.
Premium Dry Kibble
- Premium kibbles are processed with high heat and pressure which destroys many vital micro-nutrients the ingredients once contained.
- Premium kibbles use mostly synthetic vitamins and minerals to replace the micro-nutrients lost in the preserving process.
- Premium kibbles are loaded with carbohydrates (commonly soy, wheat, rice, corn, barley, potatoes, tapioca or starch) to serve as sources of energy and calories; they often use vegetables as their main source of protein.
- Premium kibbles contain a lot of additives including but not limited to: toxic preservatives BHA, BHT, and ethoxyquin to guarantee a 12-month shelf life, emulsifiers to bind fat and water, and artificial flavors and colors to improve appearance and palatability.
- The origin of the ingredients in kibble are unknown.
