Frequently Asked Questions
How are freeze-dried dog treats made?
Dog treats that are freeze-dried are rapidly cooled at ultra-low temperatures then placed in a vacuum, where the temperature is raised slightly. The ice is then turned to gas through the process of sublimation. It is a frequently used method for many raw treats to preserve nutrients and reduce the amount of processing and preservatives required. Some freeze-dried food and treats may require rehydration before feeding to your dog.
How are air-dried and dehydrated dog treats made?
There are several different methods:
- Air-drying - companies like New Zealand based Ziwi use this method for their raw products. It is a gentle and slow process of preserving. The end result is an extremely nutrient-dense food, without the need for artificial preservatives, sugars and glycerines.
- Dehydrating - this is another method frequently used for raw treats. This method uses low temperatures to remove moisture slowly from the food, while preserving nutrients and taste.
