Why Are Freeze-Dried Treats Healthy for Dogs and Cats?
Freeze-dried treats offer several benefits that make them a favourable choice over ultra-processed commercial treats for pets. Here are five reasons why freeze-dried treats are considered better:
1. Nutrient Retention
The freeze-drying process involves rapidly freezing the treats and then removing moisture. This gentle process helps preserve the natural nutrients, flavours, and aromas of the ingredients, ensuring optimal nutritional value for your pets.
2. Minimal Processing
Freeze-dried treats typically undergo minimal processing, without the need for excessive heat or chemicals. This helps maintain the integrity of the ingredients and reduces the risk of nutrient loss that can occur during extensive processing methods.
3. Longer Shelf Life
The moisture removal during freeze-drying significantly extends the shelf life of the treats without the need for preservatives. This allows you to conveniently store and use the treats over an extended period, while still providing your pets with fresh and nutritious rewards.
4. Enhanced Palatability
Freeze-dried treats have a concentrated flavour due to the removal of moisture. The intensified taste and aroma can be highly appealing to pets, making these treats more enticing and enjoyable for them.
5. Convenient and Portable
Freeze-dried treats are lightweight and have a low moisture content, making them convenient for travel and on-the-go situations. They are less prone to spoilage, crumbling, or causing messes compared to other types of treats, making them a practical choice for pet owners.
It’s important to note that while freeze-dried treats offer many benefits, it’s still essential to choose high-quality treats that are specifically formulated for your pet’s dietary needs.
How Does Freeze-Drying Work?
During the freeze-drying process, proteins are frozen and then the surrounding moisture is removed through sublimation, which involves converting ice directly into vapour without passing through a liquid phase. This process helps preserve the structure and integrity of the proteins while removing water.
When it comes to freeze-dried treats for your dog and cat, it’s crucial to remember that not all products are created equal. The quality and process involved in creating freeze-dried treats can vary significantly among different brands and manufacturers.
Select Raw Single Ingredients
Selecting quality proteins without preservatives, such as raw single ingredients, is important for several reasons:
High-quality proteins are rich in essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that are vital for the overall health and well-being of pets. Choosing raw single ingredients allows you to provide a more natural and unprocessed source of protein, preserving its nutritional value.
Raw single ingredients, especially those that are minimally processed, are generally more easily digestible for pets. They contain enzymes and natural compounds that aid in digestion and nutrient absorption, promoting optimal digestion and minimising the risk of digestive issues.
Allergies and Sensitivities
Some pets may have food allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients or additives commonly found in processed foods. By opting for raw single ingredients without preservatives, you have better control over the specific proteins you offer to your pet, reducing the likelihood of triggering adverse reactions.
Transparency and Control
Choosing quality proteins without preservatives provides transparency about the ingredients you’re feeding your pet, ensuring that you are aware of what goes into their diet.
Customisation and Variety
Raw single ingredients offer a variety of proteins to your pet’s diet. This can help prevent taste fatigue and provide a more well-rounded nutritional profile, as different proteins offering unique nutrients and flavours.
When choosing freeze-dried treats, remember that not all products are equal. Look for a brand like PetWell that shares your commitment to quality and transparency.
Select proteins that will give your pet the optimum benefits they need for their specific ailments. For example, if your pet suffers from inflammation, select a protein that is high in omega-3 fatty acids, like Green-Lipped Mussels, Sardines or Salmon Fillets.
