All of our freeze-dried meats are sourced from the USA. All of our animals NEVER have any added hormones, GMO, or antibiotics.
Our freeze-dried process starts by running the meats through a dicer, and then we immediately run them through an IQF machine. By doing this, it locks in all of the nutrition very quickly by freezing it down to -40°. It also creates a very small ice crystal in the meat. A lot of companies out there skip this step, and it creates a large ice crystal which makes the product more crumbly and a lot softer. It also doesn’t retain as much of its nutritional quality that way. You will notice with ours there are very small holes which is where the ice crystals were sublimated out of the product during the freeze-dried process. That is a sign of high-quality freezing prior to the freeze-drying.
From there, the meat has put the product into our free strain chamber, and run it on ideal time and temperature depending on the product. It is a very gentle dry, and the product retains about 97% of its original nutritional value.
