It’s the best way of producing a dog food that preserves the nutritional integrity of the ingredients, that’s what. Standard extruded kibble dog food is pressure steam cooked at very high temperatures (140 degrees Celsius!) and then baked to remove moisture, losing many of the nutrients, to the extent that flavourings and additives have to be sprayed onto the food post-production.
Cold Pressed dog food is made by taking great ingredients (individually cooked at lower tempertures for optimum nutrient retention), drying them, mixing them, and pressing under low temperatures (40-44 degrees Celsius) to get a naturally softer, more dense, complete nutrition dog food.
SO THIS MAKES A DIFFERENCE?
Absolutely! The lower temperatures are the key to locking in natural enzymes and vitamins, as well as retaining fibre and molecular structures.
This gives us much more scope to include vegetables and botanicals that might normally lose their nutritional benefits in a standard extruded kibble process.
The result is we have created a dog food that is by design and by its nature, gentle on tummies and great for joint care.
