Health Benefits of Raw Freeze Dried Pet Treats
Freeze dried foods are sometimes called astronaut food because of their long shelf life. Soldiers and survivalists are already familiar with the practical benefits of real, long-lasting foods. Now, freeze dried foods are quickly becoming popular on the health food market because of their many health benefits. These benefits extend to what your pet eats too!
What Freeze Dried Means
Also known as instant freeze, lyophilisation or cryodesiccation, freeze drying uses low temperatures to create dehydration. Freeze drying differs from traditional dehydration in that no heat is used to evaporate the water. The process also involves lowered pressure and ice removal. During the low pressure stage is when the ice vaporizes, and drying occurs. Since the ice and moisture vaporize, there is no need to keep the food frozen after freeze drying is complete.
Freeze drying allows all the active nutrients of the original food to stay fresh and preserved without cooking or refrigeration.
One of the benefits of freeze dried food is that they can be rehydrated to bring them back to their original state. Simply adding water, milk, or broth can bring a freeze dried food back to its origins. While rehydrating is optional, some prefer the taste and texture of the original food. For pets with sensitive teeth, rehydrating can provide extra comfort while snacking.
Raw Diet Benefits for Pets
Pharma Hemp Complex Chicken and Salmon Pet Treats are made with real fresh chicken, and wild-caught Alaskan salmon that’s freeze dried in its natural raw state. Raw meats are what carnivores like cats and dogs crave the most in their everyday diet. This is why cats and dogs will often hunt, or bring you unexpected ‘presents’, even though they have plenty to eat at home!
While this shows your pets’ impressive natural hunting capabilities, no pet owner wants their companion eating wild, and disease ridden animals. Raw, freeze dried pet treats allow your furry friend to enjoy the real nutrition they crave, without the harmful side effects of raw meat they find in the wild.

Compared to traditional pet kibble, which can include starchy fillers, meat by-products, and harmful preservatives, freeze dried raw is the only way to go!
