Freeze Dried and Dehydrated Pet Foods

  • Freeze dried or dehydrated foods often claim they are “raw” but during the dehydration/freeze dry process most companies heat the food, therefore it is not truly raw.
  • Even though heat is used, dehydrated and freeze dried foods have not been processed with high heat-meaning much more nutritional value has been retained.
  • Needs to be rehydrated. Then it will be about 70-80% water—much better than dry food, and fits the moisture profile of a more natural diet.
  • Usually contain high quality ingredients than dry kibbles, but these foods often still contain grains and starches in the form of rice or tapioca.
  • The origin of the ingredients in dehydrated and freeze dried foods is often unknown.
  • Freeze dried and dehydrated food is a healthier option than kibble or canned foods for pet owners unwilling to feed raw.
