Benefits of Raw Pet Food
What does "raw food" mean?
Raw foods are becoming extremely popular due to its ability to create a nutritionally superior pet who thrives. The key component to raw food is the enzymes which assist in the digestive process and help with just about every metabolic process. Enzymes are denatured when exposed to heat over 117 degrees F so anything cooked above that temperature has little to no enzymes. There is also an abundance of micronutrients and phytochemicals that are key to the health of your pet.
Why does Raw Food Work?
There are two main reasons raw food works. First, the ingredients and second, the minimal processing. We use only high-quality, whole fresh foods. This is in comparison to kibble diets which typically use meat meals which are basically meat in a powdered form. It gets that way after heating it at such high temperatures and for such a long time, all the moisture is gone. These ͞dog food͟ ingredients lack the micronutrients, enzymes, and phytochemicals that fresh food provides. Before a kibble company even starts their processing that involves high heat and extrusion, they are using ingredients that are overly processed and devoid of nutrients.
