Freeze-Dried vs. Dehydrated

Hey Palace Squad! Ava here, and I'm super excited to share with you the lowdown on freeze-dried vs. dehydrated pet treats. At Ava's Pet Palace, we believe in giving our furry friends the best, so let's dive into what makes these treats special and how they can benefit your pets.

Freeze-Dried Pet Treats: 
Freeze-drying is a method that preserves raw ingredients by removing moisture through a process of freezing and then sublimation. This method locks in all the natural nutrients and flavors.

Benefits of Freeze-Dried Pet Treats:
  • Nutrient Retention: The freeze-drying process keeps nearly all the nutrients intact, making these treats super healthy.
  • Long Shelf Life: These treats can last a long time without losing their quality.
  • Lightweight & Convenient: Perfect for on-the-go snacking, whether you're on a walk or a trip.
  • Intense Flavor: The natural flavors are intensified, making them irresistible to pets.
We have amazing freeze-dried options like our Turkey Poppers and Salmon Puffs. Our Turkey Poppers are packed with high-quality turkey and pumpkin, offering a fiber-rich, nutritious treat. The Salmon Puffs are made from wild-caught salmon, providing essential omega-3 fatty acids for a shiny coat and healthy skin.
Dehydrated Pet Treats: 
Dehydration removes moisture using low heat over a long period. This method also preserves the ingredients well without needing preservatives.

Benefits of Dehydrated Pet Treats:
  • Rich Flavors: Dehydration enhances the natural flavors, making the treats deliciously tempting.
  • Nutrient-Rich: While some nutrients may be lost, these treats still provide essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Ideal texture - the texture of dehydrated treats can range from chewy to crunchy them great for dental health, helping to clean your pet's teeth as they chew.
  • Long Shelf Life: Like freeze-dried treats, dehydrated ones also last long due to low moisture content.
One of our popular treats are our dehydrated Snappin' Salmon Crunchy Jerky, made from 100% wild-caught Alaskan salmon. It's a crunchy, protein-rich snack that's perfect for your dog's overall health.

Choosing the Right Treats for Your Pets
When deciding between freeze-dried and dehydrated treats, consider your pet's preferences and dietary needs:
  • Nutritional Needs: If you're looking for treats that retain maximum nutrition, freeze-dried options might be best.
  • Flavor Preferences: Dehydrated treats often have more concentrated flavors that some pets may prefer.
  • Texture: Freeze-dried treats are light and crispy, while dehydrated treats are chewy or crunchy.
  •  Convenience: Both types have long shelf lives, but freeze-dried treats are generally lighter and easier to carry.
