High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) and Raw Dog Food
Colorado Top Dog and Mile High Raw offers the best raw dog food available today. We avoid all dog food products that have been cooked/lightly cooked or processed using cold pressure or high pressure pasteurization.
Undesirable Raw Dog Food Options
Further processing through cooking, extruded pellets (dry dog food/kibble), or high pressure pasteurization (essentially cooking through pressure) degrades the nutrition in dog food products. These processes also diminish the dog foods palatability. Side by side, dogs would choose a wholesome, raw meat dog food over any other product available on the market. If otherwise, your dog is conditioned to a poor quality product and isn’t receiving the level of nutrition they deserve and require for a healthy existence.
High Pressure Pasteurization Pitfalls
The HPP process easily degrades your pet’s end product. In our experience there is a loss of nutrition, lipid oxidation, phthalates likely transferred and dangerous spores are still alive post pasteurization. How is this the logical choice for dog food products? These products can also be considered organic. The only natural occurrence of this much pressure occurs far beneath the surface of the ocean. Think about the deepest parts of the ocean. We can barely visit these places with todays technology. Therefore, how can this be a logical solution for processing dog food? Not to mention organic dog food. Make smart choices for your dog. Choose a true, wholesome raw dog food. These are the only products that Mile High Raw’s shop carries. Offering good nutrition for your dog is the cornerstone to optimal health. A few months of good nutrition and you’ll never go back to a processed pet food.
