Wet food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung

Fleischsaftgarung means that fresh meat is only cooked in its own meat juice in a vacuum - just like in the kitchen. Meat juice is a nutrient-rich liquid that contains proteins, creatine and iron. Thanks to the vacuum and the cooking container, the wet food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung is ready after only a short cooking time.

The special characteristics of wet food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung

Naturally nutrient-rich like BARF

Fleischsaftgarung is a preparation method that preserves all the nutrients of the meat.

Nothing is lost in a vacuum! Therefore, all natural vitamins and nutrients of the meat are preserved during the Fleischsaftgarung. The low temperature during the Fleischsaftgarung also preserves the positive properties of the vitamins and nutrients. Therefore, dog food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung is as nutrient-rich as BARF.

This is also confirmed by the daily recommended feeding amount of dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung. It indicates the amount a dog must eat to cover its daily requirement of nutrients. The recommended BARF daily requirement (two to three percent of body weight) corresponds approximately to the recommended feeding amount of dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung.

Especially tasty

The Fleischsaftgarung requires a vacuum and under vacuum all natural flavours are preserved - this is not the case when boiling, baking and roasting.

During the Fleischsaftgarung the meat is cooked in its own meat juice alone. Because no cooking water or broth is added, the natural flavours are not diluted.

The natural fat content of the fresh meat is also a flavour carrier that enhances the intensity of the meat flavour of the wet food - so neither flavour enhancers nor attractants or flavourings are needed.

Quickly digestible and effectively digestible

Meat prepared with Fleischsaftgarung is quicker for dogs to digest and more effectively utilised than any other food. Domestication has changed the dog's digestive system little. Then and now, meat is the dog's first source of food.

In addition, proteins denatured by heating are generally digested more quickly and converted into energy better than the proteins of raw meat. This is true for both humans and animals.*

Very productive

The amount of food that meets the needs of dog food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung corresponds to that of BARF. Compared to most wet foods, it often appears to be considerably less, because the volume of wet food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung is not increased by cooking water or broth.

If the dog needs less food to become full, this relieves the stomach and the digestive system, which has a positive effect on long-term health.

Beneficial for muscle building

Meat is known to be one of the best foods for building muscle because it has a high protein content. Meat proteins have a much higher biological value for dogs than for humans because the dog's digestive system has changed only slightly during domestication. It can, then as now, convert meat into energy for muscle building much better than any other food.

Fleischsaftgarung does not work with meat meal and that is a good thing because meat meal has a very high level of processing and would be marked deep red in the Nutri Score. Meat meal also contains a high ash content and therefore has a lower protein digestibility than meat prepared with Fleischsaftgarung.
