RAW AND FREEZE DRIED CAT FOOD - Pet Stuff
Freeze-dried raw pet foods are a small but rapidly growing segment of the pet food industry, said Maria Lange, GfK business group director. However, the now-niche category could expand to become up to 10 percent of the market.

My hedgie Squee Bean is a very picky eater and very tiny: she weighs less than a pound and fits comfortably in the palm of one hand (when she balls up, which is often). I have fed her different varieties of cat food (recommended food for hedgies) and none of them were a real hit...she would eat them, but not with much enthusiasm...
I tried Primal Freeze Dried Cat Food entirely as an experiment; we picked up a Starter Pak at Dave's Pet Food store near us in Agawam, MA. She turned her nose up at the frozen raw food; wouldn't even touch it. Perhaps it was just too different from what she was used to...she doesn't do well with change...
Then I tried a small piece of the freeze dried cat food...I think it was turkey...she tore into it with gusto! I was impressed; and decided to switch her over to Primal Freeze Dried Turkey Formula for Cats; she still gets a tiny amount of the regular crunchy food in her dish, as hedgie tummies don't do well with sudden changes, but I plan to phase out the crunchy food eventually and feed strictly Primal Freeze-Dried. I'm not sure if she will like the other flavors of Primal Freeze Dried as well as the turkey, but I can always get small packages to let her try them.
One thing with Squee, she does NOT like the freeze dried formula re-moisturized. Turns her nose up. And because she is so tiny, I give her about 1/3 of a cube a day...which vanishes as soon as her sensitive nose detects it...
She has more energy, is less grumpy, and sleeps much less than she used to...as time goes on, I will be interested to see how she does. Thank you, thank you for this wonderful food!
For every cup of freeze-dried cat food, add half a cup of warm water
While this may have been true a few decades ago, in recent years the list of options has grown exponentially. One of the most popular options in healthy cat food today is freeze-dried cat food. Before you turn up your nose, take a moment to learn what freeze-dried cat food is and how it could potentially benefit your cat.Now that you have a better idea of what freeze-dried cat food is, you can probably already guess at some of the nutritional benefits this type of cat food has to offer. In order to understand the nutritional benefits of freeze-dried cat foods over traditional dry kibble, take a moment to learn about the process through which regular kibble is cooked. The cooking process used by pet food manufacturers is called extrusion and it has been used for more than five decades. Before being cooked, the individual ingredients that go into commercial pet foods are weighed and then blended in accordance with the specific recipe. Once mixed, the ingredients are heated under high pressure and then force through a spiral-shaped screw as part of the extruder machine. The product is then forced through a die and the result is a ribbon-like product that is cut into kibbles and dried.
