Answers Pet Food™ enhances the nutritional value of raw food through the process of fermentation. We use a special process of fermentation to safely enhance organic raw whole foods.
Fermentation makes our raw pet foods safe, and nutritionally dense.
Here’s how. Fermentation produces a natural medicine known as bacteriocins, which destroy unwanted bacteria. By utilizing raw cultured whey, cultured raw goat milk, and kefir, we created our own category in the world of pet food.
We’ve become the first and only fermented raw pet food diet in the industry.
Fermentation is a safe, healthier option to standardized High Pressure Processing (HPP) or the use of bacteriophage. Fermentation is inoculated with billions of lactic acid bacteria, or good bacteria, that when faced with a compromised environment, is able to prohibit any pathogen from growing and becoming a concern.
Because our nutritional vision is to provide the safest, highest-quality, most nutrient-dense, microbially responsible raw food product on the market, our scientists found that the best way to accomplish this was by using fermented raw foods.
It is a nutritionally rich option for dogs and cats.
Fermentation’s gut health benefits
Good bacteria is needed to create a thriving gut, and yet we believe that bacteria is the number one missing ingredient in pet food.
We inoculate every one of our foods with this beneficial bacteria and allow the organisms to thrive. These bacteria go to work pre-digesting the food, making it easier for pets to assimilate nutrients.
Helps support immune function
Fermentation increases B-vitamins, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and lactic acid that fight off harmful bacteria. Good bacteria fill up the food and also inhibit the growth of bad bacteria.
We call it “safety through inhibition” and it is the most natural and effective way for us to make our products as safe and as healthy as possible.
Just as nature has done it from the very beginning.
