What Are Freeze-dried Raw Dog Food Toppers?

A freeze-dried raw topper is a finely ground dust or crumb mixture which is made from high-quality, raw ingredients. 

These toppers are designed to be sprinkled over your dog’s regular food to enhance its flavour and aroma. The freeze-drying process preserves the natural nutrients and flavours of the raw ingredients, resulting in a healthy and appetising addition to your dog’s meals.

The Freeze-drying Process

Freeze-drying is an innovative method used to preserve food by removing its moisture content. The process involves freezing the raw ingredients and then placing them in a vacuum chamber. 

The frozen water in the ingredients sublimates directly from solid ice to vapour, leaving behind the raw food in a dry and stable form. This method retains the nutritional integrity and flavour of the ingredients far better than traditional drying methods.
