Freeze-drying works by extracting water from food, rather than using extreme levels of heat to cook it.
This process allows the food to remain microbiologically raw while at the same time, lowering the risk of bacteria or contamination.
Fresh human-grade ingredients are blended and moulded into small tasty bite-sized nuggets
Next, we quick-freeze the nuggets to lock in all the natural goodness.
And finally, dried by removing 98% of the moisture. No special storage – simply store it in your kitchen cabinet.
Cold-pressing is where you cook food at a low temperature to preserve as much nutrients as possible.
Unlike freeze-dried food, cold-pressed food isn’t technically still raw, but it does offer a very similar nutritional profile.
We begin by mixing your dog’s blend of raw meat, vegetables and fruit together with cold water
The ingredients are then gently pressed under a low temperature, sealing in the natural nutrients and flavour
The mixture is finally moulded into tasty pellets, fit for your dog’s consumption
Keep your dog’s tastebuds on their toes with chicken, beef or salmon.
There’s no refrigeration or freezing required – simply store it in your kitchen cabinet!
Simply pour their food into a bowl and add a splash of water to help bring out the natural smells and flavours. Remember: the food your handling is raw. So be sure to wash your hands as well as any serving utensils and surfaces before and after serving.
Ella’’s freeze-dried raw is not recommended for puppies. Once your puppy reaches 10+ months they’ll be ready to subscribe to a freeze-dried food subscription! Why not take a look at our cold-pressed option? Suitable for puppies over 4 weeks.
The great thing about our freeze-dried products is they’re incredibly convenient, being room-temperature stable and don’t require refrigeration! Freeze-dried products have an excellent shelf life and can be stored for years! But once opened, be sure to place the freeze-dried nuggets in the storage bag supplied keeping the bag sealed using the zip closure to lock in freshness.
This depends as your orders are personalised to your dog 🐶 Ella’s freeze-dried raw comes in different sizes (anywhere between 2kg – 10kg). We send you the most appropriate sized bag and calculate how long we think one bag will last you, based on your recommended portion sizes, and we plan to send your next big bag exactly when we think you’ll need it.
