You Wouldn't Add Animal Digest to Your Food. So why feed it to your pup?Click here to learn about animal digest
Animal digest is a common ingredient used in pet foods. As defined by the Association of American Feed Control Officials, digest is produced by the chemical or enzymatic hydrolysisof clean animal tissue that has not undergone decomposition. These animal tissues may not include hair, horns, teeth, hooves, or feathers, with the exclusion of trace amounts that are unavoidable even after acceptable processing methods.
According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a digest is an additive that has been treated with heat, enzymes, or also acids to produce a concentrated product intended as a natural flavoring. Pet food may legally be labelled as "Chicken Flavored" regardless of the percentage of chicken-derived product it contains, so long as the chicken flavoring is deemed "perceptible."
If a product is labeled as "flavored" by a certain type of meat, the digest it contains must have been produced from tissues pertaining to the listed animal species. Chicken flavored food must be flavored with chicken digest
Other premium brands cook their food under high heat and pressure. They use animal digest so dogs will eat their food, and it’s why their dog food is so greasy. Truly Fresh is slowly baked to bring out the natural flavors and aromas of our premium ingredients. We bake your food fresh, package it, and deliver it directly to your door promptly to guarantee its freshness. The result is a delicious tasting food for your dog without sprayed on animal digest.
