Freeze-Dried vs. Air-Dried - What's the Difference?

Freeze-Dried vs. Air-Dried - What's the Difference? 8/13/2018 - By ZIWI An often-asked question we receive from pet parents who are considering feeding ZIWI Peak Air-Dried food is how our product differs from freeze-dried foods. To understand the difference, it’s helpful to understand what causes foods to spoil in the first place. Unless it is frozen or preserved in some manner, meat “spoils” or “goes off” very quickly, due to the presence of microorganisms, such as mold spores and bacteria. These microorganisms cause proteins and fats to break down, releasing toxins into the meat. They also multiply, eventually...

Benefits of Grass-Fed Meats

2.23.18 - Nutrition: Benefits of Grass-Fed Meats Posted by ZIWI Pets Here’s a brief look at some of the reasons behind ZIWI’s commitment to source grass-fed and finished meats from local New Zealand farms for our recipes: In many parts of the world, animals are raised in crowded feedlots, on grain-based commercial feeds, and are given hormones and low doses of antibiotics to speed weight gain. New Zealand’s temperate climate allows livestock to graze outdoors in grass pastures, all year long. Raising livestock this way is more expensive and takes longer, but the meat produced from grass-fed and...
