Dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung

We use Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) to prepare our dry food. It was developed in the kitchen and not in the feed industry. The method is based on techniques often used by culinary chefs to make meat tastier and healthier by using meat juices. Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) is a carefully selected combination of these cooking techniques, adapted to the physical needs and interests of dogs.

Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) is a process in which fresh meat is cooked in its own nutrient-rich meat juice, just like in the kitchen. Our dry food is produced when the fresh meat is cooked at a low temperature over a long period of time and the meat juice is constantly concentrated using a cooking technique known as reduction.

The Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) process produces the important properties of our dry food that are so highly valued by dog lovers:

Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) retains the biologically important nutrients in our dry food. This is because of the
  • nutritious meat juices in fresh meat,
  • the low cooking temperature and
  • the addition of cold-pressed oils after cooling at room temperature.
Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) creates a treat for your dog, completely without additives, flavourings, colourings, odours or flavour enhancers. This is because of:
  • The low cooking temperature: This preserves the flavours in the natural fat content of the fresh meat.
  • The reduction: This is a preparation technique used in Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) that is familiar to many cooks. The gentle cooking (reduction) reduces the moisture content in the meat juices, making the natural meat flavour more intense.

One technique used in Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) is reduction, a method that has been used in cooking for years. Reduction intensifies the natural flavours and is also thickening, which makes our dry food soft and chewy. Dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) become soft and chewy through the meat juice of the fresh meat alone.

Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) makes our dry food highly digestible. This is due to the large amount of fresh meat used, which is what makes meat juice cooking possible in the first place. Dogs' digestive systems are designed for meat. This means that dogs digest meat faster and also utilise it more effectively than humans. This is why dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) is naturally easily digested and effectively utilised. The resulting faeces are consequently small, stable in shape and do not have an offensive odour. The faecal texture makes it easier for your dog to defecate (once or twice a day).

Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) means that our dry food does not swell up in the stomach. This means that there isn’t bloating after meals as there often is with conventional dry food. This has many effects that improve your dog's quality of life:
  • No stomach ache due to swelling
  • Reduced risk of gastric torsion
  • Reduced resting period after eating, because your dog feels less sluggish and tired after eating
  • No soaking of food, which makes for an unappetising mush

Dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) contain only the necessary carbohydrates for your dog’s health and these are gluten-free, wheat-free, soya-free and GMO-free as too many carbohydrates slow down the digestion and are a common cause of tartar. By reducing the amount of carbohydrates to the quantity necessary for health

  • the digestion eases,
  • the tartar formation reduces.

Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) prepares dog food in the same way as high-quality human food is made. It makes dog food equivalent to human food. At first glance, this may sound a bit excessive to some dog owners. But it’s not, since the dog is (wo)man’s best friend. The dog left the forest to spend its life with humans some 15,000 years ago. Today, the dog shares our habitat and feels like a real member of the family. The forest continues to be great fun, but not as an alternative way of life. The family has now replaced the pack. Formerly, its standing in the pack had a strong influence on its well-being. Today, it is its position within the family. Consequently, dogs should not feel worse off in any area of life than the other members of the family.
We therefore do not call food cooked with Fleischsaftgarung ‘dog food’. After all, a real family member or best friend does not receive feed.

In a world full of advertising slogans, it’s pretty hard to tell the good from the bad.
This is also why we have decided to commission TÜV SÜD ELAB (now ELAB Analytik GmbH) to regularly and independently test our dog food made from Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) and to publish all test parameters online for everyone to see.

The test parameters are formulated as questions:

Is the dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) genuinely made with the advertised amount of fresh meat?

  • Yes, this was confirmed by the regular and independent test.

Are the declarations on the packaging correct?

  • Yes, this was confirmed by the regular and independent test.

Is the dry food prepared with Fleischsaftgarung (FSG) safe with regard to harmful substances such as germs, bacteria (Enterobacteriaceae, E. coli, presumptive Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus, Clostridium perfringens, Salmonella and others), yeasts/moulds as well as heavy metals and mycotoxins?

  • Yes, this was confirmed by the regular and independent test.
