We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our dry food Adult Iberico + Greens. Fleischsaftgarung is a method of preparing fresh meat. 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 is a carefully selected combination of these cooking techniques, adapted to the physical needs and interests of dogs. Fleischsaftgarung is a process in which fresh meat is cooked in its own nutrient-rich meat juice, just like in the kitchen. Our dry food Adult Iberico + Greens 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.
Due to Fleischsaftgarung, our dry food is:
a treat for your dog
soft but chewy because of the meat juices
does not swell in dog's stomach (no bloating)
contain less carbohydrates
Fleischsaftgarung makes dog food equivalent to high-quality human food. We therefore do not call food cooked with Fleischsaftgarung ‘dog food’. After all, a best friend does not receive feed. We have our dog food tested regularly and independently by one of the most renowned test centres in Germany, the ELAB Analytik GmbH (formerly TÜV SÜD ELAB).
I’ve been using PLATINUM for over a year. My dog tolerates it well and he seems to enjoy it.
It’s always packed carefully and sometimes there’s even an extra treat :)
We have also made use of the telephone advice service - they take their time and provide personal advice.
We are totally satisfied!

My little Russian Toy Terrier, Lady, loves her PLATINUM food.
She tolerates it also very well
and doesn't have any dandruff, which is unfortunately often the case with other food.
I am very happy and will keep using PLATINUM.

Dear team, we have two Newfoundland who are now five years old. One of them had been getting smaller and smaller open spots under his coat since we bought him, the doctor said it was an allergy to something. We tried the more expensive anti-allergenic food without cereals, gluten etc. However, the ingredients made us suspicious, especially because they didn't stop the allergy. The other dog has had significant problems with his joints from an early age.
After I read an interesting book about the nutrition of wolves, I completely changed my mind. Both now get PLATINUM dry dog food Iberico + Greens in the morning and raw beef, turkey and chicken in the evening.
This combination is excellent! No more allergies for half a year. Joints are no longer an issue either. We also add herbal joint supplements to the food.
And when we travel and can't get hold of fresh meat, we combine the great Iberico + Greens and the practical wet food. Thank you, PLATINUM! We will remain loyal!

We only have positive things to say about this dog food. Jago has a PLATINUM Chicken subscription. He loves to eat the food, which is very good for him.
We’re also really happy with Platinum's excellent service

Unfortunately, Loki is quite picky with food. After weeks of trying everything, we were recommended PLATINUM. We tried the wet food MENU Pure Fish. I have to say that the TetraPaks are a bit strange at first and I had certain reservations about the portion size. However, the food comes out of the pack easily and can then be thrown in the bin to save space. It has a very soft consistency, a bit like a mousse. It is really well digested, and Loki appears to enjoy it :)
No more diarrhoea or flatulence!
We have only been a customer of PLATINUM for a short time and are so far very satisfied.
If you want to offer your dog a little variety, you can easily switch
between all types of PLATINUM food. It does not matter whether you give
wet food in the morning and dry food in the evening or vice versa. A
combination of wet and dry food in one meal is also possible, as both
forms of feeding have the same digestibility with PLATINUM.
Every dog is originally descended from wolves, the digestive tract is designed for meat. Our kibbles are designed in such a way that they can be absorbed easily by any breed from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane and they satisfy the needs of all breeds equally.
Compared to conventional dry food, which is mainly made from meat meal, the slow-cook meat juice method requires at least 70% fresh meat in order to prepare PLATINUM dry food. The difference between meat meal and fresh meat is very huge. In order to obtain meat meal from fresh meat, the fresh meat has to be heated strongly and exposed to high heat for a long time, often also to high pressure. This removes the nutrient-rich meat juice from the fresh meat in addition to the flavor carrier fat. Meat meal therefore is significantly lower in nutrients than fresh meat. We know from cooking that meat juice and fat make the roast a pleasure in the first place, which is why we do not prepare the Sunday roast with meat meal. Thanks to the slow-cook meat juice method, the PLATINUM dry food does not contain any locks or flavors, no coloring or odorous substances and no flavor enhancers.
A healthy senior dog can still be fed with PLATINUM as our food is very easy to digest and the ingredients it contains are of high quality. Please note, however, that the energy expenditure decreases with the age and the amount of food should be reduced if necessary. If an illness is discovered in your older dog, we recommend individual advice from our veterinary department.
We recommend an immediate change in dog food without a transition phase. Due to the different digestibility, it is not recomendable to mix PLATINUM dry food with any other dry food.
No, you can rely on the fact that no animal experiments are done for the product development and production of our food and care products - neither by us, nor by any other third party.
Whether you give your dog Adult Chicken, Adult Beef + Potato, Adult Lamb
+ Rice or rather Adult Iberico + Greens, you can - as long as your
four-legged friend is not aware of any intolerances - chose after your
dog's preferences. Of course, you can also switch between the four
varieties as you wish. Each of our dry foods varaities suppy a healthy
dog with a it needs.
In principle, a change is possible at any time. Different varieties can also be fed on the same day. However, we recommend feeding the opened bag first. In addition a selection in the bowl should be avoided, especially during the change phase to Platinum or if there are known intolerances.
The dry dog food is durable for 18 month after production, the wet dog food MENU is durable for 36 month and MENU Mini for 24 months after production.
