We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our dry food Adult Lamb + Rice. 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 Lamb + Rice 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:
- particularly nutritious
- a treat for your dog
- soft but chewy because of the meat juices
- highly digestible
- 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).

Our experience reports
Luke has had stomach problems since he was a puppy. Even changing over to well-known food types has not helped. I heard about PLATINUM from a friend, but I was very sceptical initially. As with all recommendations, I did some thorough research first, but I was quickly convinced by the many positive customer reviews and the excellent composition of the food. Ordering and delivery were both very quick. I immediately switched Luke to PLATINUM and after 4 days he was feeling better than ever.
No more stomach problems
and he was much better in general. I definitely won’t change again, and my next dog will also get PLATINUM.

We tried a few kinds of food for Shadow, but they all gave him diarrhoea - until we tried yours. Since then, he hasn’t had any more digestion problems. He gets dry dog food in the morning and wet food in the evening. In addition, the body metabolises most of the food so only a little is excreted. It is also very digestible as it does not swell like other foods. It also smells very pleasant, so much so that my three-year-old nephew wanted to try it. We are very satisfied with it and highly recommend it, so we are very happy that we can order it again and again without any problems.

Wally came to us when he was nine weeks old. For the first four weeks, he was fed the food he received from the breeder. However, we were not satisfied, and our little darling didn't like it at all and in the end, he did not want to touch it. We spent several days researching high-quality dry food brands, and finally we settled on Puppy Chicken from PLATINUM. As soon as we opened the bag, we were impressed by the consistency and smell of the food. Wally felt the same way, because he was bouncing up and down and could hardly wait to try it. He absolutely loves it. He almost inhaled the food, which was very unlike him. After just a week, we began to notice changes. Before, he would have very soft faeces 8-10 times a day. Since eating PLATINUM, this has gone down to 2-3 times and they’re solid. He is also much more agile, and his coat has become incredibly soft and shiny. We are often asked about his food. Since he still likes it at nearly six months, we use it as a treat in training. He is still crazy about it. So, we are 100% PLATINUM converts. Thank you for making such a great dry food. There’s nothing better than seeing our dog so happy.

After we bought Kira from her previous owners at the age of about 7 months, we switched to PLATINUM wet and dry dog food, as we had already fed our previous dog with it. The dry dog food Kira was fed by her previous owner made her thirsty, and she also smelled. We have been very satisfied customers for many years, because your food is of very high quality, is enjoyed and well tolerated. Kira loves having the dry dog food as a reward. At lunchtime she gets a portion of wet food, which is always eagerly awaited. We can recommend PLATINUM with a clear conscience, as we consider it to be the best food brand. Our previous dog reached the age of 16 and we are convinced that PLATINUM contributed to this great age. A big THANK YOU - keep up the good work!

I have had only positive experiences with your food with my Labrador. He has a sensitive stomach but so far, he has tolerated your food well.
You have helped him to become symptom-free.
So, thank you.

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.
