We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our wet food Menu Adult Fish. 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 wet food Menu Adult Fish is created using the short cooking technique. This cooking technique only works in the Tetra Recart® carton because this enables the core temperature of the fresh meat to be reached more quickly via the narrow sides than in a can.
Due to Fleischsaftgarung, Menu is:
- particularly nutritious
- a real treat for your dog
- highly digestible
- very yielding
- 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).

The changeover from conventional wet food to Menu can be made immediately without any transitional phase. If your dog has a very sensitive stomach, you can give it the Menu over a period of 1-2 days, introducing it slowly until the animal has fully changed over to it.

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.

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.

We have been using PLATINUM wet and dry dog food since we got our dog in 2015. No matter what flavour, she enjoys eating it and tolerates it very well.
Many people notice that Sally has a beautiful shiny coat
and I think this is mainly due to her diet.
We usually add a little “sauce” from the wet food to the dry food, which she really loves :)

We would also like to share our experience with PLATINUM food. After a long search for an easily digestible food for our very sensitive male Labrador, we came across PLATINUM after recommendations from friends and acquaintances, and as recommended, we made the change immediately without mixing PLATINUM with the old food. Against all expectations our little fur-nose tolerated the change really well. No more vomiting after eating and no more diarrhoea. And that’s on top of how well he accepted it. We mainly feed him PLATINUM dry dog food (Iberico+Greens), but in the evening, he also gets the wet food in the practical TetraPak. He particularly enjoys the PLATINUM Snacks, which we use for training. They work for walking at heel almost by themselves. All-round high praise for the good quality and your great service! We will stay with you!

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.
The choice between all of our varieties is entirely dependent on your dog's taste. You can switch between the adult flavors at any time as you wish, as long as there are no known intolerances. Each of our varieties is a complete feed to meet all of your dogs needs.
The switch from conventional wet food to PLATINUM Menu should be done immediately without a transition phase. If your dog has a very sensitive stomach, you can slowly add PLATINUM Menu over a period of 1-2 days until the changeover is completed.
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.
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.
