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:
- particularly nutritious
- a treat for your dog
- soft and chewy because of the meat juices
- highly digestible
- does not swell (no food belly)
- good for the teeth (less carbohydrates reduce tartar formation)
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 like the animals in the stable would.
We have our dog food tested regularly and independently by one of the most renowned test centres in Germany, the TÜV SÜD Elab.

Our experience reports
Before I discovered PLATINUM dog food, I had tried numerous kinds of dog food, but my dog didn’t tolerate any of them. It is only since she started eating PLATINUM dog food that her digestive problems have disappeared. Whether it’s wet or dry, and whatever the flavour,
Nala loves it all,
especially the snacks

Before, Abby would always start refusing dry food after a couple of weeks. Her faeces were always very soft, almost diarrhoea-like. Since she started eating PLATINUM, this has all changed. I was sceptical at first whether such a small portion would fill her up, but it seems to be very filling. The best thing is that she looks forward to her food and always enjoys eating it.
Her coat is shiny.
We are particularly pleased that since she started eating PLATINUM, her flatulence has stopped.

When we got Lexi from the breeder, we used to feed her a different brand. After a while, we noticed that she wasn’t digesting the food well. Our vet recommended PLATINUM and we immediately switched.
You could see the difference after just a couple of weeks: her coat shone (we were often asked about it),
her digestion had improved, and the consistency of the food is really good.
We have been feeding Lexi Iberico+Greens for a couple of years now, because she was found to be intolerant to animal food.

My 1.5-year-old French Bulldog Cuba has been fed PLATINUM Iberico+Greens dry dog food for about four months. We had previously tried dry foods from other manufacturers, but we always had problems with tolerance or taste. Someone recommended PLATINUM to us and now we are loyal customers! The food smells pleasant, doesn’t swell and is easily digestible for Cuba. The fact that he runs like crazy to his food bowl every morning shows how tasty he thinks his food is.
We have also been using PLATINUM's Click-Bits and Fit-Sticks as motivation for dog sports for a while now. We have only had good experiences with these products too!
We highly recommend 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.

- Why is the food the same, no matter what the breed of dog?
- Why does PLATINUM not have a variety for older dogs?
- Can I give my dog wet food and dry food on the same day?
- Which variety of dry food is suitable for my dog?
- How do I switch form conventional dryfood to PLATINUM?
- Why does PLATINUM process fresh meat?
- Does PLATINUM perform animal experiments?
- Can I change easily between the different Adult varieties?

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
