Technology Used For Preservation of Natural Nutrition
Right4Paws uses a proprietary process called Multi Factor Controlled Dehydration (MFCD) to gently dehydrate while preserving the natural nutrients of the ingredients. The ingredients are measured, pulverized and blended into a homogeneous mix and then dehydrated to get dry food in the form of composite meat flakes that is shelf stable with a long shelf life. Dehydration using MFCD process ensures that the ingredients are not denatured, and natural nutrition is fully preserved.
We pack the food in vacuum packs, which is the technology used to pack food for astronauts making forays into outer space. The barrier properties of the vacuum packs ensure that there is no contact with the external environment, ensuring no microbial growth, and long shelf life. Vacuum pack technology allows us to deliver food for your loved ones without any chemical preservatives.
So, when you get a Right4Paws pack, remember the convenience of ‘open and feed natural nutrition’ comes from the strength of new age technology that we have used. That’s why we call Right4Paws pet food “The Next Generation Pet Food"
