What is this ingredient in pet food?

Meat meal is based on one of the oldest ways of preserve meat -drying. This method was commonly used amongst humans before refrigerators and freezers were invented.


What is Meat Meal made from?

All ingredients for Meat Meal are sourced from human food slaughter houses -ill or dead (none slaughtered) animals are not included. A good chicken based meat meal does also not contain beaks, feet and feathers. Some meals do contain a limited amount of bones – in this case they are defined as meat and bone meals rather than meat meal. As calcium, which the bones amongst others provide, is an important component in the pets diet it can be beneficial that this ingredients is included in Pet Food in limited volumes.

How is Meat Meal made?

When the meat scraps are processed into Meat Meal they are purely dehydrated/dried and ground into a fine flour. As this is done shortly after the animal has been slaughter the meat is well preserved and can help ensure a good and healthy Pet Food all the way to the expiry date.

Meat meal vs. meat slurry/fresh meat?

As the meat has been dehydrated it is also significantly more concentrated than meat slurries -a fresh meat 'soup'. So keep this in mind if you attempt to compare a Meat Meal based with a Pet Food based on meat slurry.
