Menu Duck + Turkey

Complete Food - Duck + Turkey

Overview

We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our wet food Menu Adult Duck + Turkey. 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 Duck + Turkey 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 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).

FAQ

Can I give my dog wet food and dry food on the same day?

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.

Why is the food the same, no matter what the breed of dog?

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.

Why does PLATINUM process fresh meat?

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.

How do I switch from conventional wet food to PLATINUM?

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.

Does PLATINUM perform animal experiments?

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.

Which variety of wet food is suitable for my dog?

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.

Can I change easily between the different Adult varieties?

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.

Why does PLATINUM not have a variety for older dogs?

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.

How long is the shelf live of PLATINUM?

The dry dog food is durable for 18 month after production, the wet dog food MENU is durable for 36 months after production.
