Have you ever thought about how nice it would be to know your dogs are getting the healthiest treats possible without worrying about the fillers, overly processed ingredients, or possible allergens? Freeze drying is not a new concept, as it has been used for decades in human food, however, in the pet industry its popularity has only recently gained the attention it deserves.

The Benefits of Freeze Drying

There are many benefits to freeze dried pet treats including having an extremely long shelf life and being an ideal treat for those pets following a raw diet. The quality of the ingredients and its nutrients are second-to-none, it’s convenient to take while travelling, and most important for our furry friendsit tastes great too!

This all sounds pretty great, right? But the question remains, how does the freeze drying process work? 

How Freeze Drying Works

The following steps are the process PureBites follows to ensure your pet receives the best quality treats and toppers possible.



PureBites only uses raw, frozen, human-grade proteins in their refrigerated kitchen, which are then cut into their treats and toppers. Once this is completed, the still-frozen treats are placed into the freeze drying chamber.


Once in the freeze drying chamber, the temperature is brought down even further, and the atmospheric pressure is lowered around the raw proteins. Through a process called sublimation, the ice within the currently frozen protein is gently drawn out of the treats and turned into a vapor. This leaves the protein in the same physical state it was in when frozen but much lighter and completely dry as the moisture was gently removed.


Once the freeze drying is completed, which can take up to 24 hours, delicious morsels of pure RAW freeze dried goodness are removed from the chamber and packaged for your pets to enjoy. PureBites freeze dried treats and toppers have all of the aroma, texture, and locked-in freshness that dogs crave. Pet parents can rest comfortably knowing the treats are still packed with nutrients, as this process preserves the nutritional value of the protein from its original state. Now that is something to really love!

Are freeze-drying and dehydrating the same?

No. Though both processes result in removing water from the product, the process and quality of the ingredients in the final state are different. Dehydration, unlike the freeze drying process discussed above, utilizes low heat for a long period of time to remove the water content in the treat. The two techniques are different, but both result in yummy treats your pets are sure to love.

There are so many benefits to feeding your dog PureBites simple, high-quality freeze dried treats and toppers. A major advantage is that they are made with only 1 to 3 ingredients, making them ideal for dogs with health issues, allergies, or a restricted diet.
