Air-Dried: The Perfect Alternative to Kibble or Raw

Air-Dried: The Perfect Alternative to Kibble or Raw
August 22, 2018 by Modern Pets

Sales of raw and raw alternative pet foods in the United States have more than tripled in the past 6 years.  While consumers love the idea of feeding fresh or frozen diets, many are looking for shelf-stable alternatives that are high in meat content and free from unnecessary fillers.

Air-dried diets offer excellent nutrition with the scoop-and-serve convenience of kibble. Air-drying is a slow and gentle process that naturally preserves nutrients in the raw ingredients, while eliminating harmful pathogens. The result is a shelf-stable, nutrient-dense, highly digestible diet that is free from artificial preservatives.

Ziwi, the innovator of air-dried pet nutrition, produces air-dried dog and cat foods that are based on the whole-prey model. Limited-ingredient Ziwi Peak Air-Dried recipes contain 96% meat, organ, and bone, with 3% New Zealand Green Mussel – a rich natural source of glucosamine, chondroitin, and omega 3 fatty acids. Made with 100% New Zealand-sourced free-range meats and sustainable seafood, Ziwi recipes are complete and balanced for all life stages and breeds, eliminating the need to add expensive supplements.

Ziwi’s Air-Dried recipes are versatile and simple to feed as a complete and balanced daily diet or as a nutritious topper or mix-in to other foods. There’s no wrong way to feed Ziwi! Adding Ziwi to a kibble diet as a topper or alternative meal option is a simple way to increase the meat content, reduce carbohydrate intake, and add valuable nutrients such as taurine, cystine, and methionine. Because it is nutrient-dense, serving sizes are smaller than kibble, while still offering the same scoop and serve convenience. Ziwi Air-Dried is also an excellent alternative to freeze dried, as it costs approximately 40% less per serving, and is fed as is, without the need to rehydrate.

Ziwi is family-owned and operated, with air-drying kitchens in Mount Maunganui (North Island) and Christchurch (South Island), in New Zealand.
