RAWZ uses only dehydrated chicken as the natural concentrated protein source. RAWS dehydrated chicken has a higher P.E.R. Value (Protein Efficiency Ratio) than rendered meals. It is gently cooked at much lower temperatures, which helps retain protein and amino acids, keeping the protein in a more natural state. Fat is naturally occurring in RAWZ recipes, eliminating the need to add any rendered chicken fat at all. RAWZ is gently cooked in smaller batches I natural juices with no water added or needed. No micro-ingredients are added just so they can be put on the label. RAWZ recipes are 100% nutritionally complete for all life stages and all breeds as required by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).
