HOW ARE OUR NUGGETS MADE?
Most of the available raw products on the market are frozen using a mechanical refrigeration process that uses a cooling agent to slowly lower the temperature to around -18 degrees.
During this slow freezing process large ice crystals being to develop. These have a negative impact on the proteins, vitamins, essential minerals and flavour of the original ingredients.
We at Fresco use a special process called Cryogenic freezing. The fresh ingredients are cooled down and frozen rapidly.
This process allows the water in and around the cells to crystalize evenly so that the cell structure does not suffer any damage. All the essential nutrients and flavour from our market fresh ingredients are optimally preserved.
There are substantial differences in the quality of frozen dog nuggets in favour of cryogenic freezing compared to the conventional slow freezing.
HOW TO TRANSITION TO FRESCO RAW NUGGETS
We recommend changing over the diet immediately.
Skip a meal (preferably in the evening) and start directly with the frozen raw nuggets for the next meal.
Feed a single protein for the first 14 days to allow your dog's tummy to get used to their new food. After two weeks, we recommend alternating between different proteins.
VARIETY IS KEY
Feeding a variety of proteins is key to offering your dog the naturally balanced diet he deserves.
