Benefits of Air-Dried Cat Food

September 14, 2023

Air-dried cat food is a new and healthier alternative to kibbles and it offers many advantages. Here are just a few of the many benefits of feeding your cat air-dried cat food:

  • Nutritional Value: Air drying is a gentle dehydration process that helps retain the natural flavors and nutritional value of the ingredients. This means that the food often contains more of the original nutrients and flavor compared to some other forms of cat food. Air-dried cat food is made at very low temperatures to preserve the nutritional value of the ingredients without adding any preservatives. The food is placed in a dehydrator that circulates air and evaporates the moisture in the food. This process protects vital nutrients and fresh ingredients and flavors without adding artificial preservatives.
  • High-Quality Ingredients: Air-dried cat foods are made with high-quality ingredients, including meat, vegetables, and fruits. Because it is dehydrated, air-dried cat food is also nutritionally dense, providing essential nutrients for your cat's health. 
  • High in Protein: Air-dried food is high in protein, which makes it highly-digestible and super healthy for cats since cats are obligate carnivores. Because it’s so nutrient dense, cats can eat smaller amounts and feel full longer, keeping them at a healthy weight.   
  • Shelf-Stable Convenience: Air-dried cat food is shelf-stable and can be served right out of the package, just like kibble. However, unlike kibble, it has plenty of the protein that cats’ bodies need and none of the carbohydrates they don’t! If your cat needs added hydration or prefers softer textures, though, add some warm water to the air-dried food. It tastes great either way! 
  • Weight Management: Since it’s high in protein and low in carbohydrates, air-dried cat food can help keep cats at a healthy weight. They’ll be satiated while eating smaller portions, which also helps to curb mindless snacking!
