Kidney In Eastern Medicine
In TCVM, the Five-Element Theory explains the relationship between the five naturally occurring elements in the environment.
For example, according to the Five-Element Theory, the kidney represents water.
In Eastern veterinary medicine, kidney energy governs bone, opens up the ears, and regulates water flow. As pets age, just like humans, kidney energy progressively declines.
The attributes of water are flexibility, softness, and pliancy.
By giving your pets kidney treats, the water attributes are strengthened.
For example, an older spayed dog with urinary incontinence is an ideal candidate for the kidney treat.
Since the kidney controls the contraction of the urethral sphincter, feeding kidney treats helps alleviate the symptoms of incontinence.
About Freeze Dried Beef Kidney
Freeze drying is one of the best ways to process meat for pet treats.
The process allows meat to keep its ideal characteristics, specifically flavor and nutrient content.
How Are Meats Freeze Dried?
Freeze drying starts with flash-freezing meat or fish in a vacuum chamber at -50 to -60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Low-level heat is then applied to evaporate any ice crystals, removing about 98% of moisture.
Why Freeze Dry Meat?
Flash-frozen foods are stable without preservatives, additives or chemicals.
Additionally, freeze dried meat retains its vitamin, mineral and fat content.
The process of freeze drying does less harm to the meat than heat-based preservation methods.
Conventional cooking reduces amino acids, denatures peptides, alters flavors and aromas, and decomposes vitamins and fatty acids.
Furthermore, freeze dried meat retains many of the properties of raw meat.
Certainly, freeze dried meat is shelf-stable for a longer period of time than other preserved products because the process decreases oxidation.
How Long Can You Keep Freeze Dried Foods?
PET | TAO freeze dried beef kidney treats are fresh for 18 months as long as you keep the bag at low humidity.
But, they may last much longer if kept under the right conditions.
Like beef jerky, as long as moisture can’t get to the pieces, they will last a long time (years).
Can You Reconstitute Freeze Dried Beef Kidney Treats?
Freeze drying usually yields 25% of the original wet weight of the meat.
Additionally, if you rehydrate the treats, they should quadruple in weight.
Thus 3 oz. should turn into 12 oz. when rehydrated.
