All Tucker's Raw Frozen and Freeze-Dried Raw Formulas are emulsified for maximum nutrient absorption. But what does this actually mean and why do we do it?
What is emulsification?
To make it simple, emulsify is essentially just a fancy term for "puree." Tucker's is currently the only raw pet food company that emulsifies the entire product. Most companies grind and then regrind their product to reduce it down to a workable size.
Why emulsify diets for pets?
Cats and dogs have very short digestive tracts. One of the things we've learned is that you cannot control how quickly food moves through an animal's body. However, by changing the size of the particulate, you can change absorption.
By emulsifying our product, it results in a smaller and more digestible product, providing more surface area. The smaller the particulate, the more accumulative surface area is available for dogs and cats to absorb the available nutrients. Providing this added surface area allows cats and dogs to absorb more nutrients from our food in the short period of time it moves through their digestive tracts.
