Northwest Naturals: Enjoy the Benefits of Raw Food Without the Hassle

Opened in 2004 by Morasch Meats, an established presence in the meat industry since 1956, Northwest Naturals is your one-stop manufacturer of premium raw meat products for your pets. Today, they’ve come a long way from their humble beginnings as a family-run business in USA, and is now an established international pet food brand. 

 

Why feed my pets raw food?

Northwest Naturals: Enjoy the Benefits of Raw Food Without the Hassle

In recent years, feeding cats and dogs raw meat products have become increasingly popular. This is because raw meat, though pricier, provides numerous nutrients and compounds that can benefit your four-legged friends, such as:

 

Enzymes

Raw meat is packed with enzymes, which are the catalysts for all bodily processes such as cell regeneration and the breaking down of nutrients during digestion. As enzymes are denatured by heat, the level of enzyme activity in cooked and processed foods are significantly impacted as compared to that of raw foods. In other words, this means poorer digestion and absorption of nutrients in your pets!

 

Amino Acids

Raw meat is rich in essential amino acids, which aid muscle tissue growth and increase fat metabolism – both vital for your pet’s health. As animals cannot produce essential amino acids on their own, food is the only way that they can obtain the necessary amino acids, which is why feeding your pet the right foods is important. 

 

Intracellular Moisture

Also called Cytosol, the moisture within the cells of raw food helps your pet to break down and process the food that they consume more efficiently. Cooked and processed foods lose this moisture, which in turn forces your pet’s digestive system to work extra hard! 

 

Why choose Northwest Naturals?

Even as raw food continues to gain traction amongst pet owners, concerns about food hygiene and quality play major roles in influencing a pet owner’s decision when it comes to raw food. 

If you’re still on the fence because of this concern, Northwest Naturals believes in providing quality raw meat products to their customers. By using only premium ingredients, they’ve managed to ensure consistent freshness and quality throughout the years.

In addition to using premium ingredients, Northwest Naturals prevents tummy upsets in your pets by using High-Pressure Processing (HPP) in all of their raw food products. Utilising ultra-high water pressure processing, this method inactivates harmful pathogens in the meat whilst leaving food components untouched, helping the meat retain its full nutritional value!
