Benefits of mb eats and the freeze-dried diet
For so many of us, dogs are considered rightful members of the family, not unlike children. So when it comes to the quality of their food, it only makes sense to take their nutritional needs and safety as seriously as we would for any other member of the pack. The problem is, with current day regulations, the dry kibble that you’re likely feeding your pets contains more ingredients that actively harm their health than have nutritional value.
This is why our new line of mb eats is so committed to bringing the freshest, most high-quality, and delicious freeze-dried foods on the market right to your dog’s food bowl. You may have already heard about the many health benefits of feeding your dog a raw diet, but nothing makes for an easier switch than our line of freeze-dried, raw products, guaranteed to preserve the most nutritional value without the need for refrigeration. Here’s everything you should know about the advantages of a freeze-dried dog food over traditional kibble.
Why choose freeze-dried dog food?
You may naturally be wondering what it is about freeze drying that makes for such a superior product? Freeze-dried foods are more nutritionally dense because they retain their peak nutritional value, and delicious because they retain the essence of the food’s flavor at the optimal moment.
Not only that, but freeze dried food can last for years without spoiling and without the need for refrigeration. The benefits are all centered around the freeze-drying process and machinery, which uses a combination of flash freezing and a unique vacuum environment to draw out 99% of the moisture found in the ingredients.
Unlike dehydration, which leaves a trace amount of moisture and makes the food susceptible to rot and fungus, freeze drying captures each ingredient in mb eats at the peak of its freshness. This means that the food retains the entirety of its proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids essential for your pet’s health and wellbeing.
How is mb eats is made?
We use a modern freeze-drying technique that locks in vital nutrients without cooking the raw food. This keeps all of those life-changing nutrients intact for better nutrition and absorption. Because our method leaves the food with more nutrients and better flavor, the end product is sure to energize your dog in both mind and spirit. All of our formulas are guaranteed to be:
Made in the USA
Made with only fresh, whole ingredients
Made with single-sourced USDA animal protein
Loaded with multi-tasking superfoods
High in protein concentration

What’s Wrong With Feeding Your Dog Kibble?
To understand why kibble isn’t a good choice for feeding your dog, you simply need to look at the production process. From the highly questionable ingredients which it contains, to the methods by which they’re processed, standard dry dog foods lack the basic nutritional building blocks necessary for your dog’s health. In fact, many ingredients contained in kibble are linked to various health problems. Here’s a look at the reasons you should think twice before purchasing another bag of kibble.
“Feed Grade” Protein:
Did you know that it’s perfectly legal and normal for dog kibble to contain materials from diseased, non-slaughtered animals? This practice is rationalized by the fact that these materials are processed at an extremely high heat to kill off any bacteria. However, this process also kills any existing nutritional value that the meat may have contained.
Processed Ingredients: As mentioned, all of the ingredients that enter into dog kibble have to undergo some intense processing. This removes all nutritional value from the ingredients, so that synthetic minerals and vitamins must be added in at the end of the procedure. Processing foods in this way creates carcinogens and other pathogens that can be harmful to your dog’s health.
Carbohydrates: Dog’s aren’t meant to consume high starch foods and grains, which make up the majority of dry kibble. Even kibble that claims to be “grain free” can contain an alarming level of carbs from other sources such as potatoes, peas and lentils. These foods disrupt your dog’s insulin production and cause spikes of cortisol as well as weight gain.
Risk Of Bacteria & Spoiling: Unlike freeze-dried foods, kibble goes rancid quite easily, not to mention the fact that it can contain harmful bacteria and mites. Pets who are exposed to these storage mites can experience infections, inflamed skin, itching, and hair loss. Consuming compromised foods can result in sickness and long-term health problems for your dog.
Synthetic Colors and Additives
Due to the processing during production, kibble must be synthetically colored and flavored to be even slightly appetizing to any animal. All of the vitamins and minerals contained in dog kibble are synthetic and may cause a number of health problems, some of them fatal.
When it comes to food, simple and real are always the better choice. With mb eats, you can be sure your dog is getting human-grade, expertly selected ingredients that are kept at the peak of their freshness and guaranteed to provide all the nutritional value they need to live their best, healthiest lives!
