From the manufacturer:
At ANSWERS™ Pet Food, our goal is to provide your pet with the healthiest diet possible.
ANSWERS™ Pet Food does not over process the meat. Therefore, our nibbles and patties tend to be softer and moister than other, over-processed, raw diets. ANSWERS™ Pet Food patties and nibbles will never have a “skin” on the outside. This “skin” results from over processing and pasteurization (with either heat or pressure).
ANSWERS™ Pet Food never pasteurizes its products. Our products are always raw.
