Something NEW! A Pup Above Gently Cooked Foods

Posted on 06.22.2022

You may have noticed these bright new bags in the freezers of your neighborhood Treats Unleashed shop. A Pup Above is a new food that is gently cooked, not raw. While some pet parents have special ordered gently cooked foods in the past or Treats Unleashed has tried a few options before, A Pup Above is a whole new line of gently cooked foods! What makes A Pup Above different than other gently cooked foods?

Slow and low Sous-Vide - Sous-Vide is a French term meaning "under vacuum", which refers to the cooking process sealing food in an air-tight container, typically a vacuum sealed bag, and cooking in temperature controlled water. A Pup Above cooks their food this way in non-boiling water for 2 hours. They are then cooled and frozen to preserve freshness.

Why Sous-Vide? - Cooking this way packs the food with more flavor, and being vacuum sealed helps retain all the moisture in the food, creating a natural tasty gravy. The lower temperature also helps preserve all of the nutrients typically lost in higher temperature environments. It also means fewer carbs, more protein and more moisture!

Quality Ingredients - All of the ingredients in A Pup Above's food are 100% human grade including USDA inspected meats fit for human consumption and non-GMO fruits and veggies. Sourcing and transparency are also important to A Pup Above, which is why you can enter the lot number found on the back of your bag on their website and see the source of each ingredient in your batch. You won't find any preservatives, gums, or additives in any of their foods. Just fresh, wholesome, real ingredients.

See the difference A Pup Above can make in your dog's life with fresh, real ingredients! A Pup Above foods also make a fantastic topper to your dog's dry food dinner - which is a great way to introduce something new.
