High pressure processing of pet food

The growing interest for BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) diets, i.e., feeding pets with raw meats and vegetables, opens new opportunities for pet food producers. Many pet owners see health advantages with a BARF diet for their pets but are concerned about food safety.

High pressure processing makes it possible to ensure food safety in fresh and raw pet food without affecting nutritional components and the bioavailability of these nutrients. Pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, and pathogenic E. coli are inactivated.

Pathogens in pet food are regulated by regulatory agencies not only for the health of pets, but also for pet owners, particularly children.  With HPP treated BARF food, pet owners can be assured that their pets are getting all the taste and natural health benefits in their diets.
