What is air drying?
Inspired by raw diet, air drying is a preservation method that eliminates the moisture for microbial growth without the use of high temperatures. This method results in shelf-stable, highly palatable food, and preserves vital nutrients, offering nutrition similar to a raw diet.
Air drying: Moisture is removed via the process of evaporation. Ingredients are placed into drying chambers, where air is continually circulated, slowly and gently evaporating moisture until a maximum level of 14% is reached. With higher moisture than freeze-dried, air-dried diets offer scoop & feed convenience.

TRANSITIONING TO NUTRIENCE
It is important to gradually transition your dog from one food to another. Start with a proportion of 25% Nutrience to 75% old food. Slowly change the proportions over the next 5 to 7 days by gradually increasing the amount of
Nutrience and decreasing the amount of the old food.
