What is Cold Pressed?

-   ABOUT US  -

Markus Muhle is a family owned, family run, pet food manufacturer located in Germany. We champion a natural ethos in everything we do, from our Eco friendly manufacturing process to the ingredients and cold pressing process, Markus Muhle has always championed a natural way of life. 

This ethos is exhibited clearly in our new CAT FOOD. We have developed a recipe that harnesses the natural diet of a cat, using appropriate ingredients which are high in meat protein and low in carbohydrates, to allow your feline friend to obtain all ingredients necessary to live a healthy life.

We have been involved in cold pressed pet foods for over 50 years and it is from this 50 years of fine tuning and experience that we have developed this new food. But what is the Cold Pressed Process? 

OUR CATS WANT TO LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE TOO and therefore our premium quality ingredients contain all the necessary nutrients for a healthy, appropriate diet. In order to retain these nutrients in the best possible way, we had already decided 50 years ago to make use of a cold-press procedure to manufacture our unrivalled pet food.

The process of cold-pressing is the method of preserving the basic nutrients whilst making the pellets in such a manner that the ingredients do not gelatinise. In our opinion this means optimal digestion by the cat.

What is Cold Pressed?

All ingredients have to undergo strict incoming quality control.

The various original components are then mixed carefully and put in the press in order to form pellets, which are ideal for the cats manner of chewing.

The mixture is funnelled into a mould, which then forms the pellet in a procedure we have developed without using steam or high temperatures. This is accomplished via means of a specially designed cooling process.

We strive continuously to optimise and improve this method of production, to lower the temperatures even further to enable the retention of the secondary plant and nutritional ingredients, e.g. herbs, as far as is possible.

Cold-pressing means that we are able to avoid high temperatures and the use of steam during the manufacture of dry cat food. This ensures that the nutrients contained within the pellet are conserved to the greatest possible extent, therefore providing the closest species-appropriate diet for your cat.
