Honest Kitchen uses eco-friendly packaging! A fine, recyclable 'minimalist' and unprinted barrier bag that efficiently protects the food inside helps reduce materials usage and waste. The bag is enclosed in a 100% recycled box made from unbleached kraft paperboard. The box is printed with soy-based inks and the finished product is 100% biodegradable or recyclable again after use, too.

The Honest Kitchen makes wholesome, natural food for dogs using gentle dehydration, a unique new approach to canine nutrition. These foods help you create delicious and nutritious meals made with real, recognizable, and human-grade ingredients that are ready to prepare and serve at home. Simply add warm water to rehydrate, and you have a complete meal with USDA meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, organic flaxseed, herbs, vitamins and minerals.

The Honest Kitchen's dehydrated food offers many of the benefits of a biologically appropriate raw pet food diet, combined with the convenience and peace of mind of a nutritionally balanced, ready-blended product. Dehydration simply removes the moisture, which prevents decomposition. As an ancient form of preserving food, virtually all of the nutrients are left intact. This is a much "fresher", and therefore healthier, approach than the extrusion process that dry kibble undergoes. See below for a description of each formula.

All of Honest Kitchen's dog food and dehydrated raw dog food products are formulated to meet the AAFCO nutrient profiles for dogs and you don't have to add anything to make them 'complete'. However, the original idea behind these diets was as a base for a raw or other fresh homemade diet and to facilitate that, they are somewhat 'lite' in terms of fat and protein, so that your own choice of raw, or cooked, meat can be added, if desired.

It is entirely a matter of personal choice (and your dog's taste!) whether you add in extra meat and other ingredients, or not. Most people with younger and more active dogs like to mix in the additional meat, and those with senior or overweight animals usually prefer to feed the organic dog food alone. The Honest Kitchen supplies pet owners with the best in fresh dehydrated raw dog food and other organic dog food products.

About Dehydration

Dehydration or drying, is one of the oldest and gentlest methods of food preservation. Food dehydration works by removing only the water content from the ingredients. All other nutrients remain, and become highly concentrated. Dried foods are extremely nutritious, easy to prepare and store, and light weight to ship.

Because dehydration takes place at moderate temperatures, the ingredients are still considered raw. The only exceptions are the meat and egg ingredients, which are dehydrated at high enough temperatures to kill any bacteria present and are therefore essentially considered 'cooked'. This is because they must be human-edible grade, to enter our manufacturing facility.

The removal of moisture prevents enzymatic activity, which can lead to browning and decomposition of foods, and also prevents the growth of bacteria, yeast and molds. Dehydration does not actually destroy or kill the food enzymes, as occurs in baking and freezing or high pressure processing such as extrusion. Enzyme activity in dehydrated foods is simply suspended, until the food is rehydrated.

A remarkable example of the way dehydration preserves without destroying, is in Africa, where scientists have discovered live fish being hatched from fish eggs, that have been dehydrated in the sun, during droughts that sometimes last for years. When the rains fall, the lakes and rivers refill with water to rehydrate the eggs - and live fish emerge. The eggs are actually preserved and remain viable throughout the natural dehydration that takes place.

4 Paws up for The Honest Kitchen

My husband and I switched our black lab and dachshund to The Honest Kitchen in the fall of 2017. Meal times have never been the same since then and their health and energy levels have been fantastic. We could not be happier with The Honest Kitchen and the dogs couldn't be happier with their meals. We switched to grain free because our dachshund began biting at her paws. Once we switched to the grain free formulas, she stopped biting her paws. So far they have liked the grain free duck, turkey, chicken, and beef.

Finally! A food they will eat!

I have 2 pups that are about 8 lbs each. I have never seen such picky eaters! It's maddening! The first time they tried Honest Kitchen, they gobbled it up like I have never seen them do. Every evening they follow me around and whine until I "cook" their food. They absolutely love it and I am so thankful to find something that they love to eat and that I know is very good for them. Thank you, Honest Kitchen!

Relief for Max!

Max has allergies and it was very upsetting to both of us to see him suffer. My vet recommended Honest Kitchen products and Max's immune system has become stronger and his allergies have subsided dramatically. I have used their products for many years and will continue to do so. I have recommended Honest Kitchen to all my friends and to those who want to have a healthy pet.

The dogs loved it and it rehydrated very easily. We did the transistion from there regular food to this for about 3 weeks. After about 3 weeks on this (after the transistion) they started having very runny stools and throwing it up. Decided to go back to what we were giving them before. I would recommend it because my dogs have always had sensitive stomachs, others may not.

Love this dog food and so does my little guy

My Havanese has severe allergies and has been on almost every dog food there is.I feed him raw food for his evening meal, usually turkey and sardine or rabbit. I have been feeding him dehydrated/freeze dried in the morning to accommodate a second protein as too much of one protein tends to set his allergies off. I usually feed the Honest Kitchen Brave of the Grandma Lucy's pork or rabbit. This is the first time I have tried the Honest Kitchen Keen and I wasn't sure how it would go for us as there are oats in it. My dog really likes it and so do I. So far, no residual issues from the oats and I only have to feed him 1/4 cup per meal so the value is so much better. I will buy this again.
