Beef contains the powerful antioxidant glutathione and several important minerals and vitamins including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12. Cobalamin (vitamin B12 is only provided by meat).

Beef is also a source of L-carnitine which transports fats to the mitochondria for burning. L-carnitine isn’t considered one of the essential amino acids because your cat’s liver can synthesize it but research suggests that consuming it may have added benefits including a reduction in heart disease.

Lastly, beef gives your cat access to the amino acid carnosine which reduces inflammation in the body and boosts immune function.

SAFETY & HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS

Keep product frozen until ready to use. Defrost package in a leak-proof container (reduces the risk of cross contamination!) and leave in the refrigerator for 24 hours, or until soft through. We recommend serving in a stainless steel bowl as it is easier to clean, and does not have surface pores that may collect bacteria. Partially eaten food should be put back into the refrigerator after 20 minutes. Wash hands, utensils and all contact surfaces with soap and hot water.

*Poultry should not be kept longer than 2 days.
*Red meats & fish should not be kept longer than 3 days.
