Would you please assist me in calculating calories for a quarter cup of the freeze dried Pet Tao Beed Spleen?
Thank you for your question! The calories are measured by weight, and there are 92 kcal/oz. There are 3 oz in a bag of Spleen treats. There are roughly 2 cups in a bag of Spleen trreats (this is a volume measurement, so it can vary depending on the size of the pieces). So, 1/4 cup is roughly 34.5 kcal. Thank you for supporting Chinese Medicine and Food Therapy!
What is your method of killing pathogens and bacteria prior to freeze drying?
Thank you for your question! Before freeze drying, PET | TAO doesn't do anything to kill backteria. After freeze drying, the result is a product that has so little moisture that bacteria and pathogens cannot proliferate. The products are tested after each batch for certain bacteria and counts. Here's a blog post PET | TAO wrote about their process:https://pettao.com/freeze-dried-pet-treats/
