We use Fleischsaftgarung to prepare our wet food Menu Adult Duck + Turkey. Fleischsaftgarung is a method of preparing fresh meat. It was developed in the kitchen and not in the feed industry. The method is based on techniques often used by culinary chefs to make meat tastier and healthier by using meat juices. Fleischsaftgarung is a carefully selected combination of these cooking techniques, adapted to the physical needs and interests of dogs.
Fleischsaftgarung is a process in which fresh meat is cooked in its own nutrient-rich meat juice, just like in the kitchen. Our wet food Menu Adult Duck + Turkey is created using the short cooking technique. This cooking technique only works in the Tetra Recart® carton because this enables the core temperature of the fresh meat to be reached more quickly via the narrow sides than in a can.
Due to Fleischsaftgarung, Menu is:
- particularly nutritious
- a real treat for your dog
- highly digestible
- very yielding
- contain less carbohydrates
Fleischsaftgarung makes dog food equivalent to high-quality human food. We therefore do not call food cooked with Fleischsaftgarung ‘dog food’. After all, a best friend does not receive feed.
We have our dog food tested regularly and independently by one of the most renowned test centres in Germany, the TÜV SÜD ELAB.

Our experience reports
We have used PLATINUM dry dog food since 2007. All our dogs have enjoyed it without having to add anything. We now have our fourth dog eating this food. He comes from Greece and when we first got him, he had very bad fur and brittle claws. After about four weeks, people were telling us that he had a very beautiful and shiny coat. The dry dog food smells great, and I like its soft consistency compared to other dry foods. In between meals, he gets wet food as a reward when in training. We are very happy with this dog food.

My little Russian Toy Terrier, Lady, loves her PLATINUM food.
She tolerates it also very well
and doesn't have any dandruff, which is unfortunately often the case with other food.
I am very happy and will keep using PLATINUM.

Uno is a playful and lively fox terrier. Food isn’t just about nutrition for him, he loves his treats. We have already used PLATINUM dry dog food in the dog school to reward him for obeying commands or to motivate him for new tricks. He also loves it when we put them into his food ball, and he has to roll it to release little bits.
We add some of the small juicy portion cups to each order. These are served on special days as “feasts”. Yes, Uno is a little spoiled.
PLATINUM helps with that: we regularly receive our parcel delivered automatically to our home. Always first-class service and quality. And if we postpone our subscription for a few days, the service team is always friendly and helpful. Thank you, PLATINUM!

He used to eat different brands and types of food. However, after a while, the foods wouldn’t agree with him, so we would try another, and this went on for some time.
I switched to PLATINUM over 2 years ago and since then he has never had a problem. He tolerates the food really well, both wet and dry. The main reason I chose PLATINUM was its high meat content. Also, the wet food smells really good and the dry food is slightly soft. It is also very wholesome.
We are very happy that we switched to PLATINUM and will remain loyal customers.

Loki is quite picky with food. After weeks of trying everything, we were
We tried the wet food MENU Pure Fish.
I have to say that the TetraPaks are a bit strange at first and I had certain reservations about the portion size. However, the food comes out of the pack easily and can then be thrown in the bin to save space.
It has a very soft consistency, a bit like a mousse.
It is really well digested, and Loki appears to enjoy it :)
No more diarrhoea or flatulence!
We have only been a customer of PLATINUM for a
short time and are so far very satisfied.

Compared to conventional dry food, which is mainly made from meat meal, the slow-cook meat juice method requires at least 70% fresh meat in order to prepare PLATINUM dry food. The difference between meat meal and fresh meat is very huge. In order to obtain meat meal from fresh meat, the fresh meat has to be heated strongly and exposed to high heat for a long time, often also to high pressure. This removes the nutrient-rich meat juice from the fresh meat in addition to the flavor carrier fat. Meat meal therefore is significantly lower in nutrients than fresh meat. We know from cooking that meat juice and fat make the roast a pleasure in the first place, which is why we do not prepare the Sunday roast with meat meal. Thanks to the slow-cook meat juice method, the PLATINUM dry food does not contain any locks or flavors, no coloring or odorous substances and no flavor enhancers.
If you want to offer your dog a little variety, you can easily switch
between all types of PLATINUM food. It does not matter whether you give
wet food in the morning and dry food in the evening or vice versa. A
combination of wet and dry food in one meal is also possible, as both
forms of feeding have the same digestibility with PLATINUM.
No, you can rely on the fact that no animal experiments are done for the product development and production of our food and care products - neither by us, nor by any other third party.
The switch from conventional wet food to PLATINUM Menu should be done immediately without a transition phase. If your dog has a very sensitive stomach, you can slowly add PLATINUM Menu over a period of 1-2 days until the changeover is completed.
The dry dog food is durable for 18 month after production, the wet dog food MENU is durable for 36 month and MENU Mini for 24 months after production.
The choice between all of our varieties is entirely dependent on your dog's taste. You can switch between the adult flavors at any time as you wish, as long as there are no known intolerances. Each of our varieties is a complete feed to meet all of your dogs needs.
A healthy senior dog can still be fed with PLATINUM as our food is very easy to digest and the ingredients it contains are of high quality. Please note, however, that the energy expenditure decreases with the age and the amount of food should be reduced if necessary. If an illness is discovered in your older dog, we recommend individual advice from our veterinary department.
Every dog is originally descended from wolves, the digestive tract is designed for meat. Our kibbles are designed in such a way that they can be absorbed easily by any breed from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane and they satisfy the needs of all breeds equally.
