A "gently cooked" diet is made up of minimally processed whole foods and prepared using a low-heat cook process to maximize digestibility, nutrient availability, and taste. It looks like something you might make in your own kitchen, minus the work. You may notice other offerings on the market that seem comparable, but we go above and beyond the competition. At Evermore, we commit to higher quality standards and happily share each piece of the puzzle with you.
Low Heat Cooking
up to 165°F
We have perfected our time-tested recipe. Its unique properties of being gently cooked and comprised of clean ingredients make it a great preventative diet for active, healthy pups as well as a nourishing and detoxifying diet for older dogs, as well as those with GI issues, food sensitivities, dental problems, arthritis, or illnesses like cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Many vets recommend it for this reason.
We cook our recipes in a USDA/FDA-inspected "people food" kitchen that is in strict compliance with HACCP food safety protocols. They love making our food, and like us, they taste every batch (see below pic for proof).
Using a popular low-heat culinary method (sous-vide), we mix our raw ingredients—including meat ground in-house—and then vacuum-seal them in certified BPA-free, food-safe pouches (absent of phthalates and other plasticizers known to increase estrogenic activity). They are cooked at low temperatures (up to 165°F) for long enough to eliminate dangerous microoganisms, then cooled and frozen. Compared to high-heat canning or even kettle cooking, the advantages of sous-vide include better nutrient retention, increased food safety assurance, and improved flavor.
As genuine animal lovers, we believe strongly in supporting humane farming practices.
A truly healthy diet should be made from immune-supportive ingredients that are free from environmental toxins.
We take great pride in supporting American ranchers and growers, as well as local small businesses. In fact, more than 90% of our ingredients come from CA and the Pacific Northwest alone!
We lab test every batch of food to ensure that the food is delicious, nutritionally complete, and free of pathogens (e.g, salmonella, E. coli, listeria, Staph, mold, yeast, etc.)
