Mold… not a nice four letter word. You work so hard to bake your treats and they grow mold. You scratch your head, maybe swear a little and wonder how do other bakers do it? You can't believe they all bake the night prior to events because you know how much work goes into baking. Well, here's the secret.... they don't add preservatives and they don't bake the night before!
There are two common ways to dry your treats out so they last for months. Convection Ovens and Dehydrators. You can also shut your regular ovens off after your treats are baked and leave your treats in overnight. Most bakers bake then dehydrate their treats for 8 - 12 hours. That's it... easy peasy... no preservatives or freezers needed!
For best results... send off your dehydrated dog treats to a Feed Lab and get a "shelf life" test done. Then... you can rest easy and say good bye to.... MOLD!!!!!
