I am Suresh PM from Chennai, India. I am planning to make a own Dog food fr my Tweety. I have prepared the dog food for my dog but unable to preserve it for long time and so i planned to add preservative. After long search I found that ASCORBIC ACID, a Natural preservative will be suitable. But, I have some doubt in which you can help me I believe,
> How to add the preservative with the food. I brought it in powder form. Should I mix the powder in water and add them with raw materials whole mixing? Or should I spray the preservative after the process?
> How much of preservative should I use? Can I use 3 gm/Kg of Vegan food and 5 gm/Kg of non-vegan food?
> What will be the approximate shelf life of the product?
> Is there any other better preservative I can use to increase shelf-life without causing any problem to my Tweety?
Please help me with full details.
Eagerly waiting for your kind help.

Are you preparing home cooked or raw food? If so I’d suggest freezing.
