Frequently Asked Questions

Where and How are NDT Natural Chews made?


NDT chews are created by farmers in community co-ops located in the Himalayas (Eastern Nepal) where they use traditional, centuries-old techniques to make raw cheese. Pasteurization Yak and cow milk is boiled for hours and then poured into a customary barrel which is cranked by human hand to extract the majority of the fat content. After the fat-free milk has cooled, a dose of lime juice and salt is added - about 10-15 mil per 400 litres of milk. This coagulates the milk and, in time, solids form and are separated using a jute or burlap sack. The sack is washed with warm water multiple times to remove the whey (lactose content), salt, and the lime juice. Smoking & Aging The product of this venerable, bespoke process is hand pressed in wooden vise for 2-3 days forming a soft cheese which is placed over wood fire where it is smoked and fermented. The cheese is then kneaded, partitioned, and molded by hand into appropriate sizes. Finally, the cheese is dried in the sun for 2-3 months to achieve the perfect hardness and texture for your dog's chewing enjoyment. Important: The hue and texture of individual NDT chews will vary due to this traditional and natural process. Cleaning, Cutting, & Finishing
