Lizzys Lunchbox: Frequently Asked Questions
1: What Kind of Beef is Used in Your Beef Snaps?
We use the same 100% Grass-fed and Grass-finished beef that the rest of our family eats. Our beef is regeneratively-raised on no-spray farms.
2: Are Beef Snaps FREE from Antibiotics, Hormones & mRNA Vaccines?
Yes. We don't use any of those things with our herds.
3: What are the Ingredients in Beef Snaps?
We wanted to keep it as clean and healthy as our human sticks. Grass-fed & Finished Beef, Beef Fat, Beef Organs, Beef Bones, Potato Starch (binder to hold it all together), Salt, Pepper, Collagen Casing. That's it.
4: Are There Any Preservatives?
Our Beef Snaps have NO preservatives or artificial flavors. They also contain NO Gluten, Soy, Corn or Seed Oils.
5: Are Beef Snaps Made in the USA?
100%. In fact, they are made about 30 minutes away from our ranch at a local small batch facility.
6: Is it bad if I let the sticks dry out?
Nope. They are designed to be dry and chewy with a satisfying "snap".
7: Where Does Your Beef Come From?
Our beef comes from our own ranch plus a couple other small family owned ranches near ours! The sticks are made by a small family owned processor about 45 minutes from our ranch.
8: How big are your smoked marrow bones?
Our smoked marrow bones come from the beef femur (leg). They are cut to a length of approximately 8". They are about 2.5-3.5" thick. They are best suited for medium and large dogs although small dogs will clean them up good, chew on them and get a lot of enjoyment.
9: Will your smoked marrow bones for dogs splinter?
The bones are prepared using a slow smoking technique which naturally preserves the marrow, meat, and bone. This method, combined with the fact that they’re smoked over a long period of time on low temperature, strengthens the bone and prevents it from splintering.
10: How do I store the dog bones?
These bones have a minimum shelf life of 1 year. To store the marrow bones, avoid using airtight containers like ziplock bags or Tupperware unless you’re freezing them. The bones need air to maintain freshness due to their preservative-free nature. You can keep them in their original box or wrap them in paper. Refrigeration is also an option.
11: Why aren't your bones sealed in plastic when they arrive?
Our marrow bones need air to stay fresh for a long shelf-life. Storing them in airtight containers like ziplock bags or Tupperware can impact their shelf life and freshness, unless they are stored in the freezer. Therefore, it’s best to avoid shipping or storing them in airtight containers.
