Cultured meat is made when we gather a few animal cells from a live animal, and then culture them – like yogurt or beer – until we have enough cells to create animal tissue, or meat. Read all about it here.
Yes! 100% real meat.
No, it is made from animal cells, not plants, just like farmed meat. We get this question a lot! Read our full answer here.
Yes! Our cultured meat is healthier for pets as it will include nutrients commonly missing from most commercial foods, and will be made from the protein sources your pet evolved eating — such as mouse for cats, and rabbit for dogs. Read more here.
Yes. Our products will be safer than animal meat, which can cause significant pet allergies, and can be dangerously contaminated. This is because we grow it in a sterile environment. It will be safer, cleaner, healthier and better for the planet! Read all about it here.
Yes. The devastating effects of factory farming – rainforest destruction, dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, the release of climate-harming methane in the air, to name a few problems for animal agriculture – are some of the primary reasons we need cultured meat. You can read more here.
No, we don’t.
- We don’t slaughter or otherwise cause harm to any animals. If we are collecting cells from a live animal, we use non-invasive methods, similar to an ear piercing, to get a small amount of cells. We also use anesthetic. This procedure is done by a veterinarian.
- We don’t use fetal bovine serum, known as FBS, to culture our meats. We’ve created our own solution that doesn’t include any animal serums.
- We don’t discard or destroy any animal that we’ve collected cells from. We make sure these animals live the rest of their natural lives in the safest, most comfortable habitat available to them.
We called our company Because, Animals specifically because we care about all animals.
Our supplements are made in Des Moines, Iowa.
We have nothing against China in general, but we do see persistent issues with the supply chain there and have a difficult time auditing the quality of ingredients coming from China. Thus we don’t use any ingredients or other materials from China.
We use all-organic ingredients, save for our seaweed. It is the only ingredient in the supplement that is not certified organic. Our seaweed – we use seven different varieties! – comes from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and thus are not certified organic.
Yes! No synthetics, pharmaceuticals or any additives are used.

It is a very sturdy, shelf-stable, human grade probiotic. It actually diminishes the durability of the probiotic by putting it in the fridge!
Yes. We use whole foods that are naturally dried and ground into powder. That’s why we call them Sprinkles!
Our cookies are made in the USA, from ingredients from the USA. We bake the cookies in the Green Mountain State, Vermont.

Noochies are our name for our cookies because our hero ingredient is Nooch. Nooch is a “pet name” for Nutritional Yeast, an ancient form of inactive yeast that is both tasty and packed with vitamins. It is a complete protein for dogs, containing all the essential amino acids a dog needs.
Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast used to season foods or increase palatability. It’s been included in pet foods for decades.
