Our dry kibble is cooked to above 90c using steam and mechanical pressure between the twin barrel extruder, this is the lowest temperature to guarantee that any possible bacterial contamination (not that we should have any) is killed off - the temperature will vary slightly with each recipe though. It then goes through a drier which will generally runs at 140c but can vary slightly depending on the recipe and even different batches of the same product. Any lower than this then we cannot get the active moisture content low enough to get a prolonged 12-18 month shelf life.
