Yak Chews find their origin in the hills of the Himalayas. Originally made for human consumption, they are still widely eaten by the Himalayan people and their dogs. YAKERS are made from a mix of skimmed Yak and Cow milk. A very small amount of lime juice and salt is added to coagulate (harden) the milk, which is then compressed into blocks and smoke dried for 28 days to give the chews their unique flavour.

Why are some Yak Chews different in colour and why do they smell smoky?
YAK Chews are smoked in the Himalayas using traditional methods. Each chew is laid on drying racks and they dry through the use of traditional smokers. The chews are moved up in height weekly over a 4 week period as they dry so that they are further away from the smoker, so the difference in colour shouldn’t be too great, however a darker colour just means that they have had more smoke than others. This colour may vary slightly from batch to batch too.

Why do YAK Chews have the dimples on the sides?
This happens when the cheese is being compressed into blocks as it is wrapped in muslin cloth. What is the best way to store YAK Chews? Keep your YAK Chews in a cool and dry place. These products get better with age and last longer the older they are which is why there is a 5 year shelf life on them.

How old does my dog have to be for YAK Chews? YAK Chews are suitable for all dogs over 4 months old.

YAK Chews are low in fat at only 5.2%, the cheese used is made from skimmed milk as all of the cream is removed as part of the process.

Isn’t salt bad for dogs?
Salt in large amounts is harmful for dogs as it is for humans. However in YAK Chews we only use a tiny amount of salt along with lime juice to get the cheese to coagulate (harden) at the very start of the manufacturing process. The salt content in YAK Chews is less than 0.1%.
