All of our Bully Sticks come from food-grade raw material. Food-grade means fit for human consumption. Our Bully Sticks are washed 3 times in warm water to remove excess fluids and hung vertically to cook. The hanging allows any juices to drip off the pizzle instead of basting in them. Our Bully Bites are a mixture of all types of our Bully Sticks. Our 1 lb. bag is equal in weight to over 10 Regular 12” Bully Sticks.
