The moisture or amount of water in Freshpet refrigerated foods seems high, why is this?

Freshpet refrigerated foods are meat-based foods, so you can expect them to have the same moisture content as fresh, human-grade meats. 70-75% moisture is the natural state of fresh meat. Chicken breast meat contains 74.6% moisture, and fresh turkey meat contains 75.8%. (Reference: USDA database)
