Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Orijen Dry Cat Food Fit & Trim with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken. Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The second ingredient is whole egg. Whole eggs are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.

The third ingredient is whole herring. Although herring is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw herring contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of herring is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The fourth ingredient is turkey. Turkey is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, turkey contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of turkey is dramatically reduced after cooking.

The fifth ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Orijen Dry Cat Food Fit & Trim are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Orijen recipe.

Next we have whole flounder. Whole flounder is another outstanding protein and omega-3 fatty acids source. Flounder also contains all of the necessary essential amino acids required by cats.

The next ingredient is whole mackerel. Whole mackerel is another outstanding protein and omega-3 fatty acids source. Mackerel also contains all of the necessary essential amino acids required by cats.

Then we have whole pacific hake. Although whole pacific hake is an excellent protein source, raw pacific hake contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of pacific hake is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

Moving on, we have turkey liver. Organ meats like turkey liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.

Moving on with this review, we have chicken heart. Chicken hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Chicken hearts also provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

The next ingredient in this review is dehydrated chicken. Dehydrated chicken is an excellent protein source, naturally rich in all of the essential amino acids required by cats.

dehydrated whole mackerel is the next ingredient in this recipe. Dehydrated whole mackerel is an excellent protein source, naturally rich in all of the essential amino acids required by cats.

The remaining ingredients in this Orijen Dry Cat Food recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by cats.
