Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is goat. Although goat is an excellent protein source, raw goat contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of goat 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 wild boar. Although wild boar is an excellent protein source, raw wild boar contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of wild boar 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 third ingredient is venison. Although venison is an excellent protein source, raw venison contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of venison 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 arctic char. Arctic char is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, arctic char contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of arctic char is dramatically reduced after cooking.

The fifth ingredient is duck. Duck is another outstanding protein source, naturally rich in all of the essential amino acids required by cats.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Orijen Dry Cat Food Tundra 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 mutton. Mutton is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, mutton contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of mutton is dramatically reduced after cooking.

The next ingredient is steelhead trout. Although steelhead trout is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw trout contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of trout 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.

Then we have duck liver. Duck liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, duck liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

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. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.
