Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Orijen Dry Dog Food Regional Red with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is angus beef. Although angus beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef 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 plains bison. Plains bison is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, bison contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of bison is dramatically reduced after cooking.

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

The fifth ingredient is yorkshire pork. Although yorkshire pork is an excellent protein source, raw pork contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of pork 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Orijen Dry Dog Food Regional Red 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 beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The next ingredient is beef tripe. Beef tripe is the edible lining of a cow's stomach. It's a fairly nutritious ingredient which many dog owners claim to be highly palatable.

Then we have whole sardine. Sardines are another outstanding protein and omega-3 fatty acids source. They also contain all of the necessary essential amino acids required by dogs.

Moving on, we have 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 remaining ingredients in this Orijen Dry Dog 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 dogs. 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.

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
