Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Orijen Freeze Dried Dog Food Adult Dog with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken (ground with bone). 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground chicken bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

The second ingredient is turkey (ground with bone). 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground turkey bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

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 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.

The fifth ingredient is chicken heart. Chicken hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Chicken hearts also provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Orijen Freeze Dried Dog Food Adult Dog 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 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 Freeze Dried 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.
