About Orijen Freeze-Dried
Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Food has a simple and strong vision to deliver the best and freshest ingredients gently freeze-dried so your dog will receive all the benefits of raw food!
It is has been noted that your dog is a close relative of the wolf. Being so genetically close and evolved as carnivores, all dogs are biologically adapted to thrive on a diet of varied whole meats with small amounts of fresh fruits, berries and grasses. This is why the freeze-dried recipe is packed with 90% fresh meat ingredients, 10% fresh fruits, vegetables and botanicals, and 0% grain, potato or GMO.
Whole Prey Diet
The idea behind a whole prey diet is relates to the "biologically appropriate" philosophy. Since dogs have evolved as carnivores, they are accustomed to eating whole prey, including richly nourishing liver, heart, bone marrow and cartilage. The benefit of a whole prey diet is it supplies essential vitamins and minerals in their natural form, reducing the need for synthetic ingredients. This is how your dog would have naturally obtained its nutrients in the wild, thus nourishing your dog completely.
Fresh, Regional Ingredients
To eliminate the confusion of the term ‘fresh’, Orijen’s definition of fresh ingredients means Never Frozen, Preservative Free, and Authentic. To sustain such a degree of freshness, this means ingredients are delivered daily, arriving within a day or two of harvest and the only means of preservation is refrigeration. Not only are the ingredients fresh, they are tested to be "fit for human consumption."
To reach the quality of food this company has achieved, Orijen refuses to use ingredients from unknown sources. Therefore, all ingredients are regionally and locally sourced within Canada. The quality of ingredients from these sources is unmatched by any other dog food.
Freeze-dried dog food provides the benefits of raw food combined with the ease of serving kibble. Unlike conventional dog foods, Orijen’s Freeze-Dry food is made without cooking, but rather with unique flash-freezing techniques. This locks in all the flavor and nutrients, getting the most out the regionally fresh ingredients.
Low Glycemic Formula
Your dog’s natural diet typically contains very few carbohydrates. Therefore, this dog food is potato-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates in conventional dog food. The benefit of a low glycemic food is it does not a create a spike in blood sugar which can lead to weight. Rather, a low glycemic food will cause the blood sugar to rise at a more consistent rate, making weight management easier while providing the energy your dog needs.
Dogs will naturally seek out certain plants and weeds to enhance their bodies. The benefit of these botanical inclusions is they serves as tonics and builders to strengthen organs and tissues, as well as aid in digestion. Botanicals also aid in eliminating toxins by stimulating processes such as cleansing of the liver.
Source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin
The fresh poultry, fish, and meats provide a rich and 100% natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin. These supplements are essential for healthy joints and mobility.
