With 40% richly nourishing protein, and limited to 20% low-glycemic carbohydrates to nourish cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs. Free of rendered poultry meals, 1/3 of the meats are from dehydrated chicken and turkey (air-dried at low temperature from fresh meat) for a concentrated source of nourishing protein. Unmatched by any other food, 2/3 of the meats are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients. Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs. Infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for picky eaters.
MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH Made with 90% premium meat ingredients, ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 40% which closely replicates the natural feline diet.
FREEZE DRY INFUSIONS Each ORIJEN morsel is infused with freeze-dried meats and liver (prepared in our very own freeze-dry kitchens) and is bursting with the natural savory flavors that all cats love.
RICH IN HEALTHY FATS Animal fats are essential for your cat’s peak health. That’s why ORIJEN Cat & Kitten features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh poultry, fish and egg ingredients.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH Fresh saltwater fish are a Biologically Appropriate™ source of DHA and EPA, which are essential for your cat’s immune and nervous systems. DHA and EPA are not available from plant sources, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
LOW CARB, LOW GLYCEMIC Your cat’s natural diet contains few, if any carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is free of high-glycemic ingredients like potato and tapioca, and contains less than half the carbohydrates of conventional cat foods.
Biologically Appropriate Commitment
Dogs and cats are built like their ancestors, and that's why all of Orijen's recipes are based on five biologically appropriate principles. They start with a variety of unmatched fresh meat inclusions that are rich in protein. Orijen includes whole prey ratios that naturally provide the nutrients your dog needs. Carbs are limited, but there are plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and cleansing botanicals.
Quality, Sustainable Ingredients
Orijen believes you have a right to know where the ingredients in your dog's food come from. From nest-laid eggs and wild northern pike to juicy orchard-grown apples and crisp garden greens, each ingredient is sourced from local producers they know and trust.
