Our biologically appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats your cat is evolved to eat.
Brimming with 40% richly nourishing protein, and limited to 17% low-glycemic carbohydrates to nourish cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
A full 2/3 of our meat is FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients.
Nutrient-dense WholePrey™ ratios of fresh meats (including muscle meat, organs, and cartilage) provide virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive – only zinc is added.
Our dried meats are speciallyprepared at 200°F from fresh meats to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meats alone.
Infusions of freeze-dried liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for picky cats.
Is your cat's food biologically appropriate?
Cats are hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws and digestive system are all adapted for meat concentrated diets that are rich in fresh meats and meat diversity. Biologically appropriate™ cat foods mirror the natural diet and answer 3 meat questions:
How much?ORIJEN leads its class in premium meat inclusions, all from animals deemed fit for human consumption, prior to inclusion in our foods.
How fresh?2/3 of meats are FRESH or RAW and loaded with goodness, 1/3 is dried at low temperature for a premium protein source
How many?A variety of meats in WholePrey™ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic supplments.Free-run chicken,Free-run turkey,Wild yellowtail flounder,Whole nest-laid eggs,Wild Atlantic mackerel,Wild Atlantic herring
