BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ FREEZE-DRIED FOODS
FREE-RUN CHICKEN AND TURKEY, WILD-CAUGHT HERRING AND FLOUNDER PLUS NEST-LAID EGGS
DOGS ARE BIOLOGICALLY ADAPTED TO THRIVE ON A VARIED DIET OF FRESH WHOLE MEATS, WITH SMALL AMOUNTS OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES, AND GRASSES.
FREEZE-DRYING — THE GOLD STANDARD OF FOOD PRESERVATION
Our ultimate Biologically Appropriate™ freeze-dried food reflects the evolutionary diet — locking in all the flavor and nutritional benefits of raw foods, just as Mother Nature intended. Prepared without cooking, ORIJEN Freeze-Dried foods retain the natural goodness of our authentically fresh ingredients.
Our award-winning kitchens are equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze our fresh regional ingredients at extremely low temperatures (-60°F), to retain their life-giving nutrients. Then during a slow 18-hour freeze-drying process, the frozen water is converted directly into vapor, without creating any liquid. This means only water is gently removed from our fresh ingredients, leaving behind richly nourishing goodness in concentrated form, for a taste experience your dog will truly love.

To speed rehydration, break medallions into three pieces, place in a bowl and pour warm water over the top.
