Thanks . I wasn't sure about spelt protein, that's a grain isn't it? & dehydrated plasma protein

Re: Nutrivet Instinct


I asked elsewhere as no one else has answered you, and got told that if that member wasn't feeding another food she would give this one a go.

She also said that it is similar to Orijen - so if you want to feed it I think you should - it sounds like a good quality food.

Re: Nutrivet Instinct


I wasnt sure what spelt was but found this

What is Spelt and why do you use it?
Believed to be among the most ancient of cultivated cereals, spelt is a type of wheat that was highly favoured by the Romans. Spelt has a very low allergenic profile, so is ideally suited to dogs that have allergies to gluten. Here at Lily's Kitchen we are the only pet food to use spelt in our recipes. It's high water solubility makes Spelt very easily absorbed in the body and hence easily digested. Because it is not a hybridized grain like wheat it is higher in protein, vitamins (including B & E) & minerals.

Re: Nutrivet Instinct


and dehydrated plasma protein seems to be what they extract from blood

Plasma proteins are proteins found in the blood plasma, the clear, protein-rich fluid which is left behind when platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells are removed from the blood. These proteins play a number of important roles in the human body, and levels of plasma proteins are sometimes evaluated in a laboratory analysis to gather information about a patient's general health and specific health issues which a patient may be experiencing. Plasma proteins make up around 7% of the total blood volume, with levels which can fluctuate at times.

Ahh, thank you for doing that. Seems strange that no one else has commented, maybe it's a new food.

So it's a grain then, thought so. Never seen plasma protein in a food before

Re: Nutrivet Instinct


This variety looks pretty good to me (some others I'm less convinced by).

The meat content is:

44% fresh meat, 22% dry meat, ~12% chicken and fish oils and 2% eggs.

By any standards this is very impressive but '80% meat' is quite misleading as about 12% is added oils and 2% is egg. 44% is also fresh meat so once the moisture has been removed the true dry meat content would work out at about 39% (note that Orijen also uses a high proportion of fresh meat). Still very good but not nearly as much as it first appears.

I can't understand why they have used spelt protein . The food has a whopping 40% protein so extra protein supplementation really shouldn't be necessary and although spelt is far less allergenic than common wheat and should not cause any problems, it will still raise a lot of concerns among grain-sceptics.

Plasma protein is a good source of animal proteins, but again I can't see why they feel like they need to top-up their protein levels .

The other ingredients are really very good - an excellent variety of high quality fruits and vegetables and plenty of beneficial natural supplements.

The price is fantastic and the feeding amounts are quite low making it extremely economical to feed.

Overall, I would say that it's not quite as good as Orijen but outstanding for the money.
