Located in the heart of Alberta's prairies, Champion is a renowned manufacturer of high-quality dog and cat food that has been exported worldwide since 1975. Unlike typical "meal and grain" foods, ORIJEN formulas start with fresh Canadian ingredients like grain-fed chicken and fresh whole egg, produced on local farms, fresh white fish from the depths of the frozen lakes of the Canadian North, salmon, blueberries and apples from the calm waters and orchards of the coast and the Pacific Ocean. Using low temperature (90oC) processing methods, we steam our fresh ingredients in small batches to preserve their natural flavor and goodness.
FRESH REGIONAL INGREDIENTS
ORIJEN formulas use fresh, farm-grown ingredients from the fertile prairies of Western Canada and fish from the cool northern lakes and clear waters of the Pacific.
ORIJEN meats are free of hormones and antibiotics and are processed under the highest standards of food processing in Canada.
FRESH ALBERTA CHICKEN
Fresh chicken is the first ingredient in all ORIJEN foods, a superior source of high-quality protein. Our prairie chickens are grain-fed (no animal by-products) and free of hormones and antibiotics. Raised “free range” instead of controlled cages, our human-grade chicken meat is processed under Canada's highest food safety standards and arrives at our plant fresh – never frozen or desiccated.
WILD CATCH WHITE FISH
Our lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) are from the frigid depths of the ancient lakes of northern Alberta and Saskatchewan and arrive at our plant fresh – never frozen or dried. Rich in healthy omega 3 fatty acids – including DHA and EPA – the white fish contains more omega-3 fatty acids than pink or sockeye salmon. A member of the salmon family, lake white fish is native to Canada and is a superior source of protein in all ORIJEN foods. It is delicate, the white meat has a long, great-tasting fiber rich in phosphorus, selenium, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamins B6 and B12, magnesium, zinc, potassium and riboflavin.
FARM FRESH EGG
As one of nature's most perfect foods, fresh eggs are an excellent source of easily digestible and highly palatable protein, with a complex natural combination of amino acids, perfectly suited for cats and dogs. Processed under the highest standards Canada's food safety and quality standards, the whole egg arrives fresh from Alberta producers - never frozen, never desiccated.
As one of the few foods that naturally contain Vitamin D (which enhances calcium's job in maintaining strong, healthy bones), the whole fresh egg is also rich in lutein and zeaxanthin = important carotenoids that are better absorbed from eggs than from other foods. plants like spinach or carrots.
HERBS AND PLANTS
The Alberta Natural Health Agricultural Network ANHAN represents Alberta's natural plant growers. Selected by certified holistic veterinarians, ORIJEN contains herbal formulas (groups of plants) that provide synergistic effects.
For example, marshmallow, radicchio, burdock, and psyllium are all sources of soluble fiber that combine to provide key nutritional benefits including:
Optimize bacterial populations
Promotes the health of the intestinal epithelium
Reduces postprandial insulin levels, especially in dogs
Marshmallow is also an anti-inflammatory that coats the mantle of the gastrointestinal tract and softens the epithelium of the respiratory tract, helping to stop coughing.
FLAX SEED FROM CANADA
Flaxseed comes from the blue-flowered plant grown in the cool climate of the prairies of western Canada.
Canadian brown flaxseed is the favorite choice of consumers, the omega 3 fatty acids and fiber of flaxseed are nutrients that contribute to health.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: About 42% of flaxseed is oil and more than 70% of that oil is polyunsaturated fat, a healthy fat. Flaxseed also contains 57% of the important omega-3 fatty acid ALA.
LIGNANS: Flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of lignans. Lignans are phytoestrogens-components that have been shown in laboratory animal studies to help protect against certain types of cancer, particularly breast and colon cancer, by blocking tumor formation.
