Since foods like Orijen came across to the UK there has been a small rise in interest in feeding what has been termed an 'Ancestral Diet' to dogs, and this seems to have resulted in a few more brangs appearing, including Eden, offering what is essentially a food based on an 80:20 meat to veg and cereal free recipe which is much higher in protein and fat than the majority of foods available.
A recent DNA study has come to the conclusion that modern dogs are more adapted to eat diets containing starch than their wolf ancestors.
Difficult to criticise the ingredients which are pretty sound, it's more the thinking behind the 80:20 diet that needs investigating more fully, as dogs are not wolves any longer, and the science seems to suggest that genetic selection over generations has resulted in an animal which thrives on a diet more akin to human than wolf!
Be careful to introduce a food like this over a period of about a week, as it is far higher in protein and fat than regular dog foods.
At around £58 - £66 for 12kg this is very expensive indeed, and there are natural foods avaiable at almost half this price.
The star rating is based not just on quality of ingredients, but if the food offers value for money!
