    There has been a lot of great things said on this board about Orijen lately so I figured I should post this.

    I was talking to our friends that own the local feed store after agility class tonight and our conversation turned to grain-free diets. I mentioned Orijen and he was interested. He started looking for their website online and he stumbled upon Acana's website, which is made by the same company that makes Orijen.

    Acana proudly proclaims their relationship with James E. Corbin, the inventor of low-temperature extrusion processing, as the formulator of their product. Dr. Corbin is a controversial individual around here--it wasn't too long ago that he supported Purina Dog Chow as the ideal canine diet.

    Why did Jim Corbin support Purina so strongly? Because he worked for them for 20 years and that is where he developed his extrusion process.

    I thought it was interesting that Orijen uses a "proprietary low temperature cooking process" and I wonder if James Corbin had anything to do with their formulation and the way that they process their food. It probably isn't anything to worry about but its interesting that the developer of Purina may have played a role in the formulation/processing of Orijen.

    More about James Corbin:

    "When Corbin joined Ralston Purina, most pets were fed table scraps. Under his leadership, the company produced the world's first extruded animal food. Today, something that did not exist 58 years ago is a $19.4 billion pet food industry in the United States alone. Each day, the equivalent of 850 boxcars of dog and cat food is produced in the United Sates."
