I had not seen this information yet. I agree that potato has no real value to a kibble other than being a non-grain carb to help bind the kibble in processing; so deleting that is no big deal.
But my question is: adding lentils and chickpeas does bring down the glycemic response, but they are also quite high in protein. As a pescatarian, lentils and chickpeas are two "go-to" foods for providing me protein. Does Orijen say what percentage of protein in the new formulas will come from meat sources?
As far as calling the re-formulated kibble "Orijen Whole Prey", that is quite disingenuous considering that their kibble is a highly-processed product just like any other kibble. But that makes them no different than any other brand trying to find a marketing angle. Just as Fromm has a dog dressed in an apron and chef's hat on their website.
I'm really not trying to put Orijen down. I think overall they offer formulas that are much better than a lot of what is on the market. But I'm always skeptical and curious when any company makes changes.
