We’ve been fans of Balanced Blends raw food for quite some time. Our only “complaint” has been that up until now, they only had chicken and beef varieties. Allegra and Ruby love turkey, so we were delighted when Balanced Blends asked us to review their new turkey formula.

About Balanced Blends

Balanced Blends is a Boulder Colorado based company, founded by enthusiastic pet parents with a distinct curiosity and interest in pet nutrition. Initially, the three founders each prepared raw foods at home for their four-legged family members. They wanted to create a commercially available complete and balanced raw diet for cats and dogs that would help make raw feeding easy for pet parents’ busy schedules. Working with veterinarians and a PhD nutritionist, they created Balanced Blends.

They see “Balanced Raw” as more than just a balanced formulation. “Balanced Raw” begins with fresh, human-grade proteins. It continues with their formulations, which meet and exceed AAFCO and FEDIAF (The European Pet Food Industry Federation) standards. Additionally, they optimize the fat ratios, amino acids and mineral content. They take the extra safety steps incumbent on raw meals and finish with the convenience of home delivery. We see every piece to be crucial to our “Balanced Raw”.

All Balanced Blends formulas feature

• Fresh high quality human grade ingredients
• Diligently formulated recipes balancing fats, minerals and amino acids
• Food production safety including HPP in final packaging (we do not re-open after HPP)
• Convenient Home Delivery – single orders or subscriptions

Balanced Blends Raw Turkey Dinner

Balanced Blend’s new turkey formula is 98.2% meat, organs, bone and egg yolk. It does not contain any fruits or vegetables.


Putting the new turkey dinner to the test

We received a starter pack of the new turkey formula, which contains 2 pounds of food in convenient 8 ounce packages. The individual package size is perfect for us, because it’s exactly one day’s worth of food for the girls.

To say they loved the new formula would be putting it mildly. The girls are always good eaters, but there was not a speck of food left on their plates after feeding this formula!

May I have some more, please?
