|Charlie, congrats on the job. WOOT!
I don't subscribe to alpha theory as behavior goes, but I think this approach has a degree of merit to the extent it encourages us to think about the degree of variety *within the same animal* that we are feeding. Feeding different cuts is supposed to be the way to go with whole prey model. I try to do it as much as possible.
So yea, I think adding in extra heart, tripe or lung would add a lot of value. I would LOVE to get my hands on some lung but have yet to find a source. Duke eats a lot of tripe; at least two full meals per week. And heart is at least one full meal (spread out, though, it's rich stuff!).
It doesn't seem to me that the product is endorsing over-doing it on organ. Here's the ingredient list from the beef product:
Beef, beef tripe, beef lung, ground beef bone, beef liver, beef heart, beef kidney, beef blood, beef fat, herring oil (natural source of vitamin D), d-alpha tocopherol (natural vitamin E), mixed tocopherols (natural antioxidant)
Debates over alpha theory aside, this food looks good to me! Their 45% "vital organ" isn't all secreting organ. I would definitely feed this diet to Duke when we travel (it's just easier...he eats too much to portion out individual meals of meat/bone/organ).
