Manufacturer's product description

" The only alternative to traditional meat and fish sources that is fully suited to your pet's digestive system.

We take whole Hermetia Illucens larvae and gently dry them to create a protein rich 'flour' that contains all of their precious nutrients and minerals.

Yora is a single protein diet, and our grubs are even easier to digest than chicken, so they're perfect for dogs with food intollerances.

We carefully researched the most nutritious vegetables that don't require as much energy and water to grow.

Potatoes, oats and beetroot all have a much lower carbon footprint to grow than rice and sweet potato. We make further savings by growing the oats right on our doorstep in the field next to our factory!

Packed with nutrition and better for everyone. "

I was considering using Yora then I saw the high carb content particularly potato. Then I saw the price.....for 3 dogs we'd soon be in the work house. Will stick with Millie's Wolfheart.

Excellent Food. Most meat based dry foods are crap and cause allergies.I am a Yora Convert. It’s also about every ethical and caring about the environment etc . I am feeding 5 German Shepherds on it for past 5 days and they love it. No stomach issues.

I find it ironic that one of the keynote benefits of insect protein is that it is significantly cheaper to produce as insects have a shorter lifespan, take up far less square footage and a generally just easier to farm. Yet for some reason Yora think it's acceptable to charge 90 flipping quid for a 12kg bag of food made from it?

The grubs used for this food are farmed and harvested in the Netherlands, as no one in England will do it with such high ethical standards or care... this is why the price is so high at the moment. The overall cost of this food is expensive, it will most likely go down in price once more people are feeding it. There is no way this food could be cheaper, at this point in time, while maintaining the quality standards that are used. :)

Hi Joseph, I'm one of the creators of Yora, and I wish you were correct! The insect ingredients we use, are from a farm in the Netherlands called Protix. They provide us with frozen whole grubs, dried insect meal and even the fats from the insect. These ingredients all cost us a lot more than their meat equivalent because it's of such a high quality and created for purpose. Most pet foods use low grade meat meal which is a lot cheaper than our raw ingredient.Hopefully over time the insects will become cheaper as competition between insect farms intensifies, and we'll be able to pass the savings onto the consumers.

Shame this is only 3.8 was hoping for better, but I suppose it's the first one of its kind

I think it only scored lower as the reviewers didn't have a score for this particular protein source. They only score foods for proteins from birds, mammals and fish ('meat'), but not from insects. So I would take the findings with a pinch of salt

Hi Freydis and thanks for posting. All of our published ratings are carefully considered and take into account all of the ingredients contained in the food. Yora isn't downgraded for its insect content as most studies show that insect meal is roughly as beneficial for dogs as generic meat meals. The main factors preventing Yora from scoring higher are its high potato content and potentially high maize content. I hope that helps.

The insect protein used in Yora has the same protein/fat ratio and levels as chicken meat, not meat meal. There are also 10 different grades of meat meal...going from awful (used in low grade foods) to really high grade (used in high grade foods), different insects also product different quality protein etc, so not sure how this statement is fair...

I'm not sure how this can be accurately scored with it being the first of it's kind and the website's scoring process does not apply to insect protein.
