The first ingredient in this dog food is cornmeal, a coarsely ground flour made from dried corn. Corn is an inexpensive and controversial cereal grain of only modest nutritional value to a dog.

For this reason, we do not consider corn a preferred component in any dog food.

The second ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is considered a meat concentrate and contains nearly 300% more protein than fresh chicken.

The third ingredient is chicken fat. Chicken fat is obtained from rendering chicken, a process similar to making soup in which the fat itself is skimmed from the surface of the liquid.

Chicken fat is high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid essential for life. Although it doesn’t sound very appetizing, chicken fat is actually a quality ingredient.

The fourth ingredient is beet pulp. Beet pulp is a controversial ingredient, a high fiber by-product of sugar beet processing.

Some denounce beet pulp as an inexpensive filler while others cite its outstanding intestinal health and blood sugar benefits.

We only call your attention here to the controversy and believe the inclusion of beet pulp in reasonable amounts in most dog foods is entirely acceptable.

The fifth item is lamb meal, another protein-rich meat concentrate.

The sixth ingredient is menhaden fish meal, yet another high protein meat concentrate.

Menhaden are small ocean fish related to herring. They’re rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. What’s more, in their mid-depth habitat, menhaden are not exposed to mercury contamination as can be typical with deep water species.

Fish meal is typically obtained from the “clean, dried, ground tissue of undecomposed whole fish and fish cuttings” of commercial fish operations.1

Unfortunately, the controversial chemical ethoxyquin is frequently used as a preservative in fish meals.

But because it’s usually added to the raw fish before processing, the chemical does not have to be reported to consumers.

We find no public assurances from the company this product is ethoxyquin-free.

Without knowing more, and based upon this fish meal’s location on the list of ingredients, we would expect to find at least a trace of ethoxyquin in this product.

The seventh ingredient is chicken liver meal, a dried, nutritious product made from whole chicken livers. Because it contains about 62% protein and 20% fat, this item makes a favorable addition to this dog food.

The eighth ingredient is dried egg product, a dehydrated form of shell-free eggs. Quality can vary significantly. Lower grade egg product can even come from commercial hatcheries — from eggs that have failed to hatch.

In any case, eggs are easy to digest and have an exceptionally high biological value.

The ninth ingredient is dried cheese, a dairy-based product containing little (if any) lactose.

From here, the list goes on to include a number of other items.

But to be realistic, ingredients located this far down the list (other than nutritional supplements) are not likely to affect the overall rating of this product.

With four notable exceptions

First, we find yeast culture. Although yeast culture is high in B-vitamins and protein, it can also be used as a probiotic to aid in digestion.

Next, cod liver oil, is a fish oil known to be rich in both EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids as well as vitamins A and D.

In addition, we note the inclusion of dried fermentation products in this recipe. Fermentation products are typically added to provide enzymes to aid the animal with digestion.

And lastly, this food also contains chelated minerals, minerals that have been chemically attached to protein. This makes them easier to absorb. Chelated minerals are usually found in better dog foods.

Kumpi Dog Food
The Bottom Line

Judging by its ingredients alone, Kumpi looks like an average dry dog food.

But ingredient quality by itself cannot tell the whole story. We still need to estimate the product’s meat content before determining a final rating.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 24%, a fat level of 14% and estimated carbohydrates of about 53%.

As a group, the brand features an average protein content of 26% and a mean fat level of 14%. Together, these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 53% for the overall product line.

And a fat-to-protein ratio of about 54%.

Near-average protein. Below-average fat. And above-average carbs when compared to a typical dry dog food.

Free of any plant-based protein boosters, this looks like the profile of a kibble containing a modest amount of meat.

Bottom line?

Kumpi is a corn-based kibble using a modest amount of chicken meal as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand 3 stars.

Recommended.

Please note some products may have been given higher or lower ratings based upon our estimate of their total meat content.

    Finally out of business. From the website: “The Kumpi years have been some of the best of my life. However, the
    clash between marketing and science have made the product line
    unsustainable. ”

    So glad to see it gone.

  • InkedMarie

    Dr Mike can only go by what is on a website when he does reviews. All foods go through the same process. If what you say is true, I don’t think it would change the rating; he’d have to contact each individual dog food company to find out such information. If all this is true and if that makes it a better food, that’s great

  • DTMaximus

    Well, the whole corn argument is irrelevant anyway… she is, in fact, developing a new formula that won’t have cornmeal as the first ingredient. I don’t know the details (like I said, I don’t work there anymore), but I believe the new food will be available by the end of the year.

    So if you take the cornmeal off the table, Dr. Mike had a lot of good things to say about a lot of the rest of the ingredients. 4 out of the top 8 ingredients are quality protein sources. I think the worst thing he said about some of the rest of them was that one was “entirely acceptable.” =) Plus the extras that he listed at the end that help with digestion… that’s a good thing too!

    So… after the new formula is released, I hope Dr. Mike will do a new assessment. (Dr. Mike – please let us know when you do!)

  • Pattyvaughn

    A better grade of bad ingredients is not going to bring up the rating, more meat protein would though.

  • Storm’s Mom

    If that’s true about the cornmeal, why not just do away with cornmeal in the food at all?!?!? If it’s costing that much for cornmeal, why not just instead by a bit more chicken meal and/or a better filler like peas, tapioca or something??? Why waste good money on CORN, no matter how “high quality”???

  • DTMaximus

    I’d like to weigh in on this conversation. I come from a slightly different point of view than the rest of you. I used to work for Kumpi, doing books and office work for her on-and-off for about 3 years. I moved to Texas over two years ago and still get Kumpi shipped to me here for my cats.

    Anyway, part of the reason the reviewer on this website gave the dog food a 3-star rating is because he makes some assumptions that are simply inaccurate. They are normally good assumptions to make, especially if you don’t know, but in this case he “guessed” a few things wrong.

    First, the cornmeal… what the person rating these foods may or may not realize is that there are 5 grades of corn available for this. What the owner of the website “assumed” was that she would want to save money and use the lowest-grade corn like most pet food companies would do. That’s very inaccurate. She actually spends the money on the highest-grade corn available. I was actually in her office the day she took a call from the president of some Westie dog club… apparently, according to him, the Westie breed is notoriously allergic to corn, and yet no Westie in their club had ever shown any allergic reaction to Kumpi… and he wanted to know why! She proceeded to explain to him that it’s the lower-grade corn that dogs can have issues with, but hers was the highest grade available.

    Another thing I’d like to draw your attention to is where the reviewer says, “Lower grade egg product can even come from commercial hatcheries — from eggs that have failed to hatch.” That may be a true statement, but saying it suggests that he assumes she is using lower-grade ingredients in her food, which she does not.

    Those two things alone should raise the rating to at least 4 stars, if not higher.

    I can give you an example of coming up with the best ingredients… one story is how she decided which kelp was the most nutritious kelp to put in the cat food. The nutritionist obtained kelp from all over the world, fed it to his parrot, and then ran tests on the parrot’s droppings. THAT’s how he figured out that the kelp from the waters of Nova Scotia was the most nutritious, and that’s what she uses and pays for.

    Also, Hound Dog Mom states, “It may be true that Kumpi is a small company that sources ingredients from the US – but they still use low quality ingredients that aren’t species-appropriate for a dog.” I don’t know who Hound Dog Mom is in the real world, but I’m not sure how she can say those words so factually without having worked for Kumpi Pet Foods. I paid the bills… I know how expensive her ingredients were. And the probiotics she adds (like all pet foods add to put lost vitamins and minerals back in after the baking process) is over 10 TIMES more expensive than what the main pet food manufacturers use.

    The food may be expensive, but like a few of you have stated, it’s NOT the most expensive out there. The difference is that your dollars go to paying for those high-quality ingredients. She keeps a VERY low overhead over there. She doesn’t spend anything on marketing… word of mouth is what’s made her company grow over the past 15 years. In the Denver area you may hear a radio commercial on one particular radio station, but they give her that spot for free. Even the bag… did you know that the shiny coating of every dog food bag you see is a minimum cost of $5 per bag?? She doesn’t have that shiny coating on her 35# dog food bag because she couldn’t fathom raising her price another $5 per bag for something the dog isn’t even going to eat!

    Before she changed the bag sizes for the cats (I don’t have a dog, so I can’t give insight there), I was getting the 20# bags for $70 each (which INCLUDES shipping). Mind you, the cat food is more expensive than the dog food. It takes my 2 cats FOUR MONTHS to go through that 20# bag… that’s only $17.50 a month, and I have no problem paying that, especially with the results I get and the peace of mind it gives. And even after YEARS of feeding them the same food, day after day, year after year, they STILL come running and start gobbling up their food when they hear me filling their bowls.

    And one last thing… I was also there the day she took the call from the FDA letting her know she was officially allowed to put “Nothing From China” on her bags. The other pet food companies can say they source their ingredients in the United States, but they can’t say “nothing from China” because their U.S. suppliers still get their ingredients from China. Hers do not, and it’s been certified by the FDA, so she can legally say “Nothing From China.”

    I can tell you more stories from the offices of Kumpi Pet Foods (like how Kumpi became the ONLY donated dog food to make it to the rescue dogs at 9/11 instead of being rejected and re-routed to shelters like ALL of the other donated food was.), but this comment is already long enough. Just know that I was there, and some of you who speak so matter-of-factly were not.

  • Hound Dog Mom

    It appears Kumpi is no longer making the senior or puppy formulas.

  • Daala

    Kumpi is amazing. I give out samples of the food I buy and ship to California to everyone I know so their dogs can try it too.

    My min-pin is 4 years old and after going through various other top shelf brands I tried Kumpi. People always compliment my dog’s coat and Vets are astounded by how healthy she is.

    Now when I feed her other brands of dog food her bathroom habits become unpredictable and irregular and she always seems to be hungry. On Kumpi her stool is regular, almost no smell and healthy in color, appearance and size, she also rarely has gas when eating Kumpi.

    I used to live in Colorado, where Kumpi is plentiful, so I do agree that paying to ship it to Los Angeles is not ideal. I’ve asked local pet stores to carry Kumpi but, for whatever reasons, no one has yet put the product on their shelf. I hope that changes soon.

    If you are in Colorado, Vitamin Cottage regularly has samples of Kumpi dog and cat food – just ask. If not, give Evy a call. She has always been willing to chat with me to answer any questions or to explain her product in depth and after 1 phone call you will feel her genuineness and honesty and I’ll bet you too will become an advocate for Kumpi.

    I am content in the knowledge that Evy has made a quality product with the health and well-being of dogs and cats at the forefront rather than profit. Evy’s doing this for the love and health of our pets and for that I thank her.

  • Pattyvaughn

    If people really liked this food you would think there would be more than nine positive comments in over two years time. Unless only nine people feed it.

  • Hound Dog Mom

    “All your ‘good’ dog foods are still owned by giant parent companies who use the same trash they get from china.”

    That is an extremely inaccurate statement. It may be true that Kumpi is a small company that sources ingredients from the US – but they still use low quality ingredients that aren’t species-appropriate for a dog. There are numerous small companies that also manufacture their food in the US but use higher quality, more species-approrpiate ingredients. I don’t need to try this food to see the results because my dogs don’t eat corn-based diets consisting a mere 22% protein. My dogs eat fresh human-grade food high in animal-based protein and if I were to feed kibble I would never settle on a formula with corn as the first ingredient and only 22% protein regardless of how much I liked the company and where the food was made.

  • Adam Sherman

    It sounds to me like everyone who has actually TRIED Kumpi stands by it 1000% while all the critics are people who have never even tried it. There is NO other dog food on this site that I am aware of that boast every single comment being positive from people who have actually tried using the dog food, that’s incredible. Has anybody tried kumpi and had a negative experience/opinion?? Seriously, I would like to know because I am about to make the switch. My guess is no. I am lucky enough to live in one of the places it actually retails, Emporia, KS. The fact that ZERO ingredients come from china, they have never had a recall, and this company is owned by one lady is reason enough for me to make the switch. All your “good” dog foods are still owned by giant parent companies who use the same trash they get from china.

  • Hound Dog Mom

    I’ll be honest – Kumpi isn’t a horrible food, definitely not great but not horrible. My issue is the price. It’s an average food that doesn’t contain a whole lot of meat and it runs $55 for 32 lbs. and, as I understand, most people have to order it because it has a very limited number of retailers and with shipping it costs nearly $80 for a 32 lb. bag. I just cannot fathom paying nearly $80 for 32 lbs. of a 3 star food that has only 22% protein and has corn as the first ingredient. That’s madness. You could get a 5 star food for that price. Now – if Kumpi ran about $30-$40 for a 32 lb. bag and people didn’t have to pay shipping I’d say it was a reasonably priced, reasonably quality food.

  • Pattyvaughn

    Of course Kumpi will tell you how great they are, so will Bil-Jac, but I won’t feed that to my dog either. But I also won’t feed the same food for an extended period of time any more than I would eat the same food for an extended period myself. Don’t believe a company that is trying to sell you something that you should buy their product and nothing else. There is no such thing as a perfect food. Variety is the only way to make sure you are covering all your nutritional bases, for you and your dog.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dark.squirrel.victoria Victoria DarkSquirrel

    I totally stand behind Kumpi. My 3 year old GSD has never ate anything else and is the picture of heath. My breeder feeds Kumpi and has 30+ years of experience plus is the Director of our local animal shelter. Read the Kumpi story and make your own conclusions on why to feed this food.

  • JellyCat

    Shari,
    Kumpi is not the worst food out there; however it is not great. Carbs in this food are really high. This food is very high in carbs. You should not feed food with carb levels over 45%.

    Corn in this food has no nutritional value to your dogs.
    It is completely inappropriate to feed cats food made with grains. Cats are obligate carnivores and cannot handle rice and oatmeal so their nutritionist is useless. They only keep nutritionist to answer phone calls to create an impression of good quality product.
    By the way there are many foods that are cheaper and are made with better quality ingredients that are not sourced from China. There are also brands that never had a recall.
    Considering how expensive this food is, the manufacturer is ripping you off.

  • Hound Dog Mom

    Hi Shari –

    Kumpi is by no means a horrible food, but it’s definitely mid-grade. It’s wonderful that you’re experiencing such great results and I certainly would understand feeding a 3 star food for budget reasons, but this food is not cheap.$55 for a 32 lb. bag, I had shipping calculated for where I lived and it came up to $76!!! You could get a 5 star food for that price or less. If you can’t find a 5 star food locally there are numerous websites that ship for free (wag, petflow, doggie food, etc.). I just can’t understand someone wanting to pay a premium price for a mediocre food. What were you feeding your animals before Kumpi? If you were feeding an even lower quality food obviously you would see benefits in your animals. Have you ever tried a 4 or 5 star food?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=533736088 Shari Lynn Mower Hagewood

    I have all my dogs and cats eating Kumpi. Started many years ago and the difference in their overall health has been tremendous. Visits to the vet are for vaccines, not health problems. I do know that this year they are planning on offering food without cornmeal since that is such a concern for many people. It is still in development. All ingredients for Kumpi are from the USA, all human grade, no Chinese ingredients, no gluten. Each batch is tested and they have NEVER had a recall.

    I currently have 3 dogs and four cats on Kumpi and all are thriving. No doggie smell, their poop is much more compact and not nearly as odorous. I am on SSDI and my husband has been out of work for three years now. Kumpi isn’t the most expensive food out there, and it is produced in a private label facility. The owner of the food who developed it inconjunction with a nutritionist when she kept seeing dogs die young actually answers the phone herself when you call the company. Shipping is expensive but that is not the fault of Kumpi and I will continue keeping my pets on this food. It has more than paid for itself in lower vet bills.

    Hi Melissaandcrew,

    Pretty sure I never mentioned that is was a “bonus selling point”.  I’m never really sure why people feel the need to attack someone’s comments/opinion on a board.  That was just my take on the food.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andrea-Rossi/100003099599979 Andrea Rossi

    I rescued a 1.5 year old pit bull terrier and have been feeding him KUMPI for 2 months now. He loves it and his fur has suuuch an improvement. I feel at peace because KUMPI has never had a recall. It seems like Blue Buffalo has CONSTANT recalls. You can personally email EVY at KUMPI and get answers. Ive wanted to switch to another food that I didnt have to mail order but just cant bring myself to do it.

    I am one of the few here that has no problem with a corn containing food in my rotation from time to time. Sorry, even with that, I can not get on board with feeding a food that starts with corn(or cornmeal) or potato etc for that matter. I would not even use this in  my rotation.

    If the food works for your dogs, and is within your budget, great. But please do not think the cornmeal is a “bonus selling point” as to why one should use it. Its not.

  • Shawna

    “Cornmeal is not a common cause for dog food allergies”.

    I would say that this is true but there is a but — allergies to food are not particularly common in dogs.  However, food intolerances are quite common. And corn causes food intolerances. 

    Corn is also one of only four foods that is known to damage the little hairs in the small intestines that absorb the nutrien ts from the foods we eat.  When these hairs (called villi) are damaged (called villous atrophy) malnutrition can result.  However, the animal (or person) can remain at a proper weight or even be over weight but still be malnourished in vitamins and minerals..

    Corn is also the most genetically modified crop in the US — last I read at least.  Genetically modified foods can be dangerous.

    Corn is easy to digest but the amino acids found in the protein part are not well utilized at a cellular level (called bioavailability).  Corn has a low bioavailibility.

    Corn has a “glycoprotein” in it called a lectin.  Lots of foods have lectins but some are more damaging then others.  Grains in general have lectins that are damaging.  Those lectins can cause GI issues like IBD or colitis.  But they also have a more sinister side — they can actually “cause” autoimmune diseases..

    I wouldn’t feed a food with corn in it for anything — let alone a food with corn as the first ingredient…

  • deec

    I spoke with a trainer that sells this at length and decided that this was the right food for my dogs!  Its been 5 days, and I already can see a difference.  My Boxer/Pit mix no longer smells, which was one of my first issues.  The more I have read the Kumpi website and understand about Corn being the first ingredient the better I have felt about what I am feeding them.  Cornmeal is not hard to digest for dogs, and is not a common cause for dog food allergies.  The second ingredient is Chicken meal which means the chicken had most of the moisture removed from it: “Chicken Meal” is approximately 6% – 8% moisture and 65% protein.
    I would much rather feed my dog this, then most dog foods out there.  And for the record they LOVE it.  Even the cat comes running when I open the container to feed the dogs.

  • S.R.

    just wanted to ask you about your digs being on Kumpi.My family is considering feeding to our new pup & I would like some input if you don’t mind.

  • Hshyland

     It all depends on what exactly your dog is allergic to. Corn is actually NOT one of the most common causes of dog food allergies. The most common triggers are proteins. Here is a list of common allergens:

    BeefDairyChickenLambFishCornWheatSoyYeast

  • Hshyland

    Kumpi ingredients are tested before, during, and after processing, and are all held to human baking standards. I believe the suspicion you are trying to spread about things like ethoxyquin are little more than panic-mongering and misinformation.

  • tanya

     Bob – I wanted to weigh in here.  We have had three dogs, all Kumpi fed.  When we moved from CO we decided to try a different food that we would not have to mail order.  We scoured the shelves for the highest quality foods we could find.  We finally found one we felt ok about trying. Feeding the same amount as we had fed on Kumpi – we found that our dogs had multiple, large, excessively foul smelling BM’s.  Our male was lethargic and we also found that our dogs shed a lot more and their coats were not as lush.  It did not take long before we decided shipping was not an issue.  Back on Kumpi our male was playing like a pup again.  Even if I am remiss in my poo duties, you can not smell poop in my back yard – EVER.  Their stools are smaller and there are fewer of them.  Coats are shiny and smooth, shedding is back to normal.  We often get stopped in parks so people can ask who grooms our dogs — the answer is no one.  We just eat our Kumpi!!!!

  • RW Reas

    My 12 year old lab mix has shown remarkable digestive improvement since switching to Kumpi. And, her coat and skin glow! She weighs around 50lbs, eats 2 cups/day and healthier and calmer than when she came back to me nearly 4 years ago.

  • Bob K

    Kris – What were the problems with all the other dog foods you tried? Exactly what other Corn and Chicken meal based dog foods have you tried without success? There are dozens of similar 3 star food. There is nothing special about this food and the Carbs are very high.

    Your comments about his BM’s are not exactly correct as he is pooping less since he is eating less as you stated. The food is probably more nutritionally dense compared to many other 1 and 2 star foods. Its simple less in less out.

  • Kris

    I rescued our German Shepherd and tried almost every dog food out there….. My trainer turned me on to Kumpi and after reviewing the product info I started him on it. First, I now have to feed him less – he eats 2 cups a day -and maintains his weight. His coat is unbelievably shiny and soft – the vet couldn’t get over it. His BM’s are smaller and more compact, meaning he’s retaining more of the nutritional value of the food. I was going through way more dog food and he was having huge BM’s….. He has a sensitive stomach, and we have been on kumpi for 3 years and love it…..

  • Amy

    I was hesitant to try this food based on the first ingredient being corn. However, it was highly recommended to me by a breeder that I know and trust. My German Shepherd has had horrible intestinal troubles, and had a dull, dry coat. I tried so many other high quality foods that she just did not do well on at all. I also rescued a Aussie/Lab that had all sorts of skin problems and a horrible coat. In both cases, when I switched the to Kumpi, the difference was AMAZING. Both coats are super shiny and incredibly soft. They have great energy, good stools, and get compliments all the time on their coats. I have worked with 20+ dogs since (I train service dogs and foster) and fed each one Kumpi. I have yet to have one that doesn’t thrive on it and who’s coat does not improve drastically on it. I always tell people read your dog – watch your dog’s coat, stools, energy level, and overall appearance. If it works for your dog, go with it!

  • Kira

    I’d like some input from the community. I am receivingmy successor service dog soon and I’ve been told that he is eating Kumpi. They said they switched to this from Life’s Abundance because he was experiencing allergies. My first problem is that I’m on disability and cannot afford to pay $60/bag for dog food combined with the $40/bag dog food for my retiring service dog. The second is that it doesn’t seem to me that Kumpi would aid in relieving allergies. It’s corn based and some ingredients are suspected to cause allergies. Can anyone make a suggestion and offer guidance on this particular dog food?
