Kibble vs cold pressed pellets

I am deciding between kibble (Orijen, Acana, Instinct) or cold pressed pellets. What is better? Pros and cons of each one? I would be suplementing with raw also.

Hello and welcome to the forum. There is a useful explanation about types of food here. We also have a thread about cold pressed foods here. This video demonstrates the difference in digestion/absorption.

Most dry food is extruded which means that they are cooked at high temperatures. Cold pressed food is processed at lower temperatures except for the carbohydrate content which the dog could not digest unless it was cooked properly. The lower temperature is said to be beneficial because it enables more of the nutritional value to be maintained. They have a shorter shelf life than extruded foods. Cold pressed foods are said to be suitable for dogs who are partially raw fed.
