Don’t be misled by diet manufacturers who claim to offer the same OpenSource diet formulas as Research Diets, Inc. Though it is true that all our formulas are open, there may be differences in the sources of ingredients or the vitamin and mineral mixes used to produce the diet. There is only one sure way to repeat research based on the "Original" OpenSource Diet formula—go to the source of that formula. There is only one place to get OpenSource Diets and that’s at Research Diets, Inc.
