Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Acana Heritage Free-Run Poultry Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

The second ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The third ingredient is chicken heart. Chicken hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Chicken hearts also provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is chicken gizzard. Chicken gizzards are meaty organ meats which provide high quality protein. They are naturally low in fat and play an important role in the digestive system of chickens and other birds. As with other organ meats, chicken gizzards are an excellent addition in the recipe.

The fifth ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Acana Heritage Free-Run Poultry Formula are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Acana recipe.

Next we have whole green pea. Whole green peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

The next ingredient is red lentil. Red lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.

The remaining ingredients in this Acana Heritage recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.
