Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Acana Heritage (Canadian) Sport and Agility with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The second 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.

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

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is chicken fat, which provides a healthy dose of omega-6 fatty acids.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Acana Heritage (Canadian) Sport and Agility 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 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.

Then we have chicken heart. Chicken hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Chicken hearts also provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

Moving on, we have chicken kidney. Chicken kidney is an excellent protein source which also provides a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

Moving on with this review, we have herring meal. Herring meal is produced by a process called rendering. In short, the rendering process involves cooking herring until the moisture level falls below 10%. By removing the moisture, we're left with a concentrated protein powder made with herring (i.e. herring meal).

The remaining ingredients in this Acana Heritage (Canadian) 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.
