We'll begin this review of AvoDerm All Life Stages Dog Food Triple Protein Meal Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first 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 second ingredient is ground whole brown rice. Ground whole brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, ground whole brown rice is easy to digest.
The third ingredient is lamb meal. Lamb meal is produced by cooking lamb using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of lamb and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is ground whole white rice. Ground whole white rice is produced by removing the husk, germ, and bran of rice grains. Unlike brown rice which contains the bran and germ, white rice is nutritionally empty.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in AvoDerm All Life Stages Dog Food Triple Protein Meal 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 AvoDerm recipe.
Next we have oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.
The next ingredient is ground barley. Ground barley is a nutritious carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and various minerals. Unlike pearled barley, regular barley contains the entire grain.
Then we have oat flour. Oat flour is a nutritious carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber, B-vitamins, and several essential minerals.
Moving on, we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fat is an important part of your dogs diet, chicken fat in particular is an outstanding source of omega-6 fatty acids.
Moving on with this review, we have rice bran. Rice grains can be divided into three components: bran, germ, and endosperm. The bran is the outer layer of the grain. The bran is an excellent fiber source, it also provide all three macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) and various vitamins and minerals.
The next ingredient in this review is apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Our next ingredient is avocado. Avocados are a controversial ingredient in dog food, mainly because of potential toxicity concerns. We believe these concerns are largely due to misinformation.
Avocados are nutritionally dense with a notable amount of vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and healthy fats. In addition, avocados are believed to be beneficial to the skin and coat of dogs.
tomato pomace is the next ingredient in this recipe. Tomato pomace is a by-product of tomato manufacturing. It's considered a controversial ingredient because many people believe it is an inexpensive low quality filler. However, tomato pomace provides a notable amount of dietary fiber, B vitamins, Lycopene, and vitamin A. Although it is a very inexpensive ingredient, it is not nutritionally empty.
Next on the list is alfalfa meal. Alfalfa meal is produced from the alfalfa flowering plant. it's rich in plant based protein, dietary fiber, and various vitamins and minerals.
The next ingredient in this recipe is flaxseed. Flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.
Next we have natural flavor, which is used to enhance the flavor of the food.
The next ingredient is salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and dogs. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
Then we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
Moving on, we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
The remaining ingredients in this AvoDerm All Life Stages Dog Food 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.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for AvoDerm All Life Stages Dog Food Triple Protein Meal Formula is 5.0 out of 5.
