Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Beyond Ground Entree Grain Free Beef, Potato and Green Bean Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The second ingredient is chicken. Chicken is the most common meat ingredient used in dog food. It provides high-quality protein and fat. However, more than 60% of chicken is water.

The third ingredient is water sufficient for processing. Of course, water only provides moisture, which is a necessary component in wet foods.

The fourth ingredient is liver. Liver is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous animal ingredients are typically very low quality and may contain almost any animal, including dogs and cats!

The fifth ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Beyond Ground Entree Grain Free Beef, Potato and Green Bean Recipe 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 Beyond recipe.

Next we have green bean. Green beans are an excellent source of dietary fiber and various vitamins and minerals.

The next ingredient is guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.

Then we have carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.

Moving on, we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

Moving on with this review, we have 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.

The next ingredient in this review is choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).

The remaining ingredients in this Beyond Ground Entree 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Beyond Ground Entree Grain Free Beef, Potato and Green Bean Recipe is 4.5 out of 5.
