Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Beyond Ground Entree Grain Free Chicken, Carrot and Pea Recipe 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 water sufficient for processing, which of course provides moisture.

The third 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 fourth ingredient is carrot, which are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.

The fifth ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Beyond Ground Entree Grain Free Chicken, Carrot and Pea 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 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.

The next ingredient is carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.

Then we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.

Moving on, 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.

Moving on with this review, we have 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 Chicken, Carrot and Pea Recipe is 3.5 out of 5.
