Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Blackwood Adult Dog Food Chicken & Chicken Liver With Pumpkin 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 broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third 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 fourth ingredient is pumpkin. Pumpkin is an excellent carbohydrate source, rich in dietary fiber and various minerals. It's also rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The fifth ingredient is agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Blackwood Adult Dog Food Chicken & Chicken Liver With Pumpkin 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 Blackwood recipe.

Next we have 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.

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

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 next ingredient in this review is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a dog diet.

Our next ingredient is dandelion greens, which are naturally rich in vitamins A, C, and K.

The remaining ingredients in this Blackwood Adult 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.
