We'll begin this review of Blue Buffalo Divine Delights Porterhouse Flavor In Savory Juices 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 beef broth. Beef broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, beef broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The fourth ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The fifth ingredient is chicken liver. Organ meats like chicken liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Blue Buffalo Divine Delights Porterhouse Flavor In Savory Juices 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 Blue Buffalo recipe.
Next we have carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
The next ingredient is pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.
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 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.
Moving on with this review, 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 remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo Divine Delights 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.
