We'll begin this review of Blue Buffalo Grain-Free Colorado Roast With Lamb, Peas & Apples with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is lamb. Although lamb is an excellent protein source, raw lamb contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of lamb 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 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 water, which increases the food's moisture content.
The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is dried egg. Dried eggs consist of shell-free eggs which are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Blue Buffalo Grain-Free Colorado Roast With Lamb, Peas & Apples 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 potato starch. Potato starch is a gluten-free ingredient extracted from potatoes. Unlike whole potatoes, the starch itself does not provide a notable amount of nutrition.
The remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo Grain-Free Colorado Roast 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 Blue Buffalo Grain-Free Colorado Roast With Lamb, Peas & Apples is 4.0 out of 5.
