Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Rolls Beef 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, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

The third ingredient is pea flour. Pea flour is made from roasted peas which have been processed into a powder. It's naturally rich in protein and dietary fiber.

The fourth ingredient is cane molasses. Cane molasses is a less refined form of sugar, made from sugar cane. It's naturally rich in various minerals including magnesium, manganese, iron, calcium, and potassium.

Cane molasses is however considered a controversial ingredient because it can raise a dogs blood sugar level, as it can with humans.

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 Wilderness Wild Rolls Beef 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 Blue Buffalo recipe.

Next we have beef broth. Beef broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, beef broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The next ingredient is sugar, which is really an unnecessary additive. It's most likely used to improve the food's palatability.

Then we have vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is a clear, orderless liquid derived from plant oils. It is often used to increase the product's moisture and/or improve palatability.

Moving on, 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.

Moving on with this review, we have pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.

The next ingredient in this review is natural flavor. The sole purpose of natural flavor is to improve palatability.

Our next ingredient is lactic acid, which is an organic compound. Lactic acid is most likely used in this recipe as a preservative.

The remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Rolls 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.
