We'll begin this review of Bravo Homestyle Complete Turkey Dinner with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The third ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.
The fourth ingredient is chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
The fifth ingredient is turkey heart. Turkey hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Turkey hearts also supply a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Bravo Homestyle Complete Turkey Dinner 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 Bravo recipe.
Next we have green bean. Green beans are naturally rich in dietary fiber and numerous vitamins and minerals. They also supply a notable amount of plant based protein.
The next ingredient is turkey gizzard. Turkey gizzards are meaty organ meats which provide high quality protein. They are naturally low in fat and play an important role in the digestive system of turkeys and other birds. As with other organ meats, turkey gizzards are an excellent addition in the recipe.
Then we have cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.
Moving on, we have 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.
Moving on with this review, we have tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
The next ingredient in this review is calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is a naturally occurring mineral supplement. Although it's often used as a dietary calcium supplement, it can also be used as a preservative or color retainer.
Our next ingredient is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
choline chloride is the next ingredient in this recipe. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Next on the list is dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Bravo Homestyle Complete 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.
