Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of California Natural Grain Free Limited Ingredient Diet Lamb Meal Recipe For Adult Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is lamb meal. Lamb meal is produced by cooking lamb using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of lamb and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The second ingredient is pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.

The third ingredient is green lentil. Green lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.

The fourth ingredient is sunflower oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.

The fifth ingredient is pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in California Natural Grain Free Limited Ingredient Diet Lamb Meal Recipe For Adult Dogs 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 California Natural recipe.

Next we have natural flavor. The sole purpose of natural flavor is to improve palatability.

The next ingredient is 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.

Then we have taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.

The remaining ingredients in this California Natural Grain Free Limited Ingredient Diet recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. This property is typically found in lower quality products.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for California Natural Grain Free Limited Ingredient Diet Lamb Meal Recipe For Adult Dogs is 3.0 out of 5.
