We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Land Limited Ingredient Diet - Lamb Formula 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 lamb broth. Lamb broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, lamb broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is vegetable broth. As with other broths, vegetable broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
The fourth ingredient is lamb liver. Lamb liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, lamb liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Land Limited Ingredient Diet - Lamb Formula 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 Canidae recipe.
Next we have salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a dog diet.
The next ingredient is agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
Then 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.
Moving on, we have 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.
Moving on with this review, we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The next ingredient in this review 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.
Our next ingredient is choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
vitamin E supplement is the next ingredient in this recipe. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin required by dogs.
The remaining ingredients in this Canidae Grain Free Pure Land 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.
