We'll begin this review of Castor & Pollux Natural Ultramix Adult Dog Food with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.
The second ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The third ingredient is turkey meal. Turkey meal is produced by cooking turkey using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of turkey and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The fourth ingredient is grain sorghum. Grain sorghum is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. This cereal grain also provides a modest amount of B vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, phosphorus, and manganese.
The fifth ingredient is ground whole oats. Ground whole oats provide a notable amount of dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals. Whats more, non-contaminated oats are gluten free; however, oats are typically processed and grown near ingredients which contain gluten and therefore contamination is not unusual. Always check the packaging to ensure the product is gluten free if your pet has allergies to gluten.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Castor & Pollux Natural Ultramix Adult Dog Food 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 Castor & Pollux recipe.
Next we have whole ground barley. Whole ground barley is a nutritious carbohydrate source. It's a great source of dietary fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
The next ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid). Essentially fatty acids are crucially important for optimal health, chicken fat happens to be an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids.
Then we have brown rice. Brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, brown rice is easy to digest.
The remaining ingredients in this Castor & Pollux Natural Ultramix 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.
