Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Castor & Pollux Organix Grain Free Organic Chicken & Potato Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is organic chicken. Although organic chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken 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 water sufficient for processing, which increases the food's moisture content.

The third ingredient is organic pea flour. Organic 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 organic potato. Organic potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fifth ingredient is organic carrot. Organic carrots are an excellent source dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The remaining ingredients in this Castor & Pollux Organix Grain Free 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.
