Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is organic turkey. Although organic 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 water sufficient for processing, which adds necessary moisture to the food.

The third ingredient is organic chicken. Organic chicken is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, chicken contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced after cooking.

The fourth 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 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Castor & Pollux Organix Grain Free Organic Turkey, Carrot & Potato Recipe 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 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 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 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.
