Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Castor & Pollux Organix 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 of course provides moisture.

The third ingredient is organic brown rice. Organic 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 fourth 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 fifth 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 remaining ingredients in this Castor & Pollux Organix 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.
