Review of Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free Freeze-Dried
Raw Meal Or Mixer Grass-Fed Beef Recipe

Ingredient Review

The first ingredient is beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef 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 beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The third ingredient is ground beef bone. Ground beef bones are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

The fourth ingredient is beef broth. Beef broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, beef broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The fifth ingredient is beef fat. Fat is an important part of your dogs diet, beef fat in particular is a good source of essential fatty acids.

Next we have organic dried pea. Organic dried peas are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

The next ingredient is organic dried potato. Organic dried potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten-free carbohydrate source. In addition to carbohydrates, dried potatoes also supply protein and various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Then we have gelatin. Gelatin is produced from animal by-products and contains 98% to 99% protein by dry weight. However, gelatin protein is incomplete and lacks many essential amino acids.
