Review of Cesar Bistro
Grilled Chicken Primavera Flavor In Sauce

This product is manufactured by Mars Petcare Inc..

Unfortunately, our team has not been able to confirm that this product meets any AAFCO nutrition profiles. We rely on the companies website to provide this information. However, we were not able to find a nutritional adequacy statement on the company's website. We caution owners from feeding non-AAFCO approved products because these products may not contain all of the nutrients required by your dog.

Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Cesar Bistro Grilled Chicken Primavera Flavor In Sauce with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

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

The second ingredient is chicken. Although 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 third ingredient is liver. Liver is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous animal ingredients are typically very low quality and may contain almost any animal, including dogs and cats!

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

The fifth ingredient is semolina wheat enriched with niacin. Semolina wheat is made from durum wheat and is typically used to make pasta. Like other wheat ingredients, semolina wheat is regarded as an inexpensive low quality filler in pet food.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Cesar Bistro Grilled Chicken Primavera Flavor In Sauce 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 Cesar recipe.

Next we have ferrous sulfate, which is an iron supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Cesar Bistro 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product contains artificial colors. Although the FDA has approved these ingredients in pet food. They are unnecessary and unhealthy additions. Long term exposure can have serious consequences. See our article on artificial food dyes for more information.
