Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Cesar Home Delights Hearty Chicken, Noodle and Vegetables Dinner In Sauce with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which increases the food's moisture content.

The second ingredient is chicken. Chicken is the most common meat ingredient used in dog food. It provides high-quality protein and fat. However, more than 60% of chicken is water.

The third ingredient is chicken liver. Organ meats like chicken liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.

The fourth ingredient is wheat. Wheat is regarded as an inexpensive and low-quality filler in pet food. However, wheat does provide plant-based protein and makes pet food more affordable for consumers. It's important to note that plant based protein does not provide the same amino acid profile as meat based protein.

The fifth ingredient is egg whites. Egg whites consist of shell-free egg whites, which are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Cesar Home Delights Hearty Chicken, Noodle and Vegetables Dinner 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 niacin, also known as vitamin B3. It's an essential vitamin that is critical for the metabolism of nutrients and the well-being of the central nervous and GI systems.

The next ingredient is ferrous sulfate, which is an iron supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Cesar Home Delights 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product contains artificial colors and anonymous meat ingredients.

Although the FDA has approved the artificial colors used in this product, they are unnecessary and unhealthy additions. Long term exposure can have serious consequences. See our article on artificial food dyes for more information.

In regards to the anonymous meat ingredients, These are not necessarily always negative; however, they are typically low quality and inexpensive additions. If the particular anonymous meat ingredient is controversial or low quality, it should have been discussed earlier in this review. Otherwise, it is safe to assume the anonymous meat ingredient is an acceptable addition.

The official PawDiet rating for Cesar Home Delights Hearty Chicken, Noodle and Vegetables Dinner In Sauce is 2.0 out of 5.
