Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Dogswell Grain Free Chicken Recipe For Puppies with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The second ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The third ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

The fifth ingredient is menhaden meal. Menhaden meal is produced by cooking menhaden using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of menhaden and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Dogswell Grain Free Chicken Recipe For Puppies 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 Dogswell recipe.

Next we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), which provides a healthy dose of omega-6 fatty acids.

The next ingredient is pea starch. Pea starch is a gluten free carbohydrate derived from peas. Typically, pea starch is used as a binder in kibble.

Then we have pea protein. Pea protein is produced by removing the starchy parts of peas. Pea protein is considered controversial because it provides a substantial plant based protein boost. This boost is undesirable because plant based protein is typically lower in biological value when compared to meat based proteins.

Moving on, we have natural flavor. Although natural flavor does not provide any nutritional value, it does improve palatability.

Moving on with this review, we have dried tomato pomace. Dried tomato pomace is a by-product of tomato manufacturing. It's considered a controversial ingredient because many people believe it is an inexpensive low quality filler. However, tomato pomace provides a notable amount of dietary fiber, B vitamins, Lycopene, and vitamin A. Although it is a very inexpensive ingredient, it is not nutritionally empty.

The next ingredient in this review is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a dog diet.

The remaining ingredients in this Dogswell 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.
