Review of Earthborn Holistic EarthBites
Chicken Meal Recipe

Ingredient Review

The first 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 second 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 third ingredient is cane molasses. Cane molasses is a less refined form of sugar, made from sugar cane. It's naturally rich in various minerals including magnesium, manganese, iron, calcium, and potassium.

Cane molasses is however considered a controversial ingredient because it can raise a dogs blood sugar level, as it can with humans.

The fourth ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.

The fifth ingredient is vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is a clear, orderless liquid derived from plant oils. It is often used to increase the product's moisture and/or improve palatability.

Controversial Ingredients

Canola oil is a plant-derived oil from the seeds of canola plants. Although fat is an essential component of any diet, canola oil is controversial in pet food. Proponents claim that canola oil provides a better fat profile in comparison to other plant based oils. However, opponents claim that canola oil is typically produced with genetically modified rapeseed and that rapeseed oil has multiple adverse health affects.
