Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Evanger's Hand Packed Roasted Whole Chicken Drummets with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken drumette. Chicken drumettes are the fleshy part of chicken wings which go from the shoulder blade to the elbow joint.

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

The third ingredient is carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is tomato paste. Tomato paste is produced by cooking tomatoes for several hours. The seeds and skins of the tomatoes are removed in the process. Nutritionally, it's rich in dietary fiber, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evanger's Hand Packed Roasted Whole Chicken Drummets 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 Evanger's recipe.

Next we have vitamin E supplement. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin required by dogs.

The next ingredient is niacin supplement. Niacin is 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.

Then we have l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate, which is a feed-grade vitamin C supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Evanger's Hand Packed 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 does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Evanger's Hand Packed Roasted Whole Chicken Drummets is 3.0 out of 5.
