We'll begin this review of Evanger's Super Premium Dry Food Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first 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 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 brown rice. Brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, brown rice is easy to digest.
The fourth ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Chicken fat is a relatively good source of linoleic acid, which is an important essential fatty acid.
The fifth ingredient is oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evanger's Super Premium Dry Food Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe 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 dried egg. Dried eggs consist of shell-free eggs 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.
The next ingredient is carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
Then we have celery. Although celery contains roughly 95% moisture, it's still an excellent source of dietary fiber. Celery also provides a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Evanger's Super Premium Dry Food 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.
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 Super Premium Dry Food Chicken and Brown Rice Recipe is 4.0 out of 5.
