According to our data, this Evo recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult dogs. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.

We'll begin this review of Evo 95% Animal Protein Grain Free Beef Recipe In Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.
The second ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.
The third ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which increases the food's moisture content.
The fourth ingredient is beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is fish oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fish oil is defined by AAFCO as "the oil from rendering whole fish or cannery waste." It is typically rich in omega-3 fatty acids and therefore a good fat source. However, the specific fish used to obtain the oil is not specified and therefore we cannot make any specific claims.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evo 95% Animal Protein Grain Free Beef Recipe In Gravy 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 Evo recipe.
Next we have natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.
The next ingredient is guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.
Then we have tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
Moving on, we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
Moving on with this review, we have cassia gum. Cassia gum is made from the endosperm of a legume called senna obtusifolia. It's commonly used as a thickener and gelling agent in pet food.
The next ingredient in this review is xanthan gum, which is used as a thickening and suspending agent. It's usually produced by bacterial fermentation and does not provide any nutritional value.
The remaining ingredients in this Evo 95% Animal Protein 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 Evo 95% Animal Protein Grain Free Beef Recipe In Gravy is 5.0 out of 5.
