Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Evo Grain Free Dry Dog Food Red Meat Formula 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 pork meal. Pork meal is produced by cooking pork using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of pork and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

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

The fourth ingredient is tapioca starch. Tapioca starch 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 pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evo Grain Free Dry Dog Food Red Meat Formula 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 sunflower oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.

The next ingredient is beef fat. Fat is an important part of your dogs diet, beef fat in particular is a good source of essential fatty acids.

Then we have bison. Bison is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, bison contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of bison is dramatically reduced after cooking.

Moving on, we have lamb. Lamb is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, lamb contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of lamb is dramatically reduced after cooking.

Moving on with this review, we have venison. Although venison is an excellent protein source, raw venison contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of venison 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 next ingredient in this review is natural flavor. Natural flavoring does not contribute any nutritional value.

The remaining ingredients in this Evo Grain Free Dry Dog 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
