We'll begin this review of Fromm Gold Salmon & Chicken Pate with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is salmon. Although salmon is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw salmon contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of salmon 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 chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The fourth ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Fromm Gold Salmon & Chicken Pate 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 Fromm recipe.
Next we have carrot. Carrots are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals.
The next ingredient is flaxseed. Flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.
Then we have pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.
Moving on, we have 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.
Moving on with this review, we have salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and dogs. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
The next ingredient in this review is potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
Our next ingredient is dicalcium phosphate. Dicalcium phosphate (misnomer for dibasic calcium phosphate) is commonly used in pet food and treats as a dietary calcium supplement. It can also be found in breakfast cereals, enriched flour, noodle products, pharmaceutical tablets, and toothpastes.
The remaining ingredients in this Fromm Gold 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 Fromm Gold Salmon & Chicken Pate is 5.0 out of 5.
