We'll begin this review of Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 turkey broth. Turkey broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, turkey broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
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 montmorillonite clay. Montmorillonite clay is a naturally occurring group of minerals which are believed to provide resistance to various environmental toxins. In addition, montmorillonite clay is often used as an anti-caking agent in pet food.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey 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 Instinct recipe.
Next we have flaxseed oil, which provides a healthy dose of essential fatty acids.
The next ingredient is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet 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 Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Formula is 4.0 out of 5.
