Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Recipe With Real Chicken For Senior Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

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

The fourth ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca 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 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Recipe With Real Chicken For Senior Dogs 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 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 next ingredient is egg. Eggs 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.

Then we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid). Chicken fat is a relatively good source of linoleic acid, which is an important essential fatty acid.

The remaining ingredients in this Instinct Raw Boost 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.

The official PawDiet rating for Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Recipe With Real Chicken For Senior Dogs is 3.5 out of 5.
