Instinct Raw Boost Minis Review
Review of Instinct Raw Boost Minis
The first ingredient is duck (ground with bone). Although duck is an excellent animal based protein source, raw duck contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of duck 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground duck bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.
The second ingredient is turkey. Turkey is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, turkey contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of turkey is dramatically reduced after cooking.
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 turkey heart. Turkey hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Turkey hearts also supply a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is pumpkin seed. Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Pumpkin seeds also provide a notable amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Next we have carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.
The next ingredient is apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Then we have butternut squash. Butternut squash is a winter squash, which means the squash is harvested when mature. It's an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and various dietary minerals.
Moving on, we have ground flaxseed. Ground 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.
Moving on with this review, we have 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.
