Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nulo FreeStyle Small Breed Salmon & Red Lentils Recipe 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 turkey meal. Turkey meal is produced by cooking turkey using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of turkey and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

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

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

The fifth ingredient is red lentil. Red lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nulo FreeStyle Small Breed Salmon & Red Lentils Recipe 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 Nulo recipe.

Next we have sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.

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

Then we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid). Essentially fatty acids are crucially important for optimal health, chicken fat happens to be an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids.

The remaining ingredients in this Nulo FreeStyle 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.
