We'll begin this review of Nulo MedalSeries Lamb & Lentils Recipe (Canned) with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is lamb. Although lamb is an excellent protein source, raw lamb contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of lamb 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. 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 lamb broth. Lamb broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, lamb broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The fifth ingredient is turkey broth. As with other broths, turkey broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nulo MedalSeries Lamb & Lentils Recipe (Canned) 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 salmon. Salmon is another outstanding protein and omega-3 fatty acids source. Salmon also contains all of the necessary essential amino acids required by dogs.
The next ingredient is lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
Then 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.
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 guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.
The next ingredient in this review is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
Our next ingredient is 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.
choline chloride is the next ingredient in this recipe. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Next on the list is agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
The next ingredient in this recipe is natural flavor, which is likely included to improve palatability.
The remaining ingredients in this Nulo MedalSeries 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.
