NutriSource Grain Free Dog Food Prairie Select is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
We'll begin this review of NutriSource Grain Free Dog Food Prairie Select with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is quail. Quail is a medium size game bird and an excellent novel protein source. However, raw quail contains a significant amount of moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of quail 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 duck. Duck is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, duck contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of duck is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The third ingredient is green lentil. Green lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
The fourth ingredient is duck meal. Duck meal is produced by cooking duck using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of duck and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The fifth 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in NutriSource Grain Free Dog Food Prairie Select 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 NutriSource recipe.
Next we have garbanzo bean. Garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
The next ingredient is pea flour. Pea flour is made from roasted peas which have been processed into a powder. It's naturally rich in protein and dietary fiber.
The remaining ingredients in this NutriSource Grain Free Dog Food 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 NutriSource Grain Free Dog Food Prairie Select is 5.0 out of 5.
