Review of Nutro Chewy Treats
With Real Apples
The first ingredient is whole brown rice. Whole brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, brown rice is easy to digest.
The second ingredient is oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.
The third ingredient is dried apple. Dried apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is sunflower oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.
Next we have natural flavor. Natural flavor enhances the flavor of the product. The difference between natural and artificial flavoring is that natural flavoring starts from a plant or animal whereas artificial flavoring is entirely man-made.
The next ingredient is molasses. Molasses is a syrup made from raw sugar. Although molasses is naturally rich in minerals, it can raise blood sugar levels and therefore should not be used in large quantities.
