Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nutro Kitchen Classics Premium Loaf Family Dinner With Turkey, Rice & Vegetables For Adult Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is turkey broth. Turkey broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, turkey broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The second ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 third ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

The fourth ingredient is beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is chicken liver. Organ meats like chicken liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Kitchen Classics Premium Loaf Family Dinner With Turkey, Rice & Vegetables For Adult Dogs 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 Nutro recipe.

Next we have rice bran. Rice grains can be divided into three components: bran, germ, and endosperm. The bran is the outer layer of the grain. The bran is an excellent fiber source, it also provide all three macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) and various vitamins and minerals.

The next ingredient is ground rice. Ground rice is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are intact, rice can provide a notable amount of fiber and nutrition. However, because the type of rice ("brown" or "white") is not specified, we cannot make this determination.

Then we have pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.

Moving on, 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.

Moving on with this review, we have dried potato. Dried potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten-free carbohydrate source. In addition to carbohydrates, dried potatoes also supply protein and various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Kitchen Classics Premium Loaf 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.
