We'll begin this review of Nutro Wild Frontier Rolling Meadows Recipe For Adult Dogs 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 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 third ingredient is chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
The fourth ingredient is split pea. Split peas are a good source of dietary fiber and minerals. They also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
The fifth 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Wild Frontier Rolling Meadows Recipe 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 chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Chicken fat provides a healthy dose of linolic acid, which is an important omega-6 fatty acid.
The next ingredient is 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.
Then we have dehydrated alfalfa meal. Dehydrated alfalfa meal is produced from the alfalfa flowering plant. it's rich in plant based protein, dietary fiber, and various vitamins and minerals.
Moving on, we have potato protein. Potato protein is produced by extracting the starch of potatoes. This process results in a high protein and low ash ingredient called potato protein.
Moving on with this review, we have 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.
The next ingredient in this review is natural flavor. Unlike artificial flavoring, natural flavoring is produced using plants and/or animal parts.
Our next ingredient is flaxseed. 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.
choline chloride is the next ingredient in this recipe. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Wild Frontier 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.
