Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw Homestead Turkey Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is turkey (ground with bone). 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground turkey bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

The second 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 third ingredient is turkey neck. In addition to the muscle meat, turkey necks include bones which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

The fourth ingredient is turkey gizzard. Turkey gizzards are meaty organ meats which provide high quality protein. They are naturally low in fat and play an important role in the digestive system of turkeys and other birds. As with other organ meats, turkey gizzards are an excellent addition in the recipe.

The fifth ingredient is carrot. Carrots are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw Homestead Turkey Recipe 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 Open Farm recipe.

Next we have blueberry. Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.

The remaining ingredients in this Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw 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.
