We'll begin this review of Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw Surf & Turf Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef 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 beef heart. Beef hearts are full of high quality protein and fat. Beef hearts also provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.
The third ingredient is wild salmon. Wild salmon is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, salmon contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of salmon is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is beef kidney. Beef kidney is an excellent protein source which also provides a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is beef liver. Organ meats like beef 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 Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw Surf & Turf 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 ground beef bone. Ground beef bones are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.
The next ingredient is carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.
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.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Open Farm Freeze Dried Raw Surf & Turf Recipe is 5.0 out of 5.
