Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Petcurean Go! Daily Defence Salmon Pate Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is salmon. Although salmon is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw salmon contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of salmon 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 liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The third ingredient is brown rice. 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 fourth ingredient is salmon broth. Salmon broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, salmon broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The fifth ingredient is wild rice. Wild rice is a gluten-free grain which supplies protein, dietary fiber, certain minerals, and B vitamins.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Petcurean Go! Daily Defence Salmon Pate 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 Petcurean recipe.

Next we have potato. Potatoes provide a notable amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In addition, potatoes are gluten free and therefore commonly found in grain free and gluten free products.

The next ingredient is carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

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 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.

Moving on with this review, we have sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.

The next ingredient in this review is dried egg whites. Dried egg whites consist of shell-free egg whites, which are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.

Our next ingredient is red pepper. Red peppers are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

apple is the next ingredient in this recipe. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.

Next on the list is tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.

The next ingredient in this recipe 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 potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

The next ingredient is salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and dogs. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.

Then we have dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.

The remaining ingredients in this Petcurean Go! Daily Defence 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
