Review of Nature's Variety Prairie All Natural Oven-Baked Biscuits
With Bacon & Apples
The first ingredient is oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.
The second ingredient is barley. Barley is a nutritious carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and various minerals. Unlike pearled barley, regular barley contains the entire grain.
The third ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.
The fourth ingredient is bacon. Bacon is produced by curing the fatty meat from the belly of a pig. It's likely used in this recipe to enhance the food's flavor; however, bacon is typically not a desirable addition in dog food.
The fifth ingredient is apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Next we have turkey meal. Turkey meal is produced by cooking turkey using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of turkey and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The next ingredient is canola oil. Canola oil is a plant-derived oil from the seeds of canola plants. Although fat is an essential component of any diet, canola oil is controversial in pet food. Proponents claim that canola oil provides a better fat profile in comparison to other plant based oils. However, opponents claim that canola oil is typically produced with genetically modified rapeseed and that rapeseed oil has multiple adverse health affects.
Then we have montmorillonite clay. Montmorillonite clay is a naturally occurring group of minerals which are believed to provide resistance to various environmental toxins. In addition, montmorillonite clay is often used as an anti-caking agent in pet food.
Moving on, we have ground flaxseed. Ground 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 natural flavor. Natural flavor enhances the flavor of the product. The difference between natural and artificial flavoring is that natural flavoring starts from a plant or animal whereas artificial flavoring is entirely man-made.
