Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets Chicken Formula For Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken (ground with bone). Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken 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 chicken bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.

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 organic carrot. Organic carrots are an excellent source dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The fourth ingredient is organic squash. Organic squash is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is organic kale. Organic kale is a nutritionally dense dark green vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Kale also contains sulforaphane, a compound believed to have anti-cancer properties.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets Chicken Formula For 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 Primal recipe.

Next we have organic apple. Organic apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.

The remaining ingredients in this Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets 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.
