Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Purina One SmartBlend Lamb & Long Grain Rice Entree (Classic Ground) with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is lamb broth. Lamb broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, lamb broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The second ingredient is chicken broth. As with other broths, chicken broth is a source of flavor and moisture.

The third ingredient is lamb. Although lamb is an excellent protein source, raw lamb contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of lamb 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 fourth ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

The fifth ingredient is liver. Liver is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous animal ingredients are typically very low quality and may contain almost any animal, including dogs and cats!

The remaining ingredients in this Purina One SmartBlend 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.

The official PawDiet rating for Purina One SmartBlend Lamb & Long Grain Rice Entree (Classic Ground) is 3.0 out of 5.
