Review of Sojos Complete
Turkey & Salmon Recipe For Puppies
This product is manufactured by Sojourner Farms, LLC.
According to our data, this Sojos recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for growing puppies. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Sojos Complete Turkey & Salmon Recipe For Puppies is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growing puppies.
We'll begin this review of Sojos Complete Turkey & Salmon Recipe For Puppies with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 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 third ingredient is whole egg. Whole eggs 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.
The fourth ingredient is 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.
The fifth ingredient is carrot, which are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Sojos Complete Turkey & Salmon Recipe For Puppies 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 Sojos recipe.
Next we have apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The next ingredient is coconut. Coconuts are an excellent source of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) which are easier to digest and believed to promote skin and coat health.
Then we have salmon. 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.
Moving on, we have cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.
Moving on with this review, we have 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 review is celery. Although celery contains roughly 95% moisture, it's still an excellent source of dietary fiber. Celery also provides a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Sojos Complete recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.
Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a substantial amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. This property is typically found in lower quality products.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Sojos Complete Turkey & Salmon Recipe For Puppies is 3.0 out of 5.
