We'll begin this review of Supreme Source Super-Premium Dog Food Pork, Peas and Wild Boar Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is pork. Although pork is an excellent protein source, raw pork contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of pork 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 meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The third ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
The fourth ingredient is lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
The fifth ingredient is pea protein. Pea protein is produced by removing the starchy parts of peas. Pea protein is considered controversial because it provides a substantial plant based protein boost. This boost is undesirable because plant based protein is typically lower in biological value when compared to meat based proteins.
The remaining ingredients in this Supreme Source Super-Premium Dog Food 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.
In summary, we recognize that this product contains anonymous meat ingredients. These are not necessarily always negative; however, they are typically low quality and inexpensive additions. If the particular anonymous meat ingredient is controversial or low quality, it should have been discussed earlier in this review. Otherwise, it is safe to assume the anonymous meat ingredient is an acceptable addition.
The official PawDiet rating for Supreme Source Super-Premium Dog Food Pork, Peas and Wild Boar Recipe is 3.0 out of 5.
