First 5 Ingredients:
- Ground yellow corn
- Meat and bone meal
- Soybean meal
- Beef tallow preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E)
- Corn gluten meal
Corn is source of nutrients and protein, but it is also contains relatively high amounts of carbohydrates and it is commonly found in dog food, since it is relatively cheap. Take caution some dogs may already be or will develop an allergy to corn.
Meat and bone meal is rendered from other animal parts that humans may not consider eating. There are pros and cons to meal. Its advantage is it provides lots of protein with the essential amino acids that a dog needs for a relatively lower cost and contains low moisture content relative to pure meat ingredients. However, it goes through an extensive rendering process to ensure it is safe to eat. Not much flavor is preserved and other nutrients are wiped out; it’s strictly good for a source of protein. Another concern is it doesn’t mention what animal it came from; it could be from sick or euthanize animal as just two possibilities among many others.
Soybean meal is the remains after grinding the soybean to extract the oil. It is a low cost source of protein with all essential amino acids for dogs, and it’s commonly found in animal feed.
Beef Tallow is derived from beef fat. This pure fat derivative is mainly Saturated fatty acids and Monounsaturated fats. There is a small percentage of good Polyunsaturated fatty acid too. Dogs are biologically geared to hand more fat than a human, but they have their own limits too.
Corn gluten meal is an inexpensive source of protein, and does boast protein content when used. However, the amino acids it contains are not well balanced for a dog. Thus, it is an inferior choice to meat or other sources for protein. Look out for this protein substitute. There are some dogs maybe allergic to corn, which applies to this corn by-product.
Other Ingredients to be Aware of
Animal digest is processed animal issue by applying heat, enzymes, and/or acids. The end product may contain protein, but it is not clear on what parts of the animal, condition of the animal, or what type of animal was used. It doesn’t sound great and we advise to avoid this ingredient if possible.
Food coloring is purely added for aesthetics. Despite being FDA approved, there is always risk they may do harm over time without much or any value in return. Food coloring is unnecessary and should be avoided. Example of food coloring in the ingredients is blue1, “food coloring”, yellow 5, red 40, etc..
Garlic oil is a debatable ingredient. You may know that garlic contains thiosulphate, which can cause hemolytic anemia, liver damage, and death for dogs. So why do they add garlic or garlic oil to dog food? It is because some debate the benefits of garlic are significant for dogs, and low dosages do pose any risk to their compromising their health.
