Review Summary:

The biggest drawback in Cesar is the top ingredients, where after “water” it starts off with by-product grade meats, then to compound to this drawback they use generic sources such as ‘Meat by products” and "Animal Liver". Generic sources do not instill confidence on where the source may have come from. They do have some better ingredients, but they are further down the list. The flavor is misleading, where it does not taste like roasted chicken. Not too impressed.

Cons

  • Generic animal type ingredient source is first ingredient after water
  • Does not taste like roasted chicken
  • Contains unnecessary food coloring
  • OvenRoastedChicken

    Editor’s Taste Rating

     6.0/10

    Not great tasting. To best describe it, it is like a  bad liver pate and not roasted chicken, but nevertheless it does have some kind of liver flavor shining through.  The worse part is a repulsive aftertaste that lingers for awhile.

    Water: Not much to say about this ingredient, except to note the moisture level of this product to beware how much water/moisture you are buying.

    Beef by-products are non- rendered parts from parts that are not considered fit for human consumption.  Typical parts may include spleen, lungs, brains, blood, underdeveloped eggs, intestine, etc..

    Animal Liver is a good straight meat, but it the word “Animal” is a generic term. This may allow for higher odds of a bad source such as a sick, euthanized, or road kill, which are just a few examples among many other possibilities.  Keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, this ingredient factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

    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.

    Xanthan gum is commonly used in food as a thickening agent for both human and animal foods. It may be derived from a variety of source products that are themselves common allergens, such as corn, wheat, dairy, or soy. Thus, if you know your dog is has certain allergies, then it is important to beware that xanthan gum maybe potential source too.
