    Editor’s Taste Rating


    Surprisingly the taste of the chicken broth really comes through. The liver taste is not strong, and there are not displeasing flavors that can be detected. Chewing through the processed pieces, I did notice a little bit of hard particles. Nevertheless, the taste is very good.

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

    Brown rice is good source of fiber and contains more nutrients than white rice.  It does contain a high amount of carbohydrates.

    Rice bran is the outer layer of whole grain brown rice; it surrounds the endosperm. This part of the rice is rich in dietary fiber and other carbohydrates.

    Peas are a good source of fiber and protein, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates.

    Caramel color is not necessary as its only purpose is for aesthetics. The downside is it contains advanced gycation end products, which can result in premature aging.
