First 5 Ingredients:
- Chicken Broth
- Dried Egg Product
- Pea Protein
- Ground Tapioca
Chicken broth is a tastier alternative to water
Chicken is a good start and source of protein with all the essential amino acids for dogs, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.
Dried Egg product are eggs that are removed from the shell, then processed and pasteurized at a factory. Its composition does not necessary contain both the yolk and egg white from each egg. The manufacture may blend them at any ratio and may include non-egg products for processing purposes.
Pea protein is from processed peas with most of the starch removed. It is a good source of protein, with almost no carbohydrates. Also, there isn’t any dietary fiber either.
Ground Tapioca, Tapioca, or Tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour) is high in carbohydrates and calories. It is good for energy, but of course too much carbs will go towards storage as fat. Beyond this, it does not offer much nutrients, fiber, or protein. This ingredient is a poor choice for average dog’s diet.
Other Ingredients to be Aware of
Sweet potatoes contains an abundant amount of vitamin A and beta–carotene, which are important for the eyes / vision. It is also a good source of fiber and be aware that it does offer carbohydrates, since it is a starchy food type.
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.
