Our review of Dr. Tim's Weight Management Metabolite Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.
The second ingredient is Dried White Potatoes. Dried white potatoes are dehydrated white potato tubers. Only the edible portion of the potato plant is used in production. In pet food, dried white potatoes serve as a source of carbohydrates for energy, along with small amounts of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes can also enhance the texture of your companion’s food.
The third ingredient is Tapioca. Tapioca is a type of starch that comes from the cassava root. It is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates. In pet food, tapioca is often added to grain-free and gluten-free recipes.
The fourth ingredient is Dried Field Peas. Also known as dehydrated cowpeas, dried field peas are nutritious legumes that are often grown as cover crops. In pet food, dried field peas can provide protein, carbohydrates, and fiber, along with iron and many other important nutrients.
The fifth ingredient is Powdered Cellulose. In pet food, powdered cellulose serves as a filler and a source of dietary fiber. Powdered cellulose can come from any plant source including agricultural byproducts. It is often encountered in lower calorie pet foods for weight loss.
After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Dr. Tim's Weight Management Metabolite Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food.
