Ingredient Review

Our review of Gentle Giants 90% Turkey Grain-Free Wet Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

The second ingredient is Turkey Broth. Turkey broth is the liquid that remains after turkey has been cooked. In pet food, turkey broth adds moisture, flavor, and aroma, along with some nutrients.

The third ingredient is Liver. Liver is a general name for a protein-rich organ meat from any animal. The liver in pet food can be a source of important minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and selenium, but depending on its source, can be of low quality.

The fourth ingredient is Dried Whole Eggs. Dried whole eggs are a combination of dried egg white and egg yolk. The dried whole eggs in pet food are a good source of healthy, easily digested protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is Chickpeas. Chickpeas are legumes. Also known as garbanzo beans, the chickpeas in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Gentle Giants 90% Turkey Grain-Free Wet Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
