Ingredient Review

Our review of MeatMe Organic Beef Recipe Frozen Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Organic Beef. Organic beef is meat from any cattle breed, from animals that have been raised organically and fed organic food. In pet food, organic beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal. It provides protein, amino acids, and a number of important vitamins and minerals.

The second ingredient is Organic Beef Heart. Organic Beef Heart is sourced from grass-fed beef heart and it’s rich in protein, iron, zinc, folate, and vitamins B. Freeze-dried Organic Beef Heart supports healthy digestion, promotes healthy teeth and gums, and promotes healthy skin and coat.

The third ingredient is Organic Beef Kidney. Organic beef kidney is kidney tissue from any breed of cattle, that has been raised organically and fed organic food. This may not sound good to most people but in pet food, organic beef kidney can be a great source of quality protein, vitamins, and minerals including iron.

The fourth ingredient is Dicalcium Phosphate. In pet food, dicalcium phosphate serves as a supplemental source of calcium and phosphate, two minerals that are essential for your pet’s well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Inulin. Inulin is a type of dietary fiber, often sourced from the chicory plant. In pet food, inulin can serve as a flavoring agent with a somewhat sweet taste. In addition, it doubles as a prebiotic to aid in healthy digestive function.

When we analyzed the ingredients in MeatMe Organic Beef Recipe Frozen 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.
