Ingredient Review

Our review of Moist & Meaty High Protein With Real Chicken & Beef Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Soy Flour. Soy flour is made with ground soybeans and is a source of inexpensive plant-based protein. The soy flour in pet food is often used as a texturizer or bulking agent to increase protein content without adding more meat to the recipe.

The second ingredient is Soy Grits. Soy grits are a textured form of soy protein, extracted from soybeans. In pet food, soy grits are used as a source of protein and gluten-free carbohydrates; they’re also used to improve texture.

The third ingredient is Beef By-Product. Beef by-product is a term that refers to remnants from the beef butchering process – essentially, everything that’s left after standard cuts of meat have been removed. Beef by-product in pet food typically includes organ meats such as liver, kidney, and heart, and other parts such as tripe, tongue, fat, skin, and bones.

The fourth ingredient is High Fructose Corn Syrup. Also known as HFCS, high fructose corn syrup is a form of sugar that comes from corn, usually genetically modified varieties. While it isn’t an ingredient that’s commonly added to pet food, high fructose corn syrup is best avoided as it offers no benefits to your companion.

The fifth ingredient is Water. Water is added to pet food as a blending agent, or as a thinning agent. It is typically found in wet or moist foods rather than in dry kibble.

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 Moist & Meaty High Protein With Real Chicken & Beef Dry Dog Food.

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.
