Ingredient Review

Our review of Purina Bella Porterhouse Steak Flavor in Savory Juices Small Breed Wet Dog Food Trays begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Meat By-Products. The meat by-products in pet food may be organs such as liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and more, as well as meat left over from butchering. While meat by-products include offal that isn’t meant for human consumption, it may not contain hooves, horns, teeth, or animal hides.

The second ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The third 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.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Carrageenan. Carrageenan is a natural extract that is derived from seaweed. In pet food, carrageenan is used as a stabilizer, thickening agent, emulsifier, and texturizer.

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 Purina Bella Porterhouse Steak Flavor in Savory Juices Small Breed Wet Dog Food Trays.
