Ingredient Review

Our review of Purina Beneful Chopped Blends with Turkey begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second 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 third ingredient is Wheat Gluten. Wheat gluten is a good source of digestible protein. In pet food, wheat gluten is used as a binding agent and texturizer as well as a protein source.

The fourth ingredient is Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are added to pet food as an easy-to-digest source of grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. They contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fifth 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.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Purina Beneful Chopped Blends with Turkey, 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.
