Ingredient Review

Our review of Spot Farms Turkey Grain-Free Human Grade Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Dehydrated Turkey. Dehydrated turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat, that has been dried before addition to a recipe. In pet food, dehydrated turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins. Some pet treats contain dehydrated turkey as well.

The second ingredient is Dried Potatoes. Dried potatoes are dehydrated potato tubers. Only the edible portion of the potato plant is used in production. In pet food, dried potatoes serve as a source of carbohydrates for energy, along with small amounts of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes can also enhance the texture of your companion’s food.

The third ingredient is Flax Seed. Flax seed comes from the flax plant, which is cultivated for both food and fiber. In pet food, flax seed serves as a source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, which provide a number of benefits and contribute to healthy skin and a shiny coat.

The fourth ingredient is Dried Apples. Dried apples are the dehydrated fruit from any variety of apple, usually minus seeds and sometimes without skin. In pet food, dried apples serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants and vitamins including vitamins A and C.

The fifth ingredient is Dried Carrots. Dried carrots are carrot pieces that have been dehydrated. In pet food, dried carrots can add color and flavor, along with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and fiber.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Spot Farms Turkey Grain-Free Human Grade Dehydrated 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.
