Ingredient Review

Our review of Zeal Canada Gently Turkey Recipe Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is Turkey Heart. Turkey heart is meat from the muscles that form a turkey’s heart. In pet food, turkey heart can be a good source of protein, iron, and other important nutrients.

The third ingredient is Turkey Liver. Turkey liver is a general term that can refer to fresh, frozen, cooked, or freeze dried liver from a turkey of any breed. The turkey liver in pet food is more than just a source of protein – it’s also a good source of vitamin A, copper, niacin, zinc, and other essential nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Bamboo Fiber. Bamboo fiber is an insoluble fiber sourced from bamboo shoots. This dietary fiber is odor-free, natural in taste, and has no fats or calories. It has a high fiber content making it a good source of dietary fiber for lowering blood cholesterol in your pet

The fifth ingredient is Sunflower Lecithin. Sunflower lecithin is a fatty substance that is extracted from sunflower seeds. In pet food, sunflower lecithin serves as an emulsifier and texturizer, plus it’s a good source of essential fatty acids to help your companion stay healthy.

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 Zeal Canada Gently Turkey Recipe Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food.
