Ingredient Review

Our review of Ziwi Peak Beef Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The second ingredient is Beef Liver. Beef liver is organ meat from any cattle breed. The beef liver in pet food is a source of protein, iron, and many other essential nutrients.

The third ingredient is Beef Kidney. Beef kidney is kidney tissue from any breed of cattle. This may not sound good to us but in pet food, beef kidney can be a great source of quality protein, vitamins, and minerals including iron.

The fourth ingredient is Beef Heart. Beef heart is muscle tissue from the heart of any cattle species. In pet food, beef heart serves as an excellent source of protein, iron, zinc, B vitamins, and many trace minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Beef Tripe. Beef tripe is lining from a cow’s stomach. In pet food, beef tripe can serve as a source of protein, vitamins, and minerals including vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium.

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 Ziwi Peak Beef Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food.
