Review of Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Dry
Review of Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Dry
Five dry dog foods are listed by the Earthborn Holistic product line. Due to its higher quality formula which is unique, here we will review Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural with its special report. It is claimed by Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural that the meet the nutrient AAFCO profiles for all life stages. Turkey meal is the first ingredient this dog food contains. Considered a meat concentrate, turkey meal contains almost 300% more protein than fresh turkey contains.
Chicken meal is the second ingredient listed; this is another meat concentrate that is protein-rich. Potato is the third ingredient. Potatoes are considered to be a digestible source of carbohydrates that are gluten-free. However, perhaps except their caloric content, potatoes only provide modest nutritional value to dogs.
Chicken fat is the fourth ingredient. You get chicken fat from rendering chicken; this process is similar to that of making soup and skinning that fat itself off of the liquid’s surface. Chicken fat contains high amounts of linolenic acid which are an omega-6 fatty acid crucial for life. Although it may not sound that appetizing, chicken fat is considered to be a quality ingredient.
Whitefish meal is the fifth ingredient; this is another meat concentrate which is high in protein. Typically fish meal is obtained from the ground tissue of whole fish and fish cuttings taken from commercial fish operations that are undecomposed, cleaned and dried. Dried egg product is the sixth ingredient; these are shell-free eggs that come in a dehydrated form. The quality can significantly vary. You can obtain egg product that is lower grade quality may even come from commercial hatcheries, specifically from eggs which have not hatched. Regardless, it is easy to digest eggs, and they have a biological value that is exceptionally high.
Tomato pomace is the seventh ingredient, and it is a part which is quite controversial, a by-product that remains after tomatoes have been processed into soup, juice, and ketchup. Due to its high nutrient and fiber content, many people praise tomato pomace, although others scorn it and view it and a pet food filler that is inexpensive. That being said, the content of tomato pomace is not enough to make a difference here.
Peas are the eighth ingredient include and are a high-quality source of healthy carbohydrates. And as with many legumes, they are rich in all natural fibers. That being said, there is a 25% content of protein in peas, and when judging the meat content found in this dog food, that is a factor that must be taken into consideration.
Blueberries are the ninth ingredient and are an excellent source of dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins. From here the list continues and includes quite a few other items. Realistically speaking. However, ingredients found this low down on the list except for nutritional supplements, will not affect this product’s overall rating.
There are however two notable exceptions
What we will first comment on is the fact that dried fermentation products are included in this recipe. Typically fermentation products are added as a way of providing enzymes which assist with animal digestion. And lastly, chelated minerals are included in this food, minerals which have been attached chemically to the protein making them much easier to absorb. Usually, the chelated mineral is found in dog foods of higher quality.
Only judging by its ingredients, Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural seems to be a dry product that is above-average. However, the whole story cannot be told by ingredient quality alone. The product’s meat content must still be estimated before providing a final rating.
The dry matter protein reading which is 42% is displayed on the dashboard, the fat level is 22%, and the carbohydrates are estimated around 28%. The fat to protein ratio is estimated around 53%. The protein and fat amounts are above average, and the carbs are below average when compared to your typical ordinary dry dog food.
Eben when the protein-boosting effects of the peas are taken into consideration, this profile seems to be one of a kibble which contains amounts of meat that are significant. Those who are looking to provide their dogs with their natural ancestral flies, this noble goal is at least being approached by Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural
So What is the Bottom Line?
A meat-based dry dog food, Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural sold at Dawgs N Whiskers in Sandy Utah, uses significant amounts of chicken and turkey meals as the primary source of animal protein, this is what earns this recipe five stars, and we enthusiastically recommend it. Please keep in mind that some recipes are awarded a lower or higher rating based upon the total estimate of their complete meat content and if appropriate, their ratios of fat-to-protein.
