It’s great to see the word Organic, but with Yarrah Organic does it mean a quality product or does it mean an effective use of marketing?
Let’s take a look at the Organic Chicken formula…
The product is 19.9% organic dried chicken, which is a good start, but what’s the remainder of the food? The answer is grains…
The bulk of the food comprises of oats, corn, wheat, and soy. That’s a lot of grains, with wheat and soy being common allergens. The digestive tract of a canine is shorter than ours, which doesn’t allow sufficient time to digest grains as efficiently as they digest meat, so it’s far from an optimum diet. That said, oats are certainly one of the better selections, but they could do away with the others. Corn is used to bulk up protein.
It’s nice to see organic chicken fat as a better inclusion than ambiguous animal fats. Herring offers a good source of omega fats for joint health, wellbeing, and a shiny coat.
The protein percentage of 26% is respectable, but this is comprised of not only chicken, but largely the corn, peas, and liver in the food. At least with the protein percentage being slightly above average it means less carbs in the food. That’s a small plus, but the food is mediocre.
