1) PACKAGING 10/10
Emerald Gold Premium Adult Dog Food is packed into a distinct, brightly coloured bag with the health benefits of the product listed on the front of the bag for easy reference. The bull terrier silhouette on the front of the bag is a nice touch and makes the product stand out on the shelves.
The packaging material itself is made from strong, durable materials and keeps the freshness of the kibbles in the bag.
2) PRIMARY INGREDIENTS 9/10
The primary ingredients in the Emerald Gold Premium Adult Dog Food are Cereals including 10% rice, animal Proteins with a minimum of 14% chicken and Vegetable proteins in that order.
Cereals are the energy component of the kibbles and the inclusion of at least 10% rice may assist with sensitive stomachs as it is easy to digest. This component is available in the highest proportion and the energy available per kibble is significant. Active and younger dogs may experience the full benefit of cereals.
The second and third listed ingredients are proteins which are the muscle building and maintenance component of the kibble. Since the protein sources are derived from both animal and plant sources, the overall quality of the available protein is better. The protein derived from chicken constitutes 14% of the total available protein which is a class leader in the Premium Adult Dog Food Category as it provides a very high quality protein formulation.
3) PROTEIN CONTENT 9/10
The protein content of any dog food is, according to us, the most important factor to consider when purchasing a dog food. Our ideal dog food would have a minimum of 20% protein for adult dogs, as we consider this amount to be a standard minimum for quality dog food.
Emerald Gold Premium Adult Dog Food boasts an impressive high quality 22% protein, which is also available in the second & third highest proportion in the formulation. The sources of the protein are a mixture of plant and animal derivatives (minimum of 14% from chicken).
4) SECONDARY NUTRIENTS 10/10
The nutrients added into the dog food formulation are important to consider, depending on the overall health needs of your dog.
Nutrients which we believe should be standard across all dog foods would be joint & mobility protective agents, powerful antioxidants and Omega 3 & 6, all of which are found in Emerald Gold Premium Adult Dog Food.
