A La Carte has been around a while with a selection of decent grain-based foods. For this review we’ll take a look at their grain-free range, specifically Chicken, Lentils, and Seaweed.
It’s great to see a high protein of 30% and fat of 15%, as high protein and fat equals lower carbohydrates (aka sugars). I estimate 35% carbs, whereas many supermarket kibbles are 50%+.
Dried chicken is the first ingredient and what we would expect to see for a canine diet, but we need to consider the top four or five ingredients to be relatively equal. These include potato, green peas, chickpeas, and sweet potato. It’s nice to see a variety, but it’s good to be aware this is a legume-based kibble.
There’s some really nice ingredients in this food to balance it out, with eggs as a great source of nutrients, fish oil and salmon meal as a source of omega fatty acids for healthy joints and coat. It’s really nice to see the inclusion of probiotics to boost digestive health.
Overall this is a decent food. Price wise it’s similar to Black Hawk, but this looks like the better of the two.
