Only weeks after Nood was released, and shortly after we wrote a glowing review, the product quietly changed. Manufacture switched from USA to Thailand, and the ingredients swayed from decent ingredients to not so decent ones like rice and tapioca. Such a shame with what was originally a very promising product readily available at Coles.

It still holds it’s own amongst supermarket brands, but this review is for the slightly diminished Nood version 2.

Nood Dog Food Review

The first two ingredients are both chicken (a combo of chicken + poultry meal). It’s a good start and ensures a decent amount of meat in the food, unlike other supermarket brands. The 2nd and 3rd ingredients are possibly in equal proportion, being a combination of rice and tapioca. This is a shame in respect to the previous formula which had legumes and sweet potato, but it’s pretty standard for a dog food to contain as much cheaper ingredients as possible. There are worse alternatives to rice and tapioca, and it’s good to see they haven’t opted for nasties like wheat or cereal/cereal by-products.

The 5th and 6th ingredients are similar – chicken fat and digested animal protein (which I assume is what used to be referred to as animal digest which has a bad name from being a little gruesome).

We find some nice inclusions such as salmon oil, some token mixed berries, green peas and other veggies, and decent selections of natural preservatives and antioxidant.

For a supermarket brand it’s pretty good, especially considering the affordability. Why not mix it up with some fresh meats, organs, and eggs from the adjoining aisles?
