Taste of the Wild has a loyal consumer base but has faced a number of issues over the years. The same can often be said for many large American brands, but it’s worth doing a little research if you feed this food.

With a focus on a primitive canine diet it boasts a high protein (32%) and fat (18%) content and lower carbs, which is what we like to see.

We’ll scrutinise the ingredients of the High Prairie formula and see what the ingredients tell us about the food…

Initially we find three meat ingredients, a combo of bison, lamb meal, and chicken meal. This packs a punch, but we’re also told bison is 12% of the product. It’s possible the first six ingredients are also 12%, making the food 24% potato (sweet & regular), and 12% peas.

We also find beef, venison, eggs, and fish meal which should push the animal constituents in the food above 50% – that’s respectable compared to many other kibbles.

A gripe about the food is canola oil, considered by many as an unhealthy processed oil. Many premium foods these days opt for a healthier (and more expensive) alternative such as flax, coconut, or salmon oil.

As a whole the ingredients and composition are good, and if you’re concerned about the canola then the simple option is mixing it up with another brand which doesn’t have canola.

As far as the ingredients go it’s deserving of a high rating.
