Glow is exclusive to PETstock, so essentially a home brand.
The first ingredient is chicken meal, which is a protein rich dried form of chicken, but it’s likely the first four ingredients are in a similar proportion. The next two are lupins and beans, likely outweighing the chicken 2:1. Then we have sorghum as the fourth key ingredient.
The majority of the protein looks but that’s what we’ve come to expect from kibbles. Plant protein is cheaper. That said, these ingredients are better than we find in cereal-based kibbles which puts this up into the mid-range category.
There’s some nice inclusions in the food, such as chia seeds as a good source of B vitamins and omega fats for skin and coat. Chia, interestingly, is related to the mint plant family. DHA (Algae) is another source of omega fats (omega 3) and is something we should see in all pet foods as an essential.
It’s good to see the use of natural rather than synthetic antioxidants (which are carcinogenic). These are included to preserve the food.
Overall this is a solid food with no real nasties, and the only real caveat is it’s more plant-based than meat-based.
