Holistic Select is one of the reasonably priced mid-range foods available in Australia. Let’s take a look at the Chicken & Rice formula…
There are four main ingredients in the food of which chicken meal is the first, but it’s likely outweighed by the three grain ingredients which follow – brown rice, white rice, and oatmeal. We can assume it’s 1 part chicken to 3 parts grain, and this ties in with the moderate 24% protein. At least the grains are decent, especially brown rice and oatmeal. If you want more meat check out Earthborn Holistic as the premium big sister.
There’s a wide range of ingredients in the food. We find pork meal, chicken fat, anchovy and sardine meal – all these boost the levels of quality meat and fish products as well as bringing vital nutrients and oils to the food. Menhaden fish oil is a nice inclusion, great for heart health and a healthy coat.
There’s a whole range of fruits and veggies in the food which can’t be a bad thing, as well as a decent range of vitamins and minerals.
Apart from being slightly heavy on grains this is definitely one of the better foods, and it helps that it’s easy to get hold of. Recommended.
