The Freedom range from the Blue Buffalo Company is a lower-protein alternative to their Wilderness range. This food would be great for older or less active dogs. It’s grain free too, which you can’t complain about. For this review we’ll look at the Grain Free Chicken variety.
The top ingredient is de-boned chicken, backed up by chicken meal. This is a great start and what we like to see. We also see Turkey Meal further down the ingredients as an additional protein source.
Next in the line are peas, potatoes, and pea starch, all great choices of carbs for a lower energy diet. Potatoes are one of the best sources of carbs. Peas are too, as well as being a source of other nutrients and omega-3 fats.
In keeping with Wilderness, the food is packed with legumes and fruit such as carrots, sweet potatoes, blueberries, and cranberries. We also find flaxseed and alfalfa high in the ingredients list which is a nice touch. The array of vitamins is plentiful.
I rate the Blue Buffalo company and recommend their food, this one included. 5 star.
What’s good about this food….
Decent meat and carbohydrate content, making this a good food for less active dogs. A great list of fruits and vegetables, flaxseed, and tons of vitamins.
….and what’s not so good.
Nothing to report.
