Manufacturer's product description

" Our Adult Lamb+Rice dry food has been prepared with FSG (Fleischsaftgarung). FSG is a method of preparing fresh meat. It comes from the kitchen rather than the feed industry. It was modelled on techniques that top chefs often use to prepare meat, in a tastier and also healthier way.

With FSG (Fleischsaftgarung), fresh meat is cooked in a vacuum at low temperature, using only its own meat juices. After a long cooking time, during which the moisture of the meat juice is slowly reduced, this dry food is created. "

Hi David one thing i don't understand is on the label it says 15% broken rice but on chart the percentage of carbs is almost 38% and on the dry matter basis it,s 44%. It doesnt ads up or am i missing something. What are the other sources of carbs in the ingredient list which i am missing. Platinum says their kibble contains less carbohydrate on their web site. Thank you very much for your answer. I habe been feeding one of my dogs their vetactive hypoallergenic line which only has iberico as the source of protein and he absolutely loves it. I want to switch my other dog to platinum as well but when i started the research on the ingredient list i was a bit worried about the high percentage of carbs.

There is something I would really like to understand better. How can a food with 70% lamb meat has 46.5% carbs? And how and why a dog food with 46.5% carbs gets a ranking 4.6 out of 5?

Hi Dimitrina and apologies for my slow reply. The answer to your question lies in the fact that the 70% meat is fresh meat. Fresh meat contains roughly two thirds water which is mostly lost during the production of dry foods. This means that the amount of meat remaining in the finished product is actually quite a lot less than 70%, probably closer to 37% in this case. This is still plenty by any standard. The food scores highly because it is an excellent food. As far as we're concerned, carbs per-se are not a bad thing for dogs. In fact, some whole grains like brown rice can be quite beneficial. I hope that helps

Lovely quality food and one of the few my fussy boy would eat, I also like the fact that being semi-soft you can break it up (as I use most of their food allowance for training purposes....) However, we did have paw licking going on which has stopped since we stopped using this food. Also a little beard staining which is not great for a mini schnauzer which is shown... Not the worst I have seen, but not the best either! Wish I could find a high quality kibble (like this!) which does NOT have the beard staining... I did try switching to the Platinum chicken kibble, but the itchy feet problem worsened (the food smelt awful too, I was not convinced about the quality compared to the lamb variety). i have used their wet foods and they are very good, I will try these for a while...

This has been brilliant for my sensitive overweight daschund. i was told by the very helpful gentleman on the phone that it would help her maintain her weight as it was leaner than the other foods they make. in a space of a month, I'm feeding less than i did my old kibble and the change in my girl is amazing. Her coat seems shinier and her stools firmer, and more importantly her sensitive tummy seems to have given up the fight too!
