With an average score of 8.2, Nature’s Logic’s canned dog food line is considered low risk. The line averages 14% carbohydrate, as calculated on a dry matter basis. This is considered a low to moderate amount of starch for a canned food, which is desirable. Large amounts of starch can increase insulin levels, cause obesity and negatively impact gut balance. It would be nice to see a smaller amount of carbohydrate in a canned food, but the food scores well elsewhere.
When it comes to ingredient quality, Nature’s Logic canned line does not contain any added vitamins or minerals. This can indicate higher quality ingredients. But it’s worth noting that unlike most other foods, Nature’s Logic has not been formulated to meet AAFCO nutritional requirements but has instead opted to perform feeding tests to determine the nutritional adequacy of their food.
On the ingredient safety side, Nature’s Logic canned dog foods contain known high pesticide/herbicide foods, but not in the top 5 ingredients. The food does not provide the omega-6:omega-3 ratio, which is a concern since AAFCO allows a very inflammatory ratio of 30:1.
Overall, this is a nice low-risk choice with an acceptable amount of carbohydrate and fat.
