Fromm Dog Food Review

The From dog food products comes in three refined product lines to satisfy the different needs and nutritional requirements of dogs of whatever ages, breed, or special needs.  The first Fromm product line includes Four-Star Gourmet recipes using different sources of animal protein such as pork, duck, chicken, whitefish, and salmon. The Gold Nutritionals product line is formulated based on a holistic approach to come up with a complete and nutritionally balanced diet for dogs. The Fromm Classics Concept is based on the “four-grain principle” and is an original company classic recipe handed down and refined from one generation to the next.

We believe this is one of the best dog food brands available today and highly recommend Fromm.

All the Fromm dog food entrees use human grade meat sources which have been inspected by the USDA. Meat sources include duck, whitefish, chicken, and salmon which are guaranteed by Fromm to be free of medications or hormones.

The problem with incorporating fresh or raw meat into dog food formulas is the amount of water that these meat sources contain. Raw meat consists of about 80% water which dissipates during processing. What’s left of the ingredient is just a fraction of the original ingredient. In an effort to increase the protein content of the ration, Fromm incorporates meat meals such as chicken meal and duck meal. Meat meals are considered meat concentrates which contain almost 300% more protein compared to fresh meat sources.

Fish meal is also incorporated in some Fromm dog food formulas. Although it is a good source of viable protein, the source has not been specified. Most fish meals are made from by-products of fish operations which have been rendered unfit for human consumption. One positive aspect, though, is that the fish meal they are using is claimed to be ethoxyquin-free.

After the meat sources, the next ingredients of Fromm dog food products include brown rice, barley, millet and oatmeal. These ingredients are quality whole grains which are excellent source of complex carbohydrates and fiber.  These whole grains are easily to digest and possess low glycemic index which can help maintain the stability of a dog’s blood sugar levels. Oatmeal and millet are gluten-free and are also considered good sources of B-vitamins. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of carbohydrates.

There are a few controversial ingredients which have been identified in Fromm dog food product formulas which include tomato pomace, brewer’s dried yeast, and beet pulp.

Tomato pomace is a by-product when tomato is processed into catsup, juice, or sauce. It has been picked out as a controversial ingredient because of the possibility of insecticide residues present on tomato skin.

Brewer’s yeast is a good source of protein however it has been linked to hypersensitivity reactions in dogs and some critics say that yeast can predispose bloat, a life-threatening condition.

Beet pulp is a good source of fiber but some look at it as an inexpensive filler ingredient.

Customer Reviews

Fromm dog food formulas have been met with positive reviews from satisfied dog downers.

Many dog owners whose dogs have grain allergies like Fromm’s grain-free dog formulas. They also report that Fromm dog food is highly palatable even finicky dogs consume their daily rations without coaxing. Many dog owners love how Fromm salmon formula improves their dogs’ hair coats.

Some dog owners report of digestive upsets but have attributed these to a drastic change in feeding particularly during switching from one brand to Fromm’s.

Overall, we highly recommend Fromm dog food brand and believe that both its formulas and ingredients are top-notch.
