Nutritional profile of the food

The calculated energy density of these croquettes is approximately 360 Kcal per 100g.
28.2% of the total energy is provided by proteins
36.4% of total energy is provided by assimilable carbohydrates 35.4% of total energy is provided by lipids or fats

Quantitative protein analysis

The calculated protein-calorie ratio of Royal Canin Bichon Frisé Adult is approximately 80g of protein for 1000Kcal. The protein content of these kibbles is sufficient to cover the protein needs of a whole and active small dog like sterilized or sedentary. On the other hand, they are not concentrated enough in protein for a small dog that would be both sterilized and sedentary.

" The most"

The ingredient that comes first in the ingredient list is a source of animal protein. Dehydrated poultry protein is therefore the ingredient used in the greatest quantity before cooking in these croquettes.

" Least"

The proportions and exact origin of animal proteins are not specified in the list of ingredients. The low phosphorus content of these kibbles as well as the mention of 5 vegetable protein sources out of 20 ingredients tell us that these kibbles probably contain more vegetable protein than animal protein.

Available carbohydrates

In these kibbles, the main sources of assimilable carbohydrates are rice, corn and wheat. The estimated percentage of assimilable carbohydrates of these kibbles is approximately 37%.

Absorbable carbohydrates are carbohydrates that provide energy in the form of calories to the dog. Their percentage is calculated according to the following formula: %assimilable carbohydrates=100-%proteins-%lipids-%cellulose-%ash-%moisture. When not specified by the manufacturer, humidity is estimated at 10%.

" The most"

The first source of assimilable carbohydrates is rice. It is the most digestible for the dog.

" Least"

The multiplication of carbohydrate sources reinforces the idea that these croquettes seem richer in vegetable proteins and carbohydrates than in animal proteins.

Calcium and phosphorus

The percentages of calcium and phosphorus in these kibbles are 0.60% and 0.70%, i.e. a calcium/phosphorus ratio of 1.2.
