Ingredients Analysis

The first ingredient is tuna. Tuna is an oily marine fish not only high in protein but also omega 3 fatty acids, essential oils needed by every cat to sustain life.

This item is typically sourced from clean, undecomposed whole fish and fish cuttings of commercial fish operations. 1

The second ingredient is fish broth. Broths are of only modest nutritional value. Yet because they add both flavor and moisture to a cat food, they are a common component in many wet products.

The third ingredient is seabream, a marine or freshwater species native to Canada and the California coast.

The fourth ingredient is tilapia. This item is typically sourced from clean, undecomposed whole fish and fish cuttings of commercial fish operations. 2

Although it is a quality item, raw fish contains up to 73% water. After cooking, most of that moisture is lost, reducing the meat content to just a fraction of its original weight. After processing, this item would probably account for a smaller part of the total content of the finished product.

The fifth ingredient is sunflower oil. Sunflower oil is nutritionally similar to safflower oil. Since these oils are high in omega-6 fatty acids and contain no omega-3s, they’re considered less nutritious than canola or flaxseed oils. 

Sunflower oil is notable for its resistance to heat damage during cooking.

There are several different types of sunflower oil, some better than others. Without knowing more, it’s impossible to judge the quality of this ingredient.

The sixth ingredient is potassium chloride, a nutritional supplement sometimes used as a replacement for the sodium found in table salt. 

The seventh ingredient is tricalcium phosphate, a beneficial source of calcium and phosphorus. In addition, this additive is used in wet foods as an emulsifier – an agent designed to disperse a food’s fats more evenly in water.

The eighth ingredient is magnesium sulfate, likely used here as a dietary magnesium supplement.

However, it’s unfortunate the company chose to include in its recipe. Without this controversial ingredient, we may have been compelled to award this line a higher rating.

That said, menadione phobics may wish to ignore our rating and look elsewhere for another product.

From here the list goes on to include a number of other items. But to be realistic, ingredients located this far down the list (other than nutritional supplements) are not likely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Nutrient Analysis

Based on its ingredients alone, American Journey Landmark Tuna & Tilapia Recipe looks like an above-average wet product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 66.7%, a fat level of 11.1% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 14.2%.

As a group, the brand features an above-average protein content of 66.7% and a below-average fat level of 11.1%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 14.2% for the overall product line, alongside a fat to protein ratio of 17%.

This means this American Journey Landmark range contains higher than average protein, lower than average carbohydrate and lower than average fat, when compared to typical wet cat food.

Final Word

This range of food delivers a high level of protein, derived from good quality animal meat and fish. Each recipe is cooked in broth providing good hydration. Vitamins and minerals have also been added to make this a good diet option for adult cats.
