Ingredients Analysis

The first ingredient is yellowfin 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 nutritionally empty. But because they add both flavor and moisture to a cat food they are a common addition component in many canned products.

From here there are no other items listed.

Nutrient Analysis

Based on its ingredients alone, Farmina N&D Natural Tuna recipe looks like an above-average wet product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 80%, a fat level of 2% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 10%.

As a group, the brand features an above-average protein content of 78.2% and a below-average fat level of 5%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 8.8% for the overall product line, alongside a fat to protein ratio of 6%.

This means this Farmina N&D Natural range contains higher than average protein, lower than average carbohydrate, lower than average fat, when compared to typical wet cat food.

Final Word

This cat food is high quality and contains just good quality meat protein sources and broths.  It is expensive versus other wet cat foods, but the minimal ingredients are high quality.

The Cat Food Advisor highly recommends this range of recipes.
