Highly Recommended

Gosbi Fresko wet cat food receives the Cat Food Advisor rating, 5 stars.

This range of food has very few ingredients.  The first and second in all recipes is animal protein.  The protein content is very high and carbohydrates low.  There are several recipes which are also low in fat.  This is a good range of food to choose for your cat.

Pros
  • Very high protein content
  • Low in carbohydrate
  • Low fat recipe options
  • No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
Cons
  • This is a complimentary food
  • More expensive than other cat foods
  • Not complete and balanced to AAFCO

Each recipe includes its AAFCO nutrient profile: Growth (kitten), Maintenance (adult), All Life Stages, Supplemental or Unspecified.

The Gosbi Fresko product line includes ten wet cat foods.

Ingredients Analysis

The first ingredient is tuna loin. 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 shrimps which are small crustaceans closely related to krill. Shrimp is a rich source of many nutrients, including iodine and omega 3 fatty acids.

The third ingredient is rice. Is this whole grain rice, brown rice or white rice? Since the word “rice” doesn’t tell us much, it’s impossible to judge the quality of this item.

The fourth ingredient is seaweeds. Seaweed is rich in vitamins and minerals.

Recipe star rating 5

Nutrient Analysis

Based on its ingredients alone, Gosbi Fresko Tuna Loin with Shrimp (for sterilized cats) looks like an above-average wet product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 60%, a fat level of 7.5% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 24.5%.

As a group, the brand features an above-average protein content of 60.1% and a near-average fat level of 12.9%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 19.1% for the overall product line, alongside a fat to protein ratio of 24%.

This means this Gosbi Fresko range contains higher than average protein, lower than average carbohydrate and near-average fat, when compared to typical wet cat food.

Final Word

This range of food delivers a good combination of nutrients, although it is a complementary food.  This needs to be considered when choosing this food.  However, these recipes are very good quality.

The Cat Food Advisor recommends this food.
