Ingredients Analysis

The first and second ingredients are beef and pork.  Both meats are defined as “the clean flesh derived from slaughtered cattle or pork” and includes skeletal muscle or the muscle tissues of the tongue, diaphragm, heart or esophagus.  1

They are also naturally rich in all 11 essential amino acids required by a cat to sustain life.

The third ingredient is water which adds nothing but moisture to this food.  Water is a routine finding in most wet cat foods..

The fourth ingredient is organic carrots.  Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, minerals and dietary fiber.

The fifth ingredient is organic peas.  Peas are a quality source of carbohydrates.  And like all legumes, they’re rich in natural fiber.

However, peas contain about 25% protein, a factor that must be considered when judging the meat content of this cat food.

The sixth ingredient is organic sweet potatoes.  Sweet potatoes are a gluten-free source of complex carbohydrates in cat food.  They are naturally rich in dietary fiber and beta carotene.

The seventh ingredient is liver.  Normally, liver can be considered a quality component.  However, in this case, the source of the liver is not identified. For this reason, it’s impossible to judge the quality of this item.

The eighth ingredient is organic guar gum, a gelling or thickening agent found in many wet pet foods.  Refined from dehusked guar beans, guar gum can add a notable amount of dietary fiber to any 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.

 

However, this recipe contains sodium selenite, a controversial form of the mineral selenium.  Sodium selenite appears to be nutritionally inferior to the more natural source of selenium found in selenium yeast.

This food also contains chelated minerals that have been chemically attached to protein. This makes them easier to absorb. Chelated minerals are usually found in better cat foods.
