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

The third ingredient is salmon. Salmon is an oily marine and freshwater fish not only high in protein but also omega 3 fatty acids, essential oils needed by every cat to sustain life.

The fourth ingredient is tapioca starch, a gluten-free, starchy carbohydrate extract made from the root of the cassava plant.

The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth ingredients are minerals chelate, iron amino acid chelate, manganese amino acid chelate, calcium iodate.

Chelated minerals are chemically attached to protein. This makes them easier to absorb. Chelated minerals are usually found in better cat foods.

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, Aujou by RAWZ Aku Tuna & Salmon Cat Food Recipe  looks like an above-average wet product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 61.1%, a fat level of 8.3% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 22.6%.

As a group, the brand features an above-average protein content of 61.1% and a below-average fat level of 8.3%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 22.6% for the overall product line, alongside a fat to protein ratio of 14%.

This means this Aujou by RAWZ 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 comes in gravy and broth style.  Protein content is high and derived from good quality animal meat and fish. Each recipe is low in fat and carbohydrate, so offer a good food option to consider.

The Cat Food Advisor recommends this food.
