Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Addiction Canned Cat Food Black Forest Rabbit and Blueberries Entree with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is rabbit. Although rabbit is an excellent protein source, raw rabbit contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of rabbit is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The second ingredient is water. Water of course only provides moisture, a necessary component of wet cat foods.

The third ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.

The fourth ingredient is liver. Liver is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous animal ingredients are typically very low quality and may contain almost any animal, including dogs and cats!

The fifth ingredient is blueberry. Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Addiction Canned Cat Food Black Forest Rabbit and Blueberries Entree are not as important as the first five ingredients.

However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Addiction recipe.

Next we have guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.

The next ingredient is dried brewers yeast. Dried brewers yeast is a by-product of the brewing industry. Brewers yeast is rich in various minerals and contains a notable amount of protein.

Then we have taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.

The remaining ingredients in this Addiction Canned Cat Food recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by cats. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
