We'll begin this review of Addiction Dry Cat Food Salmon Bleu with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is salmon meal. Salmon meal is produced by cooking salmon using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of salmon and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The second ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The third ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.
The fourth ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Chicken fat is a relatively good source of linoleic acid, which is an important essential fatty acid.
The fifth ingredient is whole pea. Whole peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Addiction Dry Cat Food Salmon Bleu 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 natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.
The next ingredient is dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Addiction Dry Cat Food recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.
Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by cats. This property is typically found in lower quality products.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Addiction Dry Cat Food Salmon Bleu is 3.0 out of 5.
