We'll begin this review of AvoDerm Wild By Nature Tuna With Prawns with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is tuna. Although tuna is an excellent protein source, raw tuna contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of tuna 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 chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The third ingredient is tapioca flour. Tapioca flour is a gluten-free carbohydrate extracted from cassava roots. Carbohydrates are a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.
The fourth ingredient is pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), which is most likely used because of it's essential omega-6 fatty acid content.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in AvoDerm Wild By Nature Tuna With Prawns 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 AvoDerm recipe.
Next we have pea flour. Pea flour is made from roasted peas which have been processed into a powder. It's naturally rich in protein and dietary fiber.
The next ingredient is lobster meal. Lobster meal is produced by cooking lobster using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of lobster and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
Then we have pea protein. Pea protein is produced by removing the starchy parts of peas. Pea protein is considered controversial because it provides a substantial plant based protein boost. This boost is undesirable because plant based protein is typically lower in biological value when compared to meat based proteins.
The remaining ingredients in this AvoDerm Wild By Nature 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.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for AvoDerm Wild By Nature Tuna With Prawns is 4.5 out of 5.
