B.F.F. Best Feline Friend Originals Tuna & Turkey Tickles Cat-Tastic Recipe In Gravy is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.
We'll begin this review of B.F.F. Best Feline Friend Originals Tuna & Turkey Tickles Cat-Tastic Recipe In Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is tuna broth. Tuna broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, tuna broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The second 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 third ingredient is turkey. Turkey is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, turkey contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of turkey is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is sunflower oil. Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.
The fifth ingredient is tapioca starch. Tapioca starch 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in B.F.F. Best Feline Friend Originals Tuna & Turkey Tickles Cat-Tastic Recipe In Gravy 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 B.F.F. Best Feline Friend 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 calcium sulfate. Calcium sulfate is a food additive that helps control acidity levels and functions as a firming agent. It's not a desirable ingredient, but it is considered safe by the FDA in small quantities.
Then we have tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
Moving on, we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this B.F.F. Best Feline Friend Originals 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 B.F.F. Best Feline Friend Originals Tuna & Turkey Tickles Cat-Tastic Recipe In Gravy is 2.5 out of 5.
