Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken Recipe For Kittens with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken. Chicken is the most common meat ingredient used in cat food. It provides high-quality protein and fat. However, more than 60% of chicken is water.

The second ingredient is chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third ingredient is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a cat diet.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken Recipe For Kittens 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 Blue Buffalo recipe.

Next we have natural flavor. The usage of natural flavor to improve palatability is fairly common practice in cat food products.

The next ingredient is flaxseed. Flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.

Then we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

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

Moving on with this review, we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).

The next ingredient in this review is carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.

Our next ingredient is cassia gum. Cassia gum is made from the endosperm of a legume called senna obtusifolia. It's commonly used as a thickener and gelling agent in pet food.

The remaining ingredients in this Blue Buffalo Wilderness 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.
