We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Decadent Delight With Shrimp with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is ocean whitefish. Although ocean whitefish is an excellent protein and fat source, raw ocean whitefish contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of ocean whitefish 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 fish broth. Fish broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, fish broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is chicken. Chicken is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, chicken contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is 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 fifth ingredient is turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Decadent Delight With Shrimp 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 Canidae recipe.
Next we have shrimp. Although shrimp is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw shrimp contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of shrimp 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 next ingredient is natural flavor. Although natural flavor does not provide any nutritional value, it does improve palatability.
Then we have calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is a naturally occurring mineral supplement. Although it's often used as a dietary calcium supplement, it can also be used as a preservative or color retainer.
Moving on, we have agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
Moving on with this review, 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.
The next ingredient in this review is choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Our next ingredient is salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and cats. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
taurine is the next ingredient in this recipe, 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 Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore 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.
