We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Enchanted Evening With Roasted Quail In Sauce with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 turkey broth. Turkey broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, turkey broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is vegetable broth. As with other broths, vegetable broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
The fourth ingredient is dried egg product. Dried egg product consists of shell-free eggs which are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.
The fifth ingredient is natural flavor. Natural flavor enhances the flavor of the product. The difference between natural and artificial flavoring is that natural flavoring starts from a plant or animal whereas artificial flavoring is entirely man-made.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Enchanted Evening With Roasted Quail In Sauce 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 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 quail. Quail is another excellent novel protein source. As with other raw meats, quail contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of quail is dramatically reduced after cooking.
Then we have agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
Moving on, 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 with this review, we have 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.
The next ingredient in this review is sodium phosphate. Sodium phosphate is a generic term used for salts of sodium and phosphate. It is most likely used as a emulsifier, thickening agent, or leavening agent.
Our next ingredient is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
choline chloride is the next ingredient in this recipe. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Next on the list is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a cat diet.
The next ingredient in this recipe is taurine, 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 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.
