We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Love At First Sight With Trout In Sauce 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 vegetable broth. As with other broths, vegetable broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
The fourth 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 fifth 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Adore Love At First Sight With Trout 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 natural flavor, which is used to enhance the flavor of the food.
The next 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.
Then we have trout. Although trout is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw trout contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of trout 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.
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 agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.
The next ingredient in this review 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.
Our next ingredient 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.
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 taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.
The next ingredient in this recipe is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a cat diet.
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.
