Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet With Fresh Chicken For Kittens with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The second ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The third ingredient is turkey meal. Turkey meal is produced by cooking turkey using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of turkey and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

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 pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet With Fresh Chicken 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 Canidae recipe.

Next we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fat is an important part of your cats diet, chicken fat in particular is an outstanding source of omega-6 fatty acids.

The next ingredient is lamb meal. Lamb meal is produced by cooking lamb using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of lamb and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

Then we have menhaden meal. Menhaden meal is produced by a process called rendering. In short, the rendering process involves cooking menhaden until the moisture level falls below 10%. By removing the moisture, we're left with a concentrated protein powder made with menhaden (i.e. menhaden meal).

Moving on, we have 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.

The remaining ingredients in this Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet With Fresh Chicken For Kittens is 5.0 out of 5.
