Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Recipes Seafood Recipe Slices In Delicate Fish Sauce with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is herring. Although herring is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw herring contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of herring 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 chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is dried egg whites. Dried egg whites consist of shell-free egg whites, 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Recipes Seafood Recipe Slices In Delicate Fish 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 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 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.

Then we have mackerel. Mackerel is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, mackerel contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of mackerel is dramatically reduced after cooking.

Moving on, we have natural flavor. Although natural flavor does not provide any nutritional value, it does improve palatability.

Moving on with this review, we have 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 review 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.

Our next ingredient is dicalcium phosphate. Dicalcium phosphate (misnomer for dibasic calcium phosphate) is commonly used in pet food and treats as a dietary calcium supplement. It can also be found in breakfast cereals, enriched flour, noodle products, pharmaceutical tablets, and toothpastes.

Moving on with this review, 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.

The next ingredient in this review is taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.

Our next ingredient is choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources.
