Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is 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.

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 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.

The fifth ingredient is salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a cat diet.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Recipes Trout and Lobster 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 lobster. Lobster is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, lobster contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of lobster is dramatically reduced after cooking.

The next ingredient is natural flavor. The usage of natural flavor to improve palatability is fairly common practice in cat food products.

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 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.

Moving on with this review, we have carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.

The next ingredient in this review is parsley, which is a nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Our next ingredient is potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

sun-cured alfalfa meal is the next ingredient in this recipe. Sun-cured alfalfa meal is produced from the alfalfa flowering plant. it's rich in plant based protein, dietary fiber, and various vitamins and minerals.

Next on the list is cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.

The next ingredient in this recipe 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.

Next we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Essentially fatty acids are crucially important for optimal health, chicken fat happens to be an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids.

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

Then we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).

The remaining ingredients in this Canidae Grain Free Pure Recipes 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.
