We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Wild Rocky Creek 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 turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The fifth 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Wild Rocky Creek 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.

The next ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.
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 taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.

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