Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free Free-Range Chicken Recipe Pate 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 water sufficient for processing, which of course provides moisture.

The third ingredient is organic chicken liver. Organic 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 fourth 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.

The fifth ingredient is organic dried pea. Organic dried peas are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free Free-Range Chicken Recipe Pate 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 Castor & Pollux recipe.

Next we have natural flavor. Unlike artificial flavoring, natural flavoring is produced using plants and/or animal parts.

The next ingredient is 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.

Then we have organic cranberry. Organic cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.

The remaining ingredients in this Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free 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.
