Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free Wild-Caught Salmon Recipe Morsels In Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is salmon. Although salmon is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw salmon contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of salmon 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 chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which of course provides moisture.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is chicken. Chicken is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, chicken contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced after cooking.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Castor & Pollux Pristine Grain Free Wild-Caught Salmon Recipe Morsels In Gravy 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 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 next ingredient is organic dried pea. Organic dried peas are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

Then we have organic carrot. Organic carrots are an excellent source dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

Moving on, 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.
