Review of Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food
This product is manufactured by Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc.
According to our data, this Evanger's recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for all life stages. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food Holistic Pheasant is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
We'll begin this review of Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food Holistic Pheasant with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is pheasant. Pheasant is an excellent novel protein source. However, raw pheasant contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of pheasant 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 water sufficient for processing. Water of course only provides moisture, a necessary component of wet products.
The third ingredient is liver. Liver is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous animal ingredients are typically very low quality and may contain almost any animal, including dogs and cats!
The fourth ingredient is tomato paste. Tomato paste is produced by cooking tomatoes for several hours. The seeds and skins of the tomatoes are removed in the process. Nutritionally, it's rich in dietary fiber, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C.
The fifth ingredient is carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food Holistic Pheasant 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 Evanger's recipe.
Next we have blueberry. Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.
The next ingredient is cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.
Then we have flaxseed. Flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.
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 dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food 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.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Evanger's Super Premium Wet Food Holistic Pheasant is 3.0 out of 5.
