This product is manufactured by Sunshine Mills, Inc.
According to our data, this Evolve recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult cats. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Evolve Classic Crafted Meals Liver Recipe For Cats is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.
We'll begin this review of Evolve Classic Crafted Meals Liver Recipe For Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is poultry. Poultry is a controversial ingredient because the source animal is not specified. Anonymous ingredients such as poultry are typically low-quality ingredients in comparison to named protein sources (e.g. chicken, turkey, duck).
The second ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which of course provides moisture.
The third ingredient is chicken liver. 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 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.
The fifth ingredient is natural flavor, which is likely included to improve palatability.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Evolve Classic Crafted Meals Liver Recipe For Cats 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 Evolve recipe.
Next we have powdered cellulose. Powdered cellulose is produced from minuscule pieces of wood pulp and plant fibers. Other than its fiber content, powdered cellulose lacks any nutritional contribution.
The next ingredient is locust bean gum. Locust bean gum is a galactomannan vegetable gum extracted from the seeds of the carob tree. This ingredient is primarily used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in cat food.
Then we have carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.
The remaining ingredients in this Evolve Classic Crafted Meals 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 contains anonymous meat ingredients. These are not necessarily always negative; however, they are typically low quality and inexpensive additions. If the particular anonymous meat ingredient is controversial or low quality, it should have been discussed earlier in this review. Otherwise, it is safe to assume the anonymous meat ingredient is an acceptable addition.
The official PawDiet rating for Evolve Classic Crafted Meals Liver Recipe For Cats is 4.0 out of 5.
