Review of Fussie Cat Premium
Tuna Formula In Aspic
This product is manufactured by Pets Global.
According to our data, this Fussie Cat recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult cats. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Fussie Cat Premium Tuna Formula In Aspic 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 Fussie Cat Premium Tuna Formula In Aspic with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is tuna. Although tuna is an excellent protein source, raw tuna contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of tuna 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. Of course, water only provides moisture, which is a necessary component in wet foods.
The third ingredient is sunflower oil. Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.
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 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Fussie Cat Premium Tuna Formula In Aspic 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 Fussie Cat recipe.
Next we have carrageenan. Carrageenan is a substance extracted from edible seaweeds. Carrageenan is typically used for its thickening and emulsifying properties.
The next ingredient is 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.
Then we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Moving on, we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Fussie Cat Premium 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 Fussie Cat Premium Tuna Formula In Aspic is 3.0 out of 5.
