Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Holistic Select Grain Free Adult Health Anchovy & Sardine and Salmon Meals Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is anchovy meal. Anchovy meal is produced by cooking anchovies using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of anchovy and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The second ingredient is sardine meal. Sardine meal is produced by a process called rendering. In short, the rendering process involves cooking sardine until the moisture level falls below 10%. By removing the moisture, we're left with a concentrated protein powder made with sardine (i.e. sardine meal).

The third ingredient is ground brown rice. Ground brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, ground brown rice is easy to digest.

The fourth ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The fifth ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fat is an important part of your cats diet, chicken fat in particular is an outstanding source of omega-6 fatty acids.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Holistic Select Grain Free Adult Health Anchovy & Sardine and Salmon Meals Recipe 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 Holistic Select recipe.

Next we have oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.

The next ingredient is salmon meal. Salmon meal is produced by cooking salmon using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of salmon and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

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 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.

Moving on with this review, we have dried beet pulp. Dried beet pulp is the by-product which remains once sugar has been extracted from sugar beets. The primary contribution of beet pulp is dietary fiber.

We'd also like to note that beet pulp is fairly controversial in pet food. Proponents claim that beet pulp can promote intestinal health and regulate blood sugar. However, opponents claim that beet pulp is an inexpensive filler.

The remaining ingredients in this Holistic Select Grain Free Adult Health 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.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
