We'll begin this review of Holistic Select Grain Free Canned Chicken Pate Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken. Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken 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 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 third 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 fourth ingredient is turkey. Turkey is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, turkey contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of turkey is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fifth ingredient is ground flaxseed. Ground 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Holistic Select Grain Free Canned Chicken Pate 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 tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
The next ingredient is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Holistic Select Grain Free Canned 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 Holistic Select Grain Free Canned Chicken Pate Recipe is 5.0 out of 5.
