Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Holistic Select Grain Free Chicken, Whitefish and Herring Pate Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

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 whitefish. Although whitefish is an excellent protein and fat source, raw whitefish contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of whitefish 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 fifth ingredient is herring. Although herring is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw herring contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of herring 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Holistic Select Grain Free Chicken, Whitefish and Herring 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 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.

The next ingredient is potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Holistic Select Grain Free 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.
