Real Chicken Recipe For Kittens
This product is manufactured by Nature’s Variety.
According to our data, this Instinct recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for growing kittens. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Instinct Original Canned Real Chicken Recipe For Kittens is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for growing kittens.
We'll begin this review of Instinct Original Canned Real Chicken Recipe For Kittens 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 beef liver. Beef liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, beef 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 salmon. Although salmon is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw salmon contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of salmon 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 egg. Eggs 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Instinct Original Canned Real Chicken Recipe For Kittens 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 Instinct recipe.
Next we have montmorillonite clay. Montmorillonite clay is a naturally occurring group of minerals which are believed to provide resistance to various environmental toxins. In addition, montmorillonite clay is often used as an anti-caking agent in pet food.
The next ingredient is dried kelp, which is a nutritionally dense seaweed. Kelp is naturally rich in a multitude of vitamins and minerals.
Then we have taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.
Moving on, we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
Moving on with this review, we have salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and cats. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
The remaining ingredients in this Instinct Original 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.
