Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Instinct Raw Boost Indoor Health Grain-Free Recipe With Real Rabbit with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is rabbit. Although rabbit is an excellent protein source, raw rabbit contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of rabbit 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 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.

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

The fourth ingredient is pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.

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

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Instinct Raw Boost Indoor Health Grain-Free Recipe With Real Rabbit 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 chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.

The next ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.

Then we have rabbit meal. Rabbit meal is produced by cooking rabbit using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of rabbit and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

Moving on, we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), which is most likely used because of it's essential omega-6 fatty acid content.

Moving on with this review, we have dried tomato pomace. Dried tomato pomace is a by-product of tomato manufacturing. It's considered a controversial ingredient because many people believe it is an inexpensive low quality filler. However, tomato pomace provides a notable amount of dietary fiber, B vitamins, Lycopene, and vitamin A. Although it is a very inexpensive ingredient, it is not nutritionally empty.

The next ingredient in this review is natural flavor, which enhances the flavor of the food.

The remaining ingredients in this Instinct Raw Boost 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.
