This product is manufactured by Chewy, Inc.
According to our data, this Miko recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult cats. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Miko Premium Cat Food Tuna + Tilapia Recipe In Consomme is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.
We'll begin this review of Miko Premium Cat Food Tuna + Tilapia Recipe In Consomme with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is tuna. Although tuna is an excellent protein source, raw tuna contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of tuna 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 fish broth. Fish broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, fish broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is sea bream. Sea bream is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, sea bream contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of sea bream is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is tilapia. In 2008, researchers at Wake Forest University reported that farm-raised tilapia had a surprisingly unfavorable omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio. Given these finding, we do not consider farm-raised tilapia as a positive addition to this recipe.
The fifth ingredient is sunflower oil. Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Miko Premium Cat Food Tuna + Tilapia Recipe In Consomme 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 Miko recipe.
Next we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The next ingredient is 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 remaining ingredients in this Miko Premium Cat Food 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 Miko Premium Cat Food Tuna + Tilapia Recipe In Consomme is 5.0 out of 5.
