Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites Pate With Real Chicken In Gravy 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 water. Of course, water only provides moisture, which is a necessary component in wet foods.

The third 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 fourth ingredient is rice flour. Rice flour is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are included in the flour, rice flour can provide a notable amount of fiber and nutrition. However, because the type of rice ("brown" or "white") is not specified, we cannot make this determination.

The fifth 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites Pate With Real Chicken In Gravy 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 Nature's Recipe recipe.

Next we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

The next ingredient is guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.

The remaining ingredients in this Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites 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.
