Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites Slow Roasted Recipe With Real Beef & Garden Vegetables Pate with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The second ingredient is vegetable broth. Vegetable broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, vegetable broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third ingredient is beef. Although beef is an excellent protein source, raw beef contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of beef 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 fourth ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.

The fifth ingredient is tapioca starch. Tapioca starch 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites Slow Roasted Recipe With Real Beef & Garden Vegetables Pate 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 dried egg product. Dried egg product consists of shell-free eggs which 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.

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.
