Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is chicken. Chicken is the most common meat ingredient used in cat food. It provides high-quality protein and fat. However, more than 60% of chicken is water.

The second 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 third ingredient is carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

The fourth ingredient is 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 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 White Meat Chicken & 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 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 next ingredient is potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

Then we have 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.

Moving on, we have natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.

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 a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by cats. This property is typically found in lower quality products.

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Nature's Recipe Culinary Favorites Slow Roasted Recipe With Real White Meat Chicken & Garden Vegetables Pate is 2.5 out of 5.
