We'll begin this review of Nulo FreeStyle Cat & Kitten - Chicken & Cod Recipe 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 meal. Chicken meal is produced by cooking chicken using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of chicken 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 cod. Although cod is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw cod contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of cod 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 fifth ingredient is whole pea. Whole peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nulo FreeStyle Cat & Kitten - Chicken & Cod Recipe 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 Nulo recipe.
Next we have lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
The next ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid). Chicken fat is a relatively good source of linoleic acid, which is an important essential fatty acid.
Then we have natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.
Moving on, we have pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.
Moving on with this review, we have ground flaxseed. Ground flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Nulo FreeStyle 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 Nulo FreeStyle Cat & Kitten - Chicken & Cod Recipe is 5.0 out of 5.
