We'll begin this review of Nulo MedalSeries Adult Cat - Chicken & Peas Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken. Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken 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 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. Cod is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, cod contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of cod is dramatically reduced after cooking.
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 MedalSeries Adult Cat - Chicken & Peas 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 typically collected while cooking chicken using a process called rendering. Chicken fat is a relatively high quality source of essential fatty acids. In particular, chicken fat is high in linoleic acid, an important omega-6 fatty acid.
Then 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, we have natural chicken flavor. As the name implies, natural chicken flavor provides chicken flavor to the product. This particular flavor is derived from natural sources which may or may not include real chicken.
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 MedalSeries 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 MedalSeries Adult Cat - Chicken & Peas Recipe is 5.0 out of 5.
