Nulo MedalSeries Indoor Cat - Trout & Duck Recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for the maintenance of adult cats.
We'll begin this review of Nulo MedalSeries Indoor Cat - Trout & Duck Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is trout. Although trout is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw trout contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of trout 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 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 third ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by a process called rendering. In short, the rendering process involves cooking chicken until the moisture level falls below 10%. By removing the moisture, we're left with a concentrated protein powder made with chicken (i.e. chicken meal).
The fourth 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.
The fifth ingredient is lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nulo MedalSeries Indoor Cat - Trout & Duck 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 pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.
The next ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid). Fat is an important part of your cats diet, chicken fat in particular is an outstanding source of omega-6 fatty acids.
Then we have duck. Duck is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, duck contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of duck is dramatically reduced after cooking.
Moving on, we have natural flavor. Unlike artificial flavoring, natural flavoring is produced using plants and/or animal parts.
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 Indoor Cat - Trout & Duck Recipe is 5.0 out of 5.
