Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Nutro Adult Minced Chicken Cuisine In Tasty Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first 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 second 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 third ingredient is chicken liver. Organ meats like chicken liver are an excellent source of protein, fat, and essential vitamins and minerals. Although organs may not sound appealing, organs are an important component of a carnivorous animal's diet.

The fourth ingredient is egg product. 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 pork broth. As with other broths, pork broth is a source of flavor and moisture.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Adult Minced Chicken Cuisine In Tasty Gravy 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 Nutro recipe.

Next we have natural flavor, which enhances the flavor of the food.

The next ingredient is calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is a naturally occurring mineral supplement. Although it's often used as a dietary calcium supplement, it can also be used as a preservative or color retainer.

Then we have ferrous sulfate, which is an iron supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Adult Minced 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.

Final Thoughts

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

The official PawDiet rating for Nutro Adult Minced Chicken Cuisine In Tasty Gravy is 3.0 out of 5.
