We'll begin this review of Nutro Adult Sliced Turkey Entree In Savory Sauce with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is turkey broth. Turkey broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, turkey broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The second ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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 third ingredient is turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
The fourth ingredient is pork broth. As with other broths, pork broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
The fifth 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Adult Sliced Turkey Entree In Savory Sauce 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. Natural flavoring does not contribute any nutritional value.
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 Sliced 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 Nutro Adult Sliced Turkey Entree In Savory Sauce is 3.0 out of 5.
