We'll begin this review of Nutro Adult Soft Loaf Duck Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is duck. Although duck is an excellent animal based protein source, raw duck contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of duck 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 broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.
The third ingredient is duck liver. Duck liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, duck 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 natural flavor. The sole purpose of natural flavor is to improve palatability.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Adult Soft Loaf 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 Nutro recipe.
Next we have 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.
The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Adult Soft Loaf 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.
The official PawDiet rating for Nutro Adult Soft Loaf Duck Recipe is 3.0 out of 5.
