Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is salmon. Although salmon is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw salmon contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of salmon 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 pork broth. As with other broths, pork broth is a source of flavor and moisture.

The fourth ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.

The fifth ingredient is chicken liver. Chicken liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, chicken liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Kitten Minced Salmon 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 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 next ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which increases the food's moisture content.

Then we have natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.

Moving on, we have potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.

The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Kitten Minced 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.
