We'll begin this review of Nutro Kitten Soft Loaf Chicken Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first 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 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 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 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 Kitten Soft Loaf Chicken 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 guar gum. Guar gum (or guaran) is obtained from guar beans which have been dehusked, milled and screened. It's commonly used in wet food products as a thickening agent and provides a notable amount of dietary fiber.
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 potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
Moving on, we have ferrous sulfate, which is an iron supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Kitten 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.
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 Kitten Soft Loaf Chicken Recipe is 3.0 out of 5.
