We'll begin this review of Nutro Senior Minced Cod & Tuna 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 cod. Although cod is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw cod contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of cod 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 chicken. Chicken is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, chicken contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth 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.
The fifth ingredient is tuna. Tuna is another outstanding protein source. Tuna also contains all of the necessary essential amino acids required by cats.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Nutro Senior Minced Cod & Tuna 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 pork broth. As with other broths, pork broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
Then we have natural flavor. Although natural flavor does not provide any nutritional value, it does improve palatability.
Moving on, we have potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.
The remaining ingredients in this Nutro Senior 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.
