We'll begin this review of Only Natural Pet Feline PowerFood Kitten Power Dinner 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 turkey meal. Turkey meal is produced by cooking turkey using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of turkey and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The third ingredient is chicken meal. Chicken meal is produced by a process called rendering. In short, the rendering process involves cooking chicken until the moisture level falls below 10%. By removing the moisture, we're left with a concentrated protein powder made with chicken (i.e. chicken meal).
The fourth ingredient is garbanzo bean. Garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
The fifth ingredient is chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), which is an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Only Natural Pet Feline PowerFood Kitten Power Dinner 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 Only Natural Pet recipe.
Next we have tapioca starch. Tapioca starch is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.
The next ingredient is salmon meal. Salmon meal is produced by cooking salmon using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of salmon and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
Then we have field pea. Field peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
Moving on, we have whitefish meal. Whitefish meal is produced by cooking whitefish using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of whitefish and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
Moving on with this review, we have pea protein. Pea protein is produced by removing the starchy parts of peas. Pea protein is considered controversial because it provides a substantial plant based protein boost. This boost is undesirable because plant based protein is typically lower in biological value when compared to meat based proteins.
The next ingredient in this review is lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
Our next ingredient is natural flavor. Natural flavor is used to modify the foods flavor and increase palatability.
salmon oil is the next ingredient in this recipe. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a cat diet.
Next on the list is pea fiber. Pea fiber is a concentrated dietary fiber source. Fiber can help stabilize blood sugar levels and promote colon health.
The next ingredient in this recipe is flaxseed. Flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.
Next we have sunflower oil. Sunflower oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), sunflower oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source.
The next ingredient is potassium chloride, which is a potassium supplement.
Then we have salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and cats. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
Moving on, we have taurine, which is an amino acid. As with other amino acids, taurine is required for the proper functioning of the body.
Moving on with this review, we have vitamin E supplement. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin required by cats.
The next ingredient in this review is calcium pantothenate, which is a vitamin B5 supplement.
Our next ingredient is niacin supplement. Niacin is also known as vitamin B3. It's an essential vitamin that is critical for the metabolism of nutrients and the well-being of the central nervous and GI systems.
vitamin A supplement is the next ingredient in this recipe. Vitamin A is another essential vitamin.
Next on the list is riboflavin supplement. Riboflavin is also known as vitamin B2, it's and essential vitamin required by cats.
The next ingredient in this recipe is vitamin D3 supplement. Vitamin D3 is another essential vitamin.
Next we have vitamin B12 supplement. Vitamin B12 is another essential vitamin.
The remaining ingredients in this Only Natural Pet Feline PowerFood 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 Only Natural Pet Feline PowerFood Kitten Power Dinner is 5.0 out of 5.
