We'll begin this review of Petcurean Go! Fit + Free Grain Free Chicken, Turkey + Trout Stew For Cats 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 turkey broth. As with other broths, turkey broth is a source of flavor and moisture.
The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is turkey. Although turkey is an excellent protein source, raw turkey contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of turkey 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Petcurean Go! Fit + Free Grain Free Chicken, Turkey + Trout Stew For Cats 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 Petcurean recipe.
Next we have trout. Although trout is an excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source, raw trout contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of trout 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 next ingredient is dried egg whites. Dried egg whites consist of shell-free egg whites, 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.
Then we have pea. Peas are high-protein legumes which supply a healthy dose of dietary fiber and several important vitamins and minerals.
Moving on, we have carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
Moving on with this review, we have potato starch. Potato starch is a gluten-free ingredient extracted from potatoes. Unlike whole potatoes, the starch itself does not provide a notable amount of nutrition.
The next ingredient in this review is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Our next ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.
apple is the next ingredient in this recipe. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Next on the list is natural flavor, which enhances the flavor of the food.
The next ingredient in this recipe is 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.
Next we have red pepper. Red peppers are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The remaining ingredients in this Petcurean Go! Fit + Free 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.
