We'll begin this review of Petcurean Go! Sensitivity + Shine Limited Ingredient Duck Recipe For Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is duck. Although duck is an excellent animal based protein source, raw duck contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of duck 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 duck meal. Duck meal is produced by cooking duck using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of duck and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.
The third ingredient is dried whole egg. Dried whole eggs 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 fourth ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is pea flour. Pea flour is made from roasted peas which have been processed into a powder. It's naturally rich in protein and dietary fiber.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Petcurean Go! Sensitivity + Shine Limited Ingredient Duck Recipe 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 tapioca. Tapioca 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 lentil. Lentils are rich in diary fiber, B vitamins, and minerals. Lentils also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.
Then we have chickpea. Chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
Moving on, we have chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fat is an important part of your cats diet, chicken fat in particular is an outstanding source of omega-6 fatty acids.
Moving on with this review, we have 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.
The next ingredient in this review is natural flavor, which is likely included to improve palatability.
Our next ingredient is sodium chloride. Sodium chloride (or salt) is an important mineral for both humans and cats. Depending on the quantity of sodium chloride used (which we cannot determine), sodium chloride may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.
choline chloride is the next ingredient in this recipe. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
Next on the list 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.
The remaining ingredients in this Petcurean Go! Sensitivity + Shine 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.
