We'll begin this review of Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets Chicken & Salmon Formula For Cats with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken (ground with bone). Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground chicken bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.
The second 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 third ingredient is salmon. Salmon is another excellent protein and omega-3 fatty acid source. As with other raw meats, salmon contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of salmon is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fourth ingredient is organic kale. Organic kale is a nutritionally dense dark green vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Kale also contains sulforaphane, a compound believed to have anti-cancer properties.
The fifth ingredient is organic squash. Organic squash is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets Chicken & Salmon Formula 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 Primal recipe.
Next we have organic carrot. Organic carrots are an excellent source dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.
The next ingredient is organic apple. Organic apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
Then we have organic pumpkin seeds. Organic pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Pumpkin seeds also provide a notable amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Moving on, we have organic sunflower seed, which are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
The remaining ingredients in this Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets 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.
