We'll begin this review of Solid Gold Tropical Blendz With Chicken & Coconut Oil with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken, which provides animal-based protein and important omega-6 fatty acids.
The second ingredient is water sufficient for processing, which is a fairly self-explanatory ingredient.
The third ingredient is tuna. Although tuna is an excellent protein source, raw tuna contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of tuna 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 fourth ingredient is 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 fifth ingredient is dried egg product. Dried 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.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Solid Gold Tropical Blendz With Chicken & Coconut Oil 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 Solid Gold recipe.
Next we have coconut oil. Coconut oil is an excellent source of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) which are easier to digest and believed to promote skin and coat health.
The next ingredient is carrot. Carrots are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals.
Then we have pumpkin. Pumpkin is an excellent carbohydrate source, rich in dietary fiber and various minerals. It's also rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.
Moving on, 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 with this review, we have spinach. Spinach is a nutritionally dense dark green vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The next ingredient in this review is tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
Our next ingredient is calcium sulfate. Calcium sulfate is a food additive that helps control acidity levels and functions as a firming agent. It's not a desirable ingredient, but it is considered safe by the FDA in small quantities.
The remaining ingredients in this Solid Gold Tropical Blendz 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 Solid Gold Tropical Blendz With Chicken & Coconut Oil is 5.0 out of 5.
