We'll begin this review of Whole Earth Farms Grain Free Canned Real Chicken & Turkey Recipe Morsels In Gravy with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is chicken. 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.
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 turkey. Turkey is another excellent protein source. As with other raw meats, turkey contains a substantial amount of moisture and therefore the relative meat contribution of turkey is dramatically reduced after cooking.
The fifth ingredient is turkey liver. Turkey liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, turkey liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Whole Earth Farms Grain Free Canned Real Chicken & Turkey Recipe Morsels In Gravy 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 Whole Earth Farms recipe.
Next we have 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.
The next 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.
Then we have natural flavor, which is used to enhance the flavor of the food.
Moving on, 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.
Moving on with this review, we have dried pea. Dried peas are an excellent carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and protein.
The next ingredient in this review is potato protein. Potato protein is produced by extracting the starch of potatoes. This process results in a high protein and low ash ingredient called potato protein.
Our next ingredient is 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.
sodium phosphate is the next ingredient in this recipe. Sodium phosphate is a generic term used for salts of sodium and phosphate. It is most likely used as a emulsifier, thickening agent, or leavening agent.
Next on the list is choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).
The remaining ingredients in this Whole Earth Farms Grain Free Canned 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.
