Chicken and Vegetables

 

Ingredients

Boneless Chicken, Water Sufficient For Processing, Carrot, Potato, Tapioca Starch, Green Pea, Sunflower Seed Oil, Tricalcium Phosphate, Locust Bean Gum, Calcium Lactate, Chicken Broth, Salt, Fructooligosaccharide, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Source of Vitamin B1), Nicotinic Acid (Source of Vitamin B3), Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement (Source of Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Source of Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

First 5 ingredients

Deboned Chicken - Meat, and skin without the bone of chicken. About 70% moisture therefore is always seen near the top of ingredients lists. After cooking, the chicken loses most of its moisture as well as protein.

Water - Used to add moisture to the formula. In canned foods, moisture percentage can be up to 80%.

Carrots – Carrots help maintain healthy skin and digestive system. For people, it is a good source of beta-carotene. Cats cannot convert that, therefore the main benefit of carrots cannot be experienced by the cat.

Potatoes - A grain-less carbohydrate. Often used in grain free formulas because they are easier to digest than grains. Also used as a bulking agent. An overall filler ingredient.

Tapioca Starch – The starch of the cassava plant, grounded into a powder. Used as a starch source, a substitute for carbohydrates as well as a bulking agent.

Ingredients to Point Out

Vegetables - Vegetables are normally used as a binder and carbohydrate substitute. A grain free cat food could still have a high amount of carbohydrates. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, peas, etc., while not grains, still contain carbohydrates.

Starch – This includes pea, potato, tapioca starch (flour). Starch is a type of carbohydrate. Cats need carbohydrates, but only very little. The addition of these extra carbohydrate sources make the % much higher than what a cat needs. Cats are not equipped to digest high amounts of carbs. These types of ingredients are mainly in cat food because they are great binders, they bind the food together effectively.

Locust Bean Gum - A self gelling thickening agent. Combines with other thickening agents to produce desired effects.

Copper Sulfate – Is an irritant and is linked to copper toxicity. Many do not like the presence of this ingredient in cat food because it has many other uses. It can be found in the leather, wood, battery, ink, paint, and metal industries.

Polysaccharide Gum – Using this vague term is worse off than naming the actual gum used in the formula. By being vague, you are left to guess exactly what gum is used in the formula, without contacting the company. If your cat has an allergy or sensitivity to a particular gum, than it is safer to avoid this food altogether because the nature of the gum is unknown. Because of this, the food gets a lower rating.

First 5 ingredients

Chicken – Meat, skin, and bone of chicken. About 70% moisture therefore is always seen near the top of ingredients lists. After cooking, the chicken loses most of its moisture as well as protein. A common ingredient found in cat food.

Chicken Meal - The dried rendered skin, meat, and bone of chicken. This excludes the head, feet, and intestines. If the ingredients list states ‘boneless’ than the meal is skin and meat without the bone. A more concentration source of protein.

Peas – Used as a protein source and bulking agent. Peas high on an ingredient list indicate that a lot of peas are in the formula.

Turkey Meal - The dried rendered skin, meat, and bone of turkey. This excludes the head, feet, and intestines. If the ingredients list states ‘boneless’ than the meal is skin and meat without the bone. A more concentration source of protein.

Pea Flour – Flour that has been made from dried split peas. A healthier alternative to wheat flour or rice flour.

Ingredients to Point Out

Meals – Meals are a concentrated source of protein, more so than actual meat like chicken, turkey, etc. Sometimes up to 50% more protein. The concern with meals over regular meat is that meals can legally contain the ‘4Ds.’ This means dead, diseased, dying, and disabled animals.

Vegetables - Vegetables are normally used as a binder and carbohydrate substitute. A grain free cat food could still have a high amount of carbohydrates. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, peas, etc., while not grains, still contain carbohydrates.

Starch – This includes pea, potato, tapioca starch (flour). Starch is a type of carbohydrate. Cats need carbohydrates, but only very little. The addition of these extra carbohydrate sources make the % much higher than what a cat needs. Cats are not equipped to digest high amounts of carbs. These types of ingredients are mainly in cat food because they are great binders, they bind the food together effectively.

Legumes – This includes lentils, chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), soybeans, or any other bean. The growing trend is to include legumes in cat food labeled as grain free, which is similar to fruits and vegetables. Legumes provide bulk and a source of carbohydrates. It makes the food appear healthier as opposed to seeing grains however legumes are unnecessary. While for these reviews, peas are under the category of vegetables, peas are also considered a legume.

Blueberries – A great fruit that is high in antioxidants. In cat food to make the food appear healthier. Cats don’t have a need for blueberries. It’s just as likely they won’t provide any benefits.

Sodium Selenite - Many cat owners are concerned about this ingredient. It is a cheaper form of selenium and is linked with selenium toxicity. This is because ingredients such as fish, meat, and grains already contain selenium naturally. Therefore the addition of sodium selenite just adds more selenium to the formula. For what it is worth, a study has shown sodium selenite is no more harmful than natural sources of selenium.

Salmon

 

Ingredients

Salmon, salmon meal, peas, pea flour, chickpeas, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), catfish meal, natural flavors, whitefish meal, flax seeds, chicken meal, alfalfa meal, calcium carbonate, kelp meal, choline chloride, salt, fructooligosaccharide, minerals (iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, manganese proteinate, cobalt proteinate), potassium chloride, taurine, DL methionine, blueberries, cranberries, vitamins (vitamin A acetate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, niacin, d-calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12 supplement), lactic acid, calcium iodate, sodium selenite, rosemary extract.

First 5 ingredients

Salmon – A species of fish. Salmon is very popular in the fishing industry. It provides protein and may have elevated levels of mercury. Concerns about the quality of fish used in pet foods.

Salmon Meal - The dried rendered meat of the salmon. This is a more concentrated form of protein, as opposed to just salmon.

Peas – Used as a protein source and bulking agent. Peas high on an ingredient list indicate that a lot of peas are in the formula.

Pea Flour – Flour that has been made from dried split peas. A healthier alternative to wheat flour or rice flour.

Chickpeas – This is a legume. Chickpeas are not harmful and they are actually high in protein. They do add unnecessary carbohydrates however.

Ingredients to Point Out

Fish/Seafood - Fish have elevated levels of mercury. Feeding a cat fish every now and then is okay. Long term exposure to fish will cause health problems. Also, the majority of the time fish used for pet food is rank and of poor quality. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption'. This applies to seafood as well.
