Beef

 

Ingredients

Beef, Water, Tricalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Choline Chloride , Guar Gum, Cassia Gum, Salt, Taurine, Magnesium Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Niacin Supplement (Vitamin B3), Vitamin E Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Ribofl¬avin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Biotin (Vitamin B7), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)

First 5 ingredients

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

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

Tricalcium Phosphate – A source of calcium and phosphorus. It is also an anti-caking agent.

Potassium Chloride – An additive used as a potassium supplement. Foods would be better without these additional supplements, as some are controversial.

Choline Chloride – An additive used as a choline supplement. A very common ingredient seen in cat food.

Ingredients to Point Out

Guar Gum - A less harmful thickening agent used in cat food. Still, interferes with protein absorption and is known to cause GI upset.

Cassia Gums - Used for its thickening properties and prevents particles from settling. Causes GI upset. Studies have shown it can be harmful at high doses.

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.
