First 5 ingredients

Chicken Broth - Used to add moisture to the formula. Different from water as broth has added nutrients and proteins. This broth is made from chicken.

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 Liver – It is an organ meat that has many nutrients. Toxicity due to eating too much liver is a possibility, therefore intake has to be monitored. Present in cat food in safe amounts.

Ocean Fish – A vague term for fish. Fish is an animal protein source. There are concerns about the quality of fish used to make pet food. Usually it is waste of the fishing industry.

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.

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.

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.

Agar Agar – A jelly like substance extracted from different kinds of seaweed. It is similar to carrageenan. It doesn’t have the controversy attached yet it is a ingredient that is not ideal.
 
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.

 
Egg/Egg product – The biggest concern regarding egg ingredients is the quality of eggs used in pet food formulas. Usually it is egg waste. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption.'

Sodium Tripolyphosphate – This is an inorganic (meaning man made) ingredient mainly used as a preservative. This ingredient is used in other products, such as laundry detergent. It’s an artificial preservative that does not belong in cat food.

Calcium Sulfate – A common industrial chemical. It is a cheaper form of calcium.

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.

Adult Chicken Recipe

 

Ingredients

Chicken, Chicken Meal, Whole Ground Brown Rice, Whole Ground Barley, Chicken Liver, Pea Fiber, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid), Brewers Dried Yeast, Natural Chicken Flavor, Dried Egg Product, Organic Soybean Oil (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid), Clams, Pumpkin, Apples, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Spinach, Blueberries, Dried Cranberries, Whole Ground Flaxseed, Calcium Sulfate, Olive Oil, Salmon Oil,Salt, Potassium Chloride, New Zealand Green Mussels, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Dried Kelp, Inulin, Vitamin E Supplement, L-Ascorbyl- 2-Polyphosphate (a source of Vitamin C), Ferrous Sulfate, DL-Methionine, Zinc Oxide, Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Niacin, Potassium Chloride, Copper Proteinate, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Vitamin A Supplement, Sodium Selenite, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Solubles, Dried Lactobacillus Lactis Fermentation Solubles, Dried Lactobacillus Casei, Fermentation Solubles, Thiamine Mononitrate, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Rosemary Extract.

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.

Brown Rice - Hulled, whole grain rice. It is considered healthier than white rice and corn. Brown rice is still hard for a cat digest. Still considered a filler ingredient.

Whole Ground Barley – Barley that has been finely ground. A healthier alternative to other grains.

Chicken Liver – It is an organ meat that has many nutrients. Toxicity due to eating too much liver is a possibility, therefore intake has to be monitored. Present in cat food in safe amounts.

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.

Whole Grains – Whole grains are considered healthier than grain. They are easier for a cat to digest. That being said, they are still a grain. Grains are not needed in a cat’s diet. Therefore, even though they are healthier they are still not needed in cat food. It is still a filler ingredient.

Grains – Grains are of poor nutritonal value for cats. Cats cannot digest grains easily. They are in cat foods as a filler ingredient and filler only. Wheat, corn, corn flour, flour, white rice, ground rice, barley, brewer's rice, etc. fall into this category. Ingredients such as wheat gluten and corn gluten also fall into this category as these ingredients originate from grains.

Fiber – The jury is still out as to whether ingredients like pea and potato fiber, beet pulp (which doesn't contain the sugar) are bad or good. They are bolded here just to quickly point out both sides of the story. On one hand, the argument can be made that these are cheap fiber sources that do more harm than good. On the other hand, fiber (both insoluble and soluble, fermentable and non-fermentable) has many benefits that shouldn't be overlooked. Too much of one type of fiber is where problems may occur. Each cat reacts differently.

Egg/Egg product – The biggest concern regarding egg ingredients is the quality of eggs used in pet food formulas. Usually it is egg waste. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption.'

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.

Fruits - Fruits are added to make the food appear healthier. While ingredients such as blueberries, apples, bananas, etc. look good in cat food the truth is they are unnecessary. It is just as likely they won't provide any additonal benefits..

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.

Calcium Sulfate – A common industrial chemical. It is a cheaper form of calcium.

Zinc Oxide – Artificially produced source of zinc more often seen in non-food materials. This includes rubber, paints, creams, and batteries. Poisoning due to ingesting too much zinc oxide will occur; present in cat food in safe amounts. Many people don't like to see this ingredient in cat food.

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.

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.

Duck Recipe

 

Ingredients

Duck, Duck Meal, Pork Liver, Whole Dried Green Peas, Dried Egg Product, Pea Fiber, Tapioca Flour, Turkey Meal, Sweet Potatoes, Brewers Dried Yeast, Organic Soybean Oil (Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid), Natural Yeast Flavor, Olive Oil, Salmon Oil, Carrots, Apples, Clams, Garlic, Blueberries, Pumpkin, Spinach, Sea Salt, Calcium Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Niacin, Vitamin E Supplement, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Manganese Oxide, Dicalcium Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Dried Kelp, Yucca schidigera, Inulin, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Solubles, Dried Lactobacillus lactis Fermentation Solubles, Dried lactobacillus casei Fermentation Solubles, Vitamin A Supplement, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Rosemary Extract

First 5 ingredients

Duck – Meat, skin, and bone of duck. About 70% moisture therefore is always seen near the top of ingredients lists. After cooking, the duck loses most of its moisture as well as protein. Despite this, a good quality protein source.

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

Pork Liver – An organ meat coming from pigs. Liver is very nutritious.

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.

Dried Egg – Egg or egg product that has had the moisture removed.

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.

Egg/Egg product – The biggest concern regarding egg ingredients is the quality of eggs used in pet food formulas. Usually it is egg waste. Unless otherwise stated by the company as 'food fit for human consumption.'

Fiber – The jury is still out as to whether ingredients like pea and potato fiber, beet pulp (which doesn't contain the sugar) are bad or good. They are bolded here just to quickly point out both sides of the story. On one hand, the argument can be made that these are cheap fiber sources that do more harm than good. On the other hand, fiber (both insoluble and soluble, fermentable and non-fermentable) has many benefits that shouldn't be overlooked. Too much of one type of fiber is where problems may occur. Each cat reacts differently.

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.

Fruits - Fruits are added to make the food appear healthier. While ingredients such as blueberries, apples, bananas, etc. look good in cat food the truth is they are unnecessary. It is just as likely they won't provide any additonal benefits..

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.

Calcium Sulfate – A common industrial chemical. It is a cheaper form of calcium.

Zinc Oxide – Artificially produced source of zinc more often seen in non-food materials. This includes rubber, paints, creams, and batteries. Poisoning due to ingesting too much zinc oxide will occur; present in cat food in safe amounts. Many people don't like to see this ingredient in cat food.

Brown Rice - Hulled, whole grain rice. It is considered healthier than white rice and corn. Brown rice is still hard for a cat digest. Still considered a filler ingredient.

Whole Ground Barley – Barley that has been finely ground. A healthier alternative to other grains.

Chicken Liver – It is an organ meat that has many nutrients. Toxicity due to eating too much liver is a possibility, therefore intake has to be monitored. Present in cat food in safe amounts.

Grains – Grains are of poor nutritonal value for cats. Cats cannot digest grains easily. They are in cat foods as a filler ingredient and filler only. Wheat, corn, corn flour, flour, white rice, ground rice, barley, brewer's rice, etc. fall into this category. Ingredients such as wheat gluten and corn gluten also fall into this category as these ingredients originate from grains.
