Feline Beef

 

Ingredients

Beef, Beef Broth, Beef Liver, Sardines, Montmorillonite Clay, Porcine Plasma, Herring Oil (Preserved With Mixed Tocopherols), Egg Shell Meal, Brewers Dried Yeast, Dried Apple, Dried Apricot, Alfalfa Meal, Dried Artichoke, Dried Blueberry, Dried Broccoli, Dried Carrot, Dried Chicory, Dried Cranberry, Dried Kelp, Parsley, Dried Pumpkin, Rosemary, Dried Spinach, Dried Tomato, Rosemary Extract.

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.

Beef Broth – Used to add moisture to the formula. Different from water as broth has added nutrients and proteins. This broth is made from beef.

Beef Liver – An organ meat coming from bovines, usually cattle. Liver is very nutritious.

Sardines – Small fish that are closely related to herring.

Montmorillonite Clay -This is a clay named after where it was discovered. It is a natural ingredient that is an anti-caking agent.

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.

Montmorillonite Clay -There is not enough research and facts about this ingredient in cat food. Certain types of this clay may not be pure, or free from dioxins. Dioxins are harmful. The FDA recommends that this clay be tested before being used in cat foods. It is a recommendation however, not a requirement.

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.'

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.
