Natural Chicken Recipe In Broth

 

Ingredients

Chicken, chicken broth, sunflower seed oil, spinach, calcium lactate, tricalcium phosphate, guar gum, xanthan gum, choline chloride, salt, potassium chloride, taurine, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, thiamine mononitrate, magnesium sulfate, niacin, Vitamin E supplement, calcium pantothenate, Vitamin A supplement, manganese sulfate, copper sulfate, Vitamin D-3 supplement, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, potassium iodide, folic acid, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), biotin, Vitamin B-12 supplement.

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

Sunflower Seed Oil – Oil from sunflower seeds. It contains a large content of Omega-6 fatty acids.

Spinach – An edible leafy green, usually cooked as a vegetable.

Calcium Lactate – A powder that is added to foods as a calcium supplement.

Ingredients to Point Out

Spinach – Spinach contains a rather high amount of calcium oxalates, which aids in the formation of urinary crystals. If your cat has a history of urinary crystals, it is better to play it safe and avoid foods with spinach present.

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

Xanthan Gum - Produced naturally with help by artifical means. Can be an alternative to gluten and is usually in cat foods as a thickening agent.

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.

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex/Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite – A man-made form of Vitamin K. There are concerns over toxicity relating to this ingredient in cat food.

First 5 ingredients

Poultry Broth - Broth has added nutrients compared to water. This broth is made from poultry. Poultry is a vague term, but usually it means chicken, turkey, duck, or geese.

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.

Liver – An organ meat that is packed full of nutrients. Rich in Vitamin A. A good quality ingredient, yet intake has to be monitored. A vague term as we don't know the source of the liver.

Wheat Gluten – Gluten that has been extracted from wheat. A plant based protein, so mostly nutritionally useless in cat food.

Natural Flavor - Added flavor to the food to make it more palatable. This natural flavor can be obtained from anything that is not man made to give the food the flavor. This means obtaining the flavor from less than desirable ingredients, such as by-products.

Ingredients to Point Out

Gluten – Gluten is the protein that is found in many different types of grains, including wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is a protein source. Cats simply cannot digest gluten and use it effectively in their bodies. They need protein from a meat source.

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.

Xanthan Gum - Produced naturally with help by artifical means. Can be an alternative to gluten and is usually in cat foods as a thickening agent.

Carrageenan - Most commonly used as a gelling and thickening agent in cat foods. Non-food grade carrageenan is cancerous. Food grade carrageenan causes GI issues. This is because the food grade carrageenan contains small amounts of pro-inflammatory particles. A highly controversial ingredient as much fear that even the food grade carrageenan will eventually lead to cancer (this has not been proven though).

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.

Fish Broth – Used to add moisture to the formula. Different from water as broth has added nutrients and proteins. Broth made from fish may have elevated levels of mercury compared to chicken broth.

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.

Liver – An organ meat that is packed full of nutrients. Rich in Vitamin A. A good quality ingredient, yet intake has to be monitored. A vague term as we don't know the source of the liver.

Wheat Gluten – Gluten that has been extracted from wheat. A plant based protein, so mostly nutritionally useless in cat food.

Tomatoes – The actual tomato for cats is OK to eat in small amounts, but the leaves and stems are poisonous for them.

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.

Gluten – Gluten is the protein that is found in many different types of grains, including wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is a protein source. Cats simply cannot digest gluten and use it effectively in their bodies. They need protein from a meat source.

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.

Xanthan Gum - Produced naturally with help by artifical means. Can be an alternative to gluten and is usually in cat foods as a thickening agent.

Carrageenan - Most commonly used as a gelling and thickening agent in cat foods. Non-food grade carrageenan is cancerous. Food grade carrageenan causes GI issues. This is because the food grade carrageenan contains small amounts of pro-inflammatory particles. A highly controversial ingredient as much fear that even the food grade carrageenan will eventually lead to cancer (this has not been proven though).

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.

Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex/Menadione Dimethylpyrimidinol Bisulfite – A man-made form of Vitamin K. There are concerns over toxicity relating to this ingredient in cat food.
