Grain Free – Classic Beef Recipe Premium Paté

 

Ingredients

Beef, water sufficient for processing, liver, fish, meat by-products, artificial and natural flavors, guar gum, added color, potassium chloride, tricalcium phosphate, salt, taurine, magnesium sulfate, mono and dicalcium phosphate, Vitamin E supplement, thiamine mononitrate, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, niacin, sodium nitrite (to promote color retention), calcium pantothenate, Vitamin A supplement, copper sulfate, manganese sulfate, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin, folic acid, Vitamin D-3 supplement, potassium iodide.

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%.

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.

Fish – This is the most vague term used for this ingredient. We have no idea what species of fish was used, or even what family this fish belongs to.

Meat By-Products – By-products from a vague source. 'Meat' doesn't indicate where the by-products originate.

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.

Meat – The term ‘meat’ can mean anything. Safe ingredients will name the source. Example, chicken meal vs meat meal. The first ingredient you know is coming from chicken. The second one, you have no idea. It could actually be cats and dogs. Some pet food manufacturers actually used to use euthanized pets for meat meal. This practice is not popular anymore because people found out what ‘meat’ meant. This was just an example of what ‘meat’ can mean.

By-Products – The clean parts of named animal other than the actual meat. This can include the brain, bone, blood, kidneys, clean intestines, clean stomach, and lungs. Basically anything from the slaughtered animal except the hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs.

Artifical Flavoring – Man-made chemicals that are usually sprayed onto the food to entice the cat to eat it.

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

Added Coloring – Sometimes known as artificial coloring. Certain colors, such as ‘Red #3’ are cancerous and are banned from uses in human products. Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide also fall into the added color category.

Sodium Nitrite – Used as a preservative. Ingesting nitrites could lead to the formation of nitrosamines. Most nitrosamines are cancerous. This is a risky ingredient.

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.

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.

The second one, you have no idea. It could actually be cats and dogs. Some pet food manufacturers actually used to use euthanized pets for meat meal.

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.

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

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.

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.

Meat – The term ‘meat’ can mean anything. Safe ingredients will name the source. Example, chicken meal vs meat meal. The first ingredient you know is coming from chicken. The second one, you have no idea. It could actually be cats and dogs. Some pet food manufacturers actually used to use euthanized pets for meat meal. This practice is not popular anymore because people found out what ‘meat’ meant. This was just an example of what ‘meat’ can mean.

By-Products – The clean parts of named animal other than the actual meat. This can include the brain, bone, blood, kidneys, clean intestines, clean stomach, and lungs. Basically anything from the slaughtered animal except the hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs.

Corn based ingredients – Corn, especially, is hard to digest and a source of allergies, and health problems. Corn starch, while not corn, is corn based and is an unneeded source of carbohydrates. Protein (corn gluten) from corn is not appropriate as cats are carnivores. Corn based ingredients should be avoided if possible.

Artifical Flavoring – Man-made chemicals that are usually sprayed onto the food to entice the cat to eat it.

Cellulose – This ingredient is a fiber source, often used as a carbohydrate substitute. It also has thickening properties. It is a filler and lower quality ingredient. Cellulose can actually come from wood. This is just an example, it doesn't mean wood chips are actually in this food.

Added Coloring – Sometimes known as artificial coloring. Certain colors, such as ‘Red #3’ are cancerous and are banned from uses in human products. Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide also fall into the added color category.

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.
