Ingredients

Deboned chicken, chicken meal, dehydrated chicken liver, dried egg product, tapioca flour, ground whole flaxseed, whole chickpeas, whole peas, natural salmon flavor, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), brewer’s dried yeast, natural chicken flavor, calcium sulfate, choline chloride, chicory extract, salmon oil, taurine, pumpkin, iron sulfate, zinc sulfate, niacin supplement (vitamin B3), manganese sulfate, copper sulfate, vitamin A acetate, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), calcium D-pantothenate, riboflavin supplement (vitamin B2), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), biotin, vitamin B12 supplement, vitamin D3 supplement, calcium iodate, folic acid, sodium selenite, rosemary extract.

First 5 ingredients

Deboned Chicken - Meat, and skin without the 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.

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.

Dehydrated Chicken Liver -The liver of chickens are used in the formula, without the presence of moisture. Liver is an organ meat that is very nutritious.

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

Tapioca Flour – This is another name for tapioca starch. Tapioca starch is extracted from the cassava plant. It is a grain-free source of carbohydrates.

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.

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.'

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.

Legumes – This includes lentils, chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), soybeans, or any other bean. The growing trend is to include legumes in cat food labeled as grain free, which is similar to fruits and vegetables. Legumes provide bulk and a source of carbohydrates. It makes the food appear healthier as opposed to seeing grains however legumes are unnecessary. While for these reviews, peas are under the category of vegetables, peas are also considered a legume.

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.

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.
