Ingredients

Tuna Red Meat, Water Sufficient For Processing, Shirasu, Vegetable Gums (Locust Bean, Guar, Carrageenan), Sunflower Seed Oil, Dicalcium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Nicotinic Acid (Vitamin B3), Ferrous Sulfate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Source of Vitamin K), Vitamin B12 Supplement.

First 5 ingredients

Tuna – A species of fish. Tuna is a great protein source.

Water - Used to add moisture to the formula. In canned foods, moisture percentage can be up to 80%.

Shirasu – Boiled and dried baby anchovies.

Locust Bean Gum – A thickening agent found in cat foods. It is not as popular as carrageenan or guar gum yet not rare.

Guar Gum – A thickening agent very popular in cat foods.

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.

Locust Bean Gum - A self gelling thickening agent. Combines with other thickening agents to produce desired effects.

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

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.

Ingredients

Chicken (Boneless, Skinless, White Breast), Water Sufficient For Processing, Pumpkin, Carrot, Pea, Potato Starch, Sunflower Seed Oil, Dicalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Nicotinic Acid (Vitamin B3), Ferrous Sulfate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

First 5 ingredients

Boneless Chicken – This is the breast of the chicken, without the skin and bones.

Water - Used to add moisture to the formula. In canned foods, moisture percentage can be up to 80%.

Pumpkin - Pumpkin has added benefits and is a souce of fiber. While it is nutritious, it is not necessary.

Carrots – Carrots help maintain healthy skin and digestive system. For people, it is a good source of beta-carotene. Cats cannot convert that, therefore the main benefit of carrots cannot be experienced by the cat.

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

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.

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.

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.

*Wild Caught & Dolphin Safe Light Meat Kawakawa Tuna

First 5 ingredients

Tuna -This tuna is specified as being wild caught & dolphin safe light meat kawakawa tuna.

Water - Used to add moisture to the formula. In canned foods, moisture percentage can be up to 80%.

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.

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.

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.
