Ingredients

Chicken Broth, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Poultry By-Products, Meat By-Products, Tapioca Starch, Natural Flavour, Vitamins And Minerals, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Colour, Fish Oil (Preserved With Mixed Tocopherols), Salt, Xanthan Gum, Taurine, Dl-Methionine.

First 5 ingredients

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.

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 Liver – It is an organ meat that has many nutrients. Toxicity due to eating too much liver is a possibility, therefore intake has to be monitored. Present in cat food in safe amounts.

Poultry By Products - The by-products of poultry. Poultry usually refers to chicken, duck, turkey, or geese.

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

Ingredients to Point Out

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.

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.

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.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate – This is an inorganic (meaning man made) ingredient mainly used as a preservative. This ingredient is used in other products, such as laundry detergent. It’s an artificial preservative that does not belong in cat 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.

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.

Ingredients

Chicken Broth, Whitefish, Chicken, Tuna, Chicken Liver, Poultry By-Products, Meat By-Products, Colour, Vitamins And Minerals, Guar Gum, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Fish Oil (Preserved With Mixed Tocopherols), Dl-Methionine, Salt, Taurine.

First 5 ingredients

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.

Whitefish – Whitefish is a vague term for fish. It can mean cod, haddock, sole or others. Whitefish is less fattening than other fish.

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.

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

Chicken Liver – It is an organ meat that has many nutrients. Toxicity due to eating too much liver is a possibility, therefore intake has to be monitored. Present in cat food in safe amounts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Sodium Tripolyphosphate – This is an inorganic (meaning man made) ingredient mainly used as a preservative. This ingredient is used in other products, such as laundry detergent. It’s an artificial preservative that does not belong in cat food.

Meat By-Products, Poultry By-Products, Chicken, Natural Flavour, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Dried Yam, Carrageenan, Minerals & Vitamins, Colour, Xanthan Gum, Dl-Methionine, Taurine, Sodium Nitrite (For Colour Retention), Sufficient Water For Processing.

First 5 ingredients

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

Poultry By Products - The by-products of poultry. Poultry usually refers to chicken, duck, turkey, 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.

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.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate – This is a type of salt that usually comes in powder form.

Ingredients to Point Out

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.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate – This is an inorganic (meaning man made) ingredient mainly used as a preservative. This ingredient is used in other products, such as laundry detergent. It’s an artificial preservative that does not belong in cat food.

Dried Yam – A carbohydrate source as well as fiber source. These yams have been dehydrated before being added to the formula. An overall unnecessary ingredient.

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).

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.

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.

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