Ingredient Analysis

When evaluating a cat food, the first five ingredients can tell you a lot about the quality of a product as they make up the bulk of the product. Ideally, you're looking for quality protein sources with a minimum of cheap starches, fillers or by-products. Continuing down the ingredient list, look for ingredients that resemble real food with a minimal number of unpronounceable chemicals - the same as you would for human food.

Kiwi Kitchens Lamb Dinner includes the following:

Quality Ingredients

  • lamb
  • lamb liver
  • lamb tripe
  • lamb lung
  • lamb kidney

Questionable Ingredients

  • guar gum

Potential Allergens

  • lamb
  • lamb broth
  • lamb liver
  • lamb tripe
  • lamb lung
  • lamb kidney
  • fish oil
  • fish oil

Note - a bolded ingredient in the above tables indicates it is one of the first five ingredients listed by the product manufacturer.

In this case, Kiwi Kitchens Lamb Dinner's most plentiful ingredient listed is lamb, which is considered a quality protein source. It also contains lamb liver, lamb tripe and lamb lung as additional quality protein sources.

Additionally, it's worth noting that this product does not list either by-products nor bulk-adding fillers within its top ingredients. By-products are considered inferior, lesser quality ingredients. Common fillers typically used to add bulk to the product are not required in your cat's diet. Together, their combined absence may be indicative of a higher quality product.

Please also be aware that this product contains guar gum, which is an additive that some experts claim may be a possible contributor to certain medical conditions in cats.

Allergen alert: This product contains lamb, lamb broth, lamb liver, lamb tripe, lamb lung, lamb kidney and fish oil which may be problematic for cats who suffer from lamb or seafood food allergies.

*Note that some nutritional percentages reported are only estimated values, and are indicated as such as (est). Each cat food manufacturer is required by law to publish a Guaranteed Analysis, which defines each product's maximum values of fiber, moisture and ash in addition to the minimum values of protein and fat contained within. Exact nutritional percentages are not available and hence all calculated values (including carbohydrate percentages and calorie amounts) are determined using these minimum and maximum published values and therefore may differ from actual values.

Although a high score may be indicative of a higher-quality product it is not a guarantee. Similarly, a low score may or may not indicate an inferior product. The best food for your cat is the one that meets their individual needs.
