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.

Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings With Whitefish & Goat Milk includes the following:

Quality Ingredients

  • whitefish
  • tuna

Questionable Ingredients

  • modified tapioca starch
  • guar gum

Potential Allergens

  • whitefish
  • tuna
  • goat milk

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

Although not the first product listed (which is the most plentiful), Solid Gold Purrfect Pairings With Whitefish & Goat Milk does contain with its top ingredients whitefish and tuna which are considered 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 whitefish, tuna and goat milk which may be problematic for cats who suffer from seafood or dairy 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.
