Ingredient Review

Our review of Adirondack Limited Ingredient Whitefish & Lentils Recipe Grain-Free Indoor Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Whitefish. Deboned whitefish is boneless meat from a freshwater and saltwater fish species with light-colored flesh. In pet food, deboned whitefish is a source of protein and essential nutrients including Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The second ingredient is Menhaden Fish Meal. Menhaden fish meal is dried, ground tissue from menhaden fish. In pet food, menhaden fish meal serves as a source of protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to help keep your companion’s skin and coat healthy.

The third ingredient is Lentils. Lentils are legumes. In pet food, lentils are a source of protein, fiber, and nutrients including a number of essential vitamins and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.

The fifth ingredient is Fava Beans. Fava beans are large legumes that are also known as broad beans. In pet food, fava beans can be a source of plant-based protein, fiber, iron, and many other essential nutrients.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Adirondack Limited Ingredient Whitefish & Lentils Recipe Grain-Free Indoor Dry Cat Food.
