Ingredient Review

Our review of Almo Nature HQS Complete Mackerel with Sea Bream Grain-Free Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Mackerel. Mackerel is meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species. In pet food, mackerel serves as a source of protein, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

The second ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The third ingredient is Sea Bream. Sea bream is meat from the white-fleshed, mild-flavored sea bream fish. In pet food, sea bream can be a source of quality protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients

The fourth ingredient is Sunflower Oil. Sunflower oil is a type of culinary oil that is pressed from ripe sunflower seeds. In pet food, sunflower oil can be a good source of healthy fat, vitamin E, and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The fifth ingredient is Tapioca Starch. Tapioca starch comes from the cassava root. It is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates. Tapioca starch is typically added to grain-free and gluten-free pet foods.

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 Almo Nature HQS Complete Mackerel with Sea Bream Grain-Free Canned Cat Food.
