Since 2009 Diamond has never been recalled.
Our review of Diamond Maintenance Formula Adult Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Chicken By-Product Meal. In pet food, chicken by-product meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken by-product meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken parts that might not be used for human consumption including necks, feet, entrails, and undeveloped eggs.
The second ingredient is Whole Grain Ground Corn. Whole grain ground corn is made with cooked kernels from any corn variety, ground into a textured flour or meal. In pet food, whole grain ground corn can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.
The third ingredient is Wheat Flour. Wheat flour is finely ground wheat, sometimes enriched with vitamins. In pet food, wheat flour serves as a binding and bulking agent. It is also a source of fiber and carbohydrates.
The fourth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.
The fifth ingredient is Mixed Tocopherols. Mixed tocopherols are a form of vitamin E. These antioxidants are used as a natural preservative. In pet food, mixed tocopherols help to prevent spoilage and oxidization.
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 Diamond Maintenance Formula Adult Dry Cat Food.
