Ingredient Review

Our review of Diamond Naturals Chicken Dinner Adult & Kitten Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The second ingredient is Chicken Broth. Chicken broth is made by boiling chicken meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, chicken broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The third ingredient is Chicken Liver. Chicken liver is one of a few organ meats that come from a chicken. In pet food, chicken liver serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids.

The fourth ingredient is Brown Rice Flour. Brown rice flour is ground dried rice kernels with the nutritious bran still attached. The brown rice flour in pet food is a source of carbohydrates and fiber. It can also be a thickening and texturizing agent.

The fifth ingredient is Carrots. In pet food, carrots serve as a source of easily digested carbohydrate and fiber. Carrots contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help support your pet’s health.

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 Naturals Chicken Dinner Adult & Kitten Canned Cat Food.
