Ingredient Review

Our review of Fancy Feast Flaked Chicken & Tuna Feast Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Poultry Broth. Poultry broth is made by boiling meat, skin, and bones from poultry such as chicken and turkey to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, poultry broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The second ingredient is Fish. Fish is a general term for meat from freshwater and saltwater fish. In pet food, fish serves as a source of protein. It can double as a source of other nutrients including omega essential fatty acids.

The third 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 fourth ingredient is Tuna. Tuna is a general name for one of several saltwater fish species. In pet food, tuna is generally used as a protein source.

The fifth ingredient is Liver. Liver is a general name for a protein-rich organ meat from any animal. The liver in pet food can be a source of important minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and selenium, but depending on its source, can be of low quality.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Fancy Feast Flaked Chicken & Tuna Feast Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from fish based sources.
