Ingredient Review

Our review of Fancy Feast Kitten Tender Turkey Feast Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

The second 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.

The third ingredient is Meat By-Products. The meat by-products in pet food may be organs such as liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and more, as well as meat left over from butchering. While meat by-products include offal that isn’t meant for human consumption, it may not contain hooves, horns, teeth, or animal hides.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Milk. Milk is defined as the secretions of a mammal’s mammary glands. In most applications, the simple term “milk” refers to milk from a cow. In pet food, milk can be a source of protein, fat, and many other nutrients including calcium for strong teeth and bones.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Fancy Feast Kitten Tender Turkey Feast Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
