Ingredient Review

Our review of Fromm Four Star Grain Free Turkey Duck Pate 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 Turkey Broth. Turkey broth is the liquid that remains after turkey has been cooked. In pet food, turkey broth adds moisture, flavor, and aroma, along with some nutrients.

The third ingredient is Turkey Liver. Turkey liver is a general term that can refer to fresh, frozen, cooked, or freeze dried liver from a turkey of any breed. The turkey liver in pet food is more than just a source of protein – it’s also a good source of vitamin A, copper, niacin, zinc, and other essential nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The fifth ingredient is Lentils. Lentils are legumes. In pet food, lentils are a source of protein, fiber, and nutrients including a number of essential vitamins and minerals.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Fromm Four Star Grain Free Turkey Duck Pate Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
