Ingredient Review

Our review of Fromm Gold Kitten Dry 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 Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.

The third ingredient is Pearled Barley. Pearled Barley is the cereal grain barley with its outer hull removed. In pet food, pearled barley serves as a source of carbohydrates. It is lower in nutrients than whole barley or barley groats.

The fourth ingredient is White Rice. White rice is a gluten-free cereal grain that has been processed to remove the high-fiber layer that gives rice its natural brown color. In pet food, white rice is a source of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The fifth ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Fromm Gold Kitten Dry Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
