Ingredient Review

Our review of Iams Perfect Portions Healthy Kitten Chicken Recipe Pate Grain-Free Cat Food Trays 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 Dried Egg Product. Dried egg product can refer to dried or dehydrated egg white, yolk, or shells, or a combination of all three. The dried egg product found in pet food is a good source of healthy, easily digested protein.

The fifth ingredient is Guar Gum. Guar gum is a thickening agent that is derived from the guar bean. In pet food, guar gum helps food keep its shape and it doubles as a source of fiber. Since guar gum can slow digestion, it’s sometimes found in foods designed to help your pet lose weight.

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 Iams Perfect Portions Healthy Kitten Chicken Recipe Pate Grain-Free Cat Food Trays.
