Ingredient Review

Our review of Iams Perfect Portions Indoor Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Cuts in Gravy Wet Cat Food Trays begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second 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 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 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 fifth ingredient is Tapioca Starch. Tapioca starch comes from the cassava root. It is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates. Tapioca starch is typically added to grain-free and gluten-free pet foods.

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 Indoor Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Cuts in Gravy Wet Cat Food Trays.
