Our review of Iams Proactive Health Sensitive Digestion & Skin Turkey Dry 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 Chicken By-Product Meal. In pet food, chicken by-product meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken by-product meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken parts that might not be used for human consumption including necks, feet, entrails, and undeveloped eggs.
The third ingredient is Ground Whole Grain Corn. Ground whole grain corn is made with cooked and/or dried kernels from any corn species. In pet food, ground whole grain corn can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.
The fourth ingredient is Brewers Rice. Brewers rice is a byproduct of the beer industry. The brewers rice in pet food has been dried and ground for use as a carbohydrate source, often in gluten-free recipes.
The fifth 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.
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 Proactive Health Sensitive Digestion & Skin Turkey Dry Cat Food.
