Ingredient Review

Our review of KASIKS Cage-Free Turkey Formula Grain-Free Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Boneless Turkey. Boneless turkey is turkey meat with the bones removed. In pet food, boneless turkey is a valuable source of protein, amino acids, and many other nutrients to support your four-legged friend’s overall wellbeing.

The second ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The third ingredient is Pea Starch. Pea starch is a gluten-free starch that comes from ground peas. The pea starch in pet food is a source of carbohydrates, and is typically used as a thickener, filler, or gelling agent.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Sodium Chloride. Sodium chloride is an ionic compound we usually refer to as salt or table salt. In pet food, sodium chloride may be used as a flavor enhancer; it also has a natural preservative effect.

When we analyzed the ingredients in KASIKS Cage-Free Turkey Formula Grain-Free Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
