Our review of Kit & Kaboodle Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Ground Yellow Corn. Ground yellow corn is made with cooked kernels from yellow corn species. In pet food, ground yellow corn can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.
The second ingredient is Corn Gluten Meal. Corn gluten meal is produced as a byproduct from the manufacture of corn syrup and other sweeteners made with corn. It contains no wheat gluten. The corn gluten meal in pet food is a source of inexpensive protein, but it has high levels of cysteine, which have been linked to the formation of urinary stones.
The third ingredient is Soybean Meal. Soybean meal is the pulverized, ground remnants of soybeans after soy oil has been extracted. In pet food, soybean meal serves as an inexpensive source of plant-based protein, along with some carbohydrates.
The fourth ingredient is Meat. Meat is a general term for muscle tissue or flesh from an animal that has been slaughtered for consumption. In pet food, meat is a source of protein as well as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and trace nutrients.
The fifth ingredient is Bone Meal. Bone meal is cooked, dried, finely ground animal bones from species that have been slaughtered for consumption. When added to pet food, bone meal can be a good source of trace elements and minerals including calcium and phosphorus to support your companions musculoskeletal system.
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 Kit & Kaboodle Dry Cat Food.
