Ingredient Review

Our review of Snappy Tom Lites Chicken with Vegetables Canned Cat Food 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 Pumpkin. Pumpkin is a type of winter squash. High in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, it is also a good source of fiber. In pet food, pumpkin promotes healthy digestion while enhancing flavor and providing added nutrition.

The third ingredient is Carrot. In pet food, carrot serves as a source of easily digested carbohydrate and fiber. Carrots contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help support your pet’s health.

The fourth ingredient is Modified Tapioca Starch. Modified tapioca starch comes from the cassava root. During processing, it is modified to partially degrade the structure of the granules, rendering it more effective as a stabilizing agent. In pet food, modified tapioca starch is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates.

The fifth ingredient is Gum. In pet food, gum is a general term that refers to a binder that helps other ingredients in the recipe cling together. Gums are typically made with natural ingredients from plant-based sources, and are widely used in manufacturing food, medications, and dietary supplements for human consumption.

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 Snappy Tom Lites Chicken with Vegetables Canned Cat Food.
