Ingredient Review

Our review of Snappy Tom Naturals Tuna with Mackerel Cat Food Pouches begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Tuna. Tuna is a general name for one of several saltwater fish species. In pet food, tuna is generally used as a protein source.

The second ingredient is Mackerel. Mackerel is meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species. In pet food, mackerel serves as a source of protein, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

The third 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 fourth 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.

The fifth ingredient is Taurine. Taurine is an essential amino acid that is only present in animal protein. Some pets (including dogs) produce their own taurine, but cats do not. Supplemental taurine in pet food helps your companion’s entire body function properly, with important roles in brain, kidney, and heart health.

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 Naturals Tuna with Mackerel Cat Food Pouches.
