Ingredient Review

Our review of Tiki Cat Born Carnivore Chicken & Herring Grain-Free Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Chicken. Deboned chicken is chicken meat with the bones removed. In pet food, deboned chicken is a valuable source of protein.

The second 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.

The third ingredient is Herring. Herring is a general term for several species of saltwater fish. In pet food, herring can be a good source of protein, plus it offers many other important nutrients including essential fatty acids.

The fourth ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

The fifth ingredient is Herring Meal. Herring meal is the ground, dried tissue from the herring fish. In pet food, herring meal can serve as a source of easily digested protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to benefit your companion’s overall 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 Tiki Cat Born Carnivore Chicken & Herring Grain-Free Dry Cat Food.
