For this review, we are going to look at the salmon flavored cat food. As you’d expect, the first ingredient in this cat food is salmon meal. Salmon meal is a quality ingredient that is comparable to fresh meat – in some circles, meal is often touted to be better than fresh meat. 

Unlike fresh salmon that is 70 to 80 percent moisture, salmon meal has been dried and all but 10 percent of moisture remains. This makes it a higher concentrate of protein. With turkey meal being the second ingredient, you can rest assured that this food is a great source of protein for your cat.

The next ingredients are dried potatoes and peas. These ingredients are both gluten free and grain free carbohydrates, which aids in your cat’s digestion.

Not only do these ingredients provide carbohydrate energy for your cat, the ingredients also provide some dietary fiber, as well. The cat food also includes pea protein, which helps boost the total protein content as well.
