If you’re looking to feed your furry feline something fit for human consumption then look no further. The Honest Kitchen pride themselves in making products regulated to human standards, using ingredients and meats that we ourselves could eat.
Let’s take a look at the Chicken recipe, with a similar Turkey recipe also available.
The first ingredient is chicken, and as it’s in a dehydrated form we can be assured this is the most prominent ingredient in the food. Ingredients are weighed before cooking, so regular chicken would lose around 70% of it’s weight when cooked. That’s not the case here, which is great to see.
The next ingredient is eggs, which despite myths about high cholesterol is actually a wonderful ingredient for our pets. The protein has been shown to be easily digestible in whole egg form, and it’s a great source of taurine which is essential for cats.
The third ingredient is potato which provides little nutrition to a carnivorous cat. I imagine it’s included to bulk up the food and reduce costs, and it’s a pricey food as is. Most pet foods have some form of carbs, and potato is better than the cheap filler grains we find in most pet foods. Sweet potatoes comes next, a better ingredient than potato but still not necessary for a cat.
Flaxseed is an excellent ingredient, with benefits in heart health, overall well-being, skin and coat. We find a nice range of fruits and veggies too.
Honest Kitchen make excellent foods. This is no exception, and highly recommended. 5 star.
