I’ve grown to like the Nutrience company. Personally I’ve found them more pro-active than most, and they certainly care about their products. In fact, they are so confident in the quality of their foods they give a No Bad Anything promise. That’s a ballsy statement for a pet food manufacturer, so does it hold true?
This review is for Nutrience Natural Turkey, Chicken & Herring, but their Ocean Fish and Duck recipe is very similar.
Deboned turkey and chicken meal are the main ingredients, both great, lean, animal protein sources. Top marks there. We find other meat sources in the food which really backs this up, with turkey meal, herring, and even more chicken further down the ingredients list.
The main grain is steel-cut oats which is one of the best grain choices for a food, and sweet potatoes are a sound inclusion for a further source of carbs. Green peas and lentils are great choices as far as veggies are concerned.
There’s a great range of fruits, vegetables, oils, and other sources of nutrients in the food, making it very well balanced. I love seeing coconut oil in a food as it provides so many health benefits to a cat as well as improving skin and coat health. It really is a wonderful inclusion which I’d like to see more of in pet foods.
All in all I think this is a great food. It’s well thought out, and definitely adhere’s to the No Bad Anything promise.
What’s good about this food….
So many things, it’s very well thought out. It’s also very reasonably priced.
….and what’s not so good.
