Subject: Wellness Super5Mix Adult
In this newsletter, I thought we would take a look at ingredients in Wellness Super5Mix Adult. The first five ingredients are Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Chicken Liver, Ground Brown Rice, Ground Whole Oats.
Deboned Chicken is the clean flesh without accompanying bone, derived from the parts or whole carcasses of chicken- exclusive of feathers, heads, feet, and entrails. Deboned chicken is highly digestible, an excellent source of amino acids and a good quality protein, and is very palatable.
Chicken meal is the dry rendered (cooked down) product from a combination of clean flesh and skin with or without accompanying bone, derived from the parts of whole carcasses of chicken -- exclusive of feathers, heads, feet, or entrails.
Chicken Liver is the hepatic gland of a chicken. Chicken liver is used primarily to enhance the flavor of pet foods. The liver filters toxins from the blood and can potentially contain a disproportionate amount of these poisons.
Ground Brown Rice is the entire product obtained in grinding the rice kernels after the hulls have been removed. Ground brown rice is a high quality source of carbohydrates, B vitamins and natural fiber. Ground brown rice is slightly less digestible than ground (white) rice.
Ground Whole Oats are the dry ground product of cleaned oats with the hulls removed. Oatmeal is a good source of carbohydrate energy. Oatmeal is a natural, healthy grain that's rich in B vitamins. It also provides balanced amino acids, which are essential for building and maintaining healthy muscle tissue.
Wellnes has a very good ingredient list for a moderately priced food. For cats that are sensitive to corn, this would be an excellent choice of foods. Wellness is also one of the few companies that use human grade ingredients in their pet foods.
