How I Evaluate Cat Foods…

“After having studied the ingredients in over 1,500 wet, canned cat foods, I created this website. This is the place to hear some truth about cat food. It’s also the place where you can learn to evaluate cat food brands yourself.” – Doug Hines

First read the Cat Food Reviews – Introduction to understand how I evaluate products.

I assign review ratings based solely on the ingredients in the can.

This is not some subjective bake-off where I am grading chocolate chip cookies because they taste good to me. My personal likes and dislikes have absolutely nothing to do with the rating process. An ingredient either contributes to, or detracts from, a cat’s health. Period. 

Look at the can’s ingredients list and compare it to the bad ingredients list HERE.

Protect your cat’s long term health. Don’t feed products which contain bad ingredients. Choose wisely now, and give your cat a good, healthy life later.

 

Review Ratings:

A = Superior Cat Food

B = Better Than Average

C = Average

D = Below Average

E = Poor Choice

X = Detrimental to a Cat’s Health

Based Solely on Reviewing the Ingredients

All 33 Products are Rated ‘E’ –

Substandard/Poor-Quality

OVERALL PRODUCT LINE REVIEW RATING

Based solely on the ingredients, I consider Fromm Four-Star® to be a substandard cat food.

My Review Summary

My Evaluation/Review Of The

Fromm® Four-Star™ Product Line

“The use of protein substitutes like lentils and chickpeas, the use of grains like barley, the use of fruit like cranberries and blueberries, the use of carbohydrate vegetable sources like carrots and sweet potatoes, are all unnecessary to a cat’s diet. 

Since a cat’s digestive tract is not configured for long-term digestion, i.e. food has a short transit time, some of these ingredients are extremely unfavorable to cats. Other ingredients are downright detrimental. Manufacturers include such ingredients because these words sound good to humans. 

There are much better products on the market. I consider Fromm’s to be a substandard cat food, and I wouldn’t feed it to my cats.”
