Against The Grain Caribbean Club With Chicken Cheese Dinner Review, The Cat 24

View On Amazon

Chicken appears to be the primary protein source in this canned cat food.

This Against the Grain cat food is a chicken-based food featuring shredded chicken in a thick gravy. Chicken is the first ingredient, representing roughly 85% or more of the total recipe. This ingredient is followed by water and cheddar cheese.

Cheddar cheese, or any type of cheese, is an unusual inclusion in cat food, but not necessarily a bad one. Though cats are lactose intolerant and generally shouldn’t eat dairy, cheddar and other similar cheeses are relatively low in lactose and, unless your cat is particularly sensitive, shouldn’t cause a problem.

Some reviewers observed that they barely noticed the cheese in the food, so the amount may be too scant to have any significant effect.

The food contains a small amount of palm oil as its primary source of fat, contributing to the food’s approximately 10% fat content. Remember that cats naturally consume a diet with roughly 46% fat.

The stew is stabilized with a combination of tapioca and xanthan gum. These ingredients aren’t ideal or species-appropriate, but in the tiny quantities found in this food, they should be safe for cats.

Overall, this food is high in protein with low fat and low carbohydrate content.

The food has 74 calories in each 2.8-ounce can or 26 calories per ounce.
