Crude Protein (30.0 %) is the measure of all sources of nitrogen and includes nonprotein nitrogen, which may have no human value. Crude protein is a chemical analysis of the protein (e.g., chicken, milk, etc.) and non-protein (e.g., grains) amounts in the food. The recipe's low crude protein is important to avoid overtaxing the kidneys.
Crude Fat (13.0 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your cat's food when ingested. The diet is restricted in fat.
Crude Fiber (1.6 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers. A highly digestible fibrous food boosts the healthy absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. It provides major intestinal tract peristalsis, a wave-like muscle contraction to relax the stomach muscles.
