Guaranteed Analysis

The guaranteed analysis is listed on Princess’s original packaging.

All guaranteed analysis labels should include the minimum crude protein, minimum crude fat, maximum crude fiber, and maximum moisture content.

Crude Protein (min)≥31.50%
Crude Fat (min)≥08.50%
Crude Fiber (max)≤04.50%
Moisture (max)≤10.00%
Table 2: Princess Guaranteed Analysis

“Crude” is the analytical method determining protein, fat, and fiber. For example, to get the crude protein, the amount of nitrogen is analyzed and then multiplied by 6.25.

Checking the guaranteed analysis is the incorrect way of comparing it against the cat food nutrient requirements by AAFCO. It needs to be converted to a dry matter basis.

Dry Matter Basis

AAFCO’s nutrient requirements are indicated on a dry matter basis–excluding the moisture content. So we’ve converted the guaranteed analysis to dry matter basis for you below.

We rate Philippine cat food brands by ingredient quality, nutritional balance, product variety, price, and availability.

Ingredient quality: ★★★★★(1.8 of 5.0 stars)

Princess scored 1.8 stars in ingredient quality as a brand because of non-human-grade ingredients and the predominant use of non-animal components in its formulation.

The product’s predominant flavor source is derived from an artificial powdered meal. However, it’s important to highlight that the formula includes taurine, a crucial nutrient essential for the well-being of our cats.

Princess scored 3.5 stars in nutritional balance as a brand because it meets AAFCO’s minimum nutrient requirements for adult maintenance, growth & reproduction.

Product variety: ★★★★★(2.0 of 5.0 stars)

Princess scored 2.0 stars in product variety as a brand because it reflects the limitation of offering only dry cat food, which may not cater to all feline companions’ preferences, featuring various ingredients to cater to potential allergies.

Price: ★★★★★(5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Princess scored 5.0 stars in price as a brand, primarily attributed to its budget-friendly nature with a cost of 0.17 per gram. This affordability factor makes it an attractive option for cost-conscious pet owners.
