M.I.C.E.™ (All meat protein) meals contain all of the 22 amino acids that cats use in their bodies. Of those 22 amino acids, 11 are essential amino acids. Those essential amino acids are arginine, methionine, histidine, phenylalanine, isoleucine, threonine, leucine, tryptophan, lysine, valine, and taurine ~

WHAT CATS NEED NUTRITIONALLY AND HOW THE INGREDIENTS PACK10 USES, SUPPORTS THAT, WITHOUT ADDING SYNTHETIC VITAMINS OR MINERALS: Taurine is found naturally in animal products such as poultry, eggs, dairy and the highest concentrations in meat! We use only the BEST, FRESH, MOIST, Gently Cooked, NOT-processed, USDA certified and organic meat proteins! Vitamin B12 is found naturally in, red meat, poultry, milk, cheese, and eggs. Again, we use only the BEST, FRESH, MOIST, Gently cooked, NOT-processed, USDA certified and organic meat proteins! Vitamin E, Safflower oil, and fish oil are naturally rich in linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, and omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids (vitamin e).
***AWARENESS: In almost every instance, moist, natural foods contain higher protein, fat and fiber content than dry foods – Wet and dry foods are not calculated in the same way until you remove the moisture and recalculate. In other words one cannot compare the guaranteed analysis of a wet pet food to a dry food against each other as they are currently labeled by AAFCO standards. They are measured differently, and can therefore be misleading.
The purpose of the Guaranteed Analysis panel is to make it easy for consumers to compare four critical nutrients…
However, when used alone, these numbers can be misleading.
That’s because the system used for reporting the percentages fails to consider the widely varying amount of water present in different types of foods. And this can be a critical factor when comparing moist foods — like canned,GENTLY COOKED, or raw products — WITH dry kibbles.
Even the Food and Drug Administration warns of the importance of paying attention to this issue on its own website…1
“To make meaningful comparisons of nutrient levels between a canned and dry product, they should be expressed on the same moisture basis.”
