Ingredients?

What do you guys think of these ingredients of canned cat food?
Chicken, Duck, Potassium Chloride, guar gum, vitamin and mineral supplements, zinc methionine and water for sufficient processing.

I'm not a fan of the guar gum, but overall, that's not bad.  It would be nice if they actually listed the "vitamin and mineral supplements."

Sounds okay.  No grains, or fruit and veg, no carrageenan or other seaweed, or xanthan  like Pookie I'd want the vitamins and minerals broken down.

In a perfect world, it would be duck OR chicken...not both. If I was feeding canned... I'd put it in our rotation.
