This is a list of ingredients found in Premium Edge Adult Chicken and Rice Formula. One thing I really like about this food is it does contain Omega 3 and 6 Fatty acids!

Ingredients:
Chicken, chicken meal, rice flour, oatmeal, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), corn gluten meal, flaxseed, beet pulp, natural chicken flavor, fish meal, potassium chloride, salt, choline chloride, methionine, taurine, zinc sulfate, vitamin E supplement, niacin, manganese sulfate, copper sulfate, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin A supplement, biotin, potassium iodide, calcium pantothenate, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, manganese oxide, sodium selenite, menadione sodium bisulfite (source of vitamin K activity), vitamin D supplement, folic acid.


I know that rice flour and corn gluten meal are just fillers but I like that it has chicken and chicken meal as the first two ingredients and oatmeal!
The kitten formula has whole grain brown rice instead of rice flour!

Does anyone have any experience with this food?

Premium Edge is an ok food, certainly if you have access to it, in compairison to grocery store foods then I would choose that one on average.
Most of the high quality (non commercial) brands out there now adays also include ingredients for Omega 3 and 6 Fatty acids. You just have to know what they are and how to find them. :)

Sensible Choice - Adult:
Chicken meal, brewers rice, rice flour, chicken, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), spray dried chicken liver, powdered cellulose, chicken digest, spray dried whole eggs, brewers dried yeast, DL-methionine, potassium chloride, salt, calcium carbonate, choline chloride, vitamin E supplement, taurine, ferrous sulfate, ascorbic acid, zinc proteinate, vitamin A supplement, copper proteinate, zinc oxide, niacin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, biotin, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, manganous oxide, extract of rosemary, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, calcium iodate, riboflavin supplement, folic acid, sodium selenite.

This food is clearly better then what you will find in grocery stores, so it would be a decent pick. No corn or by-products, high in Chicken. I have fed this food in the past and found it to be very greasy however, which wasn't something to my personal liking, this is due in part because of the chicken digest and sprayed dried whole eggs. Whenever you notice a dry food that seems greasy it's typically because of ingredients similar to those, which are basically added in there for palatability, not for any nutritional intrest. Fiber intake is within a good range of 3% for your average cat.
There are a few small things about each food I don't particularly care for such as the corn in Premium Edge. But I would have to say, if you were to decide between the two, I would see how Premium Edge fairs with your cat first.
