I don't know, here are the comparisons and to me it looks like chicken soup is the best one for the price range. I used Nutro before and we did well off of it but we could do better!

This is the ingredient list for the Nutro Ultra~
1. Chicken Meal

2. Whole Brown Rice

3. Ground Rice

4. Lamb Meal

5. Rice Bran

6, Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols; a source of Vitamin E),

20. Dried Kelp Meal

21. Vitamin E Supplement

22. Zinc Sulfate

23. Choline Chloride

24. Taurine

25. Dried Bacillus licheniformis Fermentation Extract

26. Dried Bacillus subtilis Fermentation Extract

27. Zinc Proteinate

28. Ferrous Sulfate

29. Biotin

30. L-Carnitine, Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C)

Innova is a really good food. Around Christmas time we got little packages, and I've been using them as training treats. Chicken Soup is a pretty good food, I personally don't consider it bad, but Innova is better than it.

It looks like Chicken soup is better than Nutro, at least the first 2 ingredients are whole meat and then the chicken and turkey meal, whereas the Nutro and Canindae both have chicken/turkey meal as the first ingredients, and then grains, no mention of whole meats until waaayy later on the list. And Chicken Soup isn't as expensive. I just chose Eagle Pack because I couldn't find Chicken soup in can form, and I wanted to try that since he's never had it before.
