FAQ

Why is baked dry pet food better than extruded dry pet food?

Because we bake our dog and cat foods, we are able to use up to twice as much fresh meat as extruded pet foods. Then there’s better palatability - in 1 third - party study, Lotus Wholesome Duck Recipe fed 11/2 times better as a first choice against the leading specialty dry duck formulas for dogs. And we do it all without any added flavors or sprayed on fats (Feel the difference - Lotus is not greasy like most extruded foods).Baked foods are cooked at 1 atmospheric pressure slowly cooking and browning each piece of Lotus. Extruders cook food at 2 - 3 times atmospheric pressure using steam. Extruded kibble gets its puffy appearance from being cooked at such high pressure, then being released back into normal atmospheric pressure after cooking. This is cooking from the inside out (think microwave).Oven - baked Lotus retains 100% of its vitamins. Extruded dog and cat foods typically lose an average of 40% of their vitamins. This means that all of Lotus’ fresh fruits and vegetables still provide all of those wonderful antioxidants to keep your best friend’s cells healthy. Lotus even retained 100% of its proteins compared to extruded foods that typically lose 20% during drying the drying process.Feed less! A bag of Lotus lasts 20% longer. This is because a cup of Lotus weighs only 4 oz and many extruded foods weigh an average of 6 ozSlow oven - baking takes about 3 times as long, but we think all the benefits are worth it.

Why do some of the lotus kibble pieces look like they have grill marks on them?

Lotus dry foods are baked in real ovens, like the 1 you have at home. So, of course, there will be some browning from the oven. The Lotus kibbles come out shaped slightly different from each other—the same way homemade cookies are never perfectly round.

Where does lotus source all of their ingredients?

All ingredients are sourced in North America (USA and Canada). There are 3 exceptions on our ingredient lists: New Zealand Green Mussel, Deboned Lamb and Lamb Meal - all these great ingredients come from New Zealand.

Where is lotus made?

Our oven - baked foods are made in small batches in a family owned and operated Canadian bakery. all of our canned foods are made in small batches in our very own micro - cannery in California.

Why are whole grains beneficial?

We use whole grains because of the many nutritional benefits they provide. For example, brown rice provides vitamin E to help maintain healthy cells. Brown rice also supplies insoluble fiber which becomes food for the good bacteria in your pet’s large intestine.In fact, our brown rice is actually more expensive than chicken meal because it’s the same brown rice you’d cook at home. Although chicken meal is a nutritious ingredient, it’s not used in the household kitchen.Rye is another whole grain, but this 1 has the highest concentration of lignans, antioxidant like compounds that help keep cells healthy.Barley and oatmeal are a great source of B vitamins, as well as insoluble fiber, which can help feed good bacteria in the large intestine.

What makes the oil blend in lotus so good for my pet’s skin and coat?

We selected 3 special oils for our dog food, each with their own amazing benefits. We chose soy oil because it is a good source of omega - 6 and omega - 3 fatty acids in the form of Alpha Linolenic Acid. We chose olive oil because it’s a rich source linoleic acid (omega - 6). And we added salmon oil because it’s rich in 2 omega - 3 fatty acids - DHA and EPA. DHA has been shown to improve learning in puppies whose mothers were fed a diet containing DHA. All Lotus cat recipes contain chicken fat as well because cats have an increased need for fat, as compared to dogs.

How do I know that lotus is really ethoxyquin free?

Lotus only purchases proteins that are specified by the manufacturer to be preserved with vitamin E, citric acid, and rosemary. This means all our fish, fish meal, chicken, chicken meal, lamb, lamb meal, duck, and duck meal are all naturally preserved. We do this even though we could claim our food is natural by just adding a natural preservative to the food and not worrying about how our proteins are preserved. We feel it’s necessary to go the extra mile and commit to never buying proteins that are preserved with things like Ethoxyquin, BHT, or BHA even though they are cheaper.

I hear many pet food companies say their food contains no soy. will the soy oil in lotus cause an allergic reaction in my dog or cat?

No, the soy oil is 1 of the oils in Lotus that supplies both linoleic acid (an omega 6 fatty acid) and alpha linolenic acid(an omega 3 fatty acid). It is not a protein like soybean meal which is often used as an inexpensive source of protein in some foods. Allergies are primarily caused by proteins, not fatty acids or oils. In fact, Lotus does not use any concentrated plant based proteins like soybean meal, potato protein, pea protein or rice protein concentrate, for that very reason.

I’ve heard that taurine is a necessary nutrient for cats. I’ve seen added taurine recently in some lamb and rice foods for dogs. why doesn’t lotus add taurine to their lamb and rice formula for dogs?

Because dogs can produce taurine if they have all of the required amino acids. Lotus lamb supplies these amino acids with lamb meat, Pollock and lamb meal as protein sources and not just lamb meal. Lamb meal tends to be higher in ash (bone) and collagen than lamb meat and doesn’t have as much usable protein. Also, Lotus does not use ingredients like rice bran which is often combined with lamb meal which is often the only protein source in other dog foods. When a dog is fed this type of diet, he/she may not get all of the required amino acids to produce taurine, so those dog foods add taurine. A deficiency in taurine can lead to heart issues.

Who does the artwork on lotus’ packaging?

All of the Lotus packaging artwork is done by Bay Area artist Nicholas Wilton. The natural, organic shapes and textures represented in Wilton’s work reflect the organic, holistic nature of Lotus foods. That’s why we chose Wilton to illustrate the images that our art director, Betsy Nathane designed. Wilton’s work can be found at nicholaswiltonpaintings.com

    My how we've changed

    By SugarSkip on Nov 27, 2020

    I bought the duck pate flavor in March 2019 and they loved it. In November 2020 both the chicken and salmon flavor were completed rejected by my 3 not-ever-picky, love-pate, rescue boys. What happened to this food? It is now one weird, granular but solid, mass of yuck. These guys will always eat anything but this is still on the plate the next morning. I even feel guilty about donating this stuff to the poor shelter cats. But that's where these 2 cases are going, minus 4 cans. Total loss.

    Not a big hit with my cats

    By Anerin on Sep 16, 2020

    As much as I thought my cats would like this since they favor chicken pates, they haven't been thrilled with this selection. They do seem to enjoy the Pork Lotus from time to time though.

    Even my stray cats would not eat this.

    By RayRayinLA on Jun 15, 2020

    I actually bought this at a store, not on Chewy, but that store doesn't have a place to review and my experience has been so bad, I just need to share it somewhere to help wary cat-feeders! I bought a case, I've probably thrown out the equivalent of 20 cans. I feed 4 cats of various ages and no one wants anything to do with this. I also put it out for some neighborhood "community cats," and it seems they would rather starve than eat this food. I tried to dress it up a few times, with chicken or beef broth, and that worked a little. I'm really interested to know if ANY cats actually like this. Anyway, save your money.

    My cats liked this but now they won't eat it

    By Teresa on Jan 10, 2019

    I bought a few cans from the local store and my cats liked the food. Then I bought a case from Chewy. Then my cats stopped liking the food. They are spoiled and the other two varieties from my order are their favorite so they just sit and look at me until I open their favorites. So this is now on the back shelf and I hope in a month or so, they'll like it again. This food seems to be high quality.

    What, you don’t like chicken?

    By Mommy on Sep 5, 2018

    Despite my cat eating a chicken and liver kitten food back when he was a kitten, not Lotus, I advanced to Lotus Juicy chicken stew. He seemed to resign himself to lap up the gravy, but ate only a few pieces of chicken, with most pieces being thrown away. Not good. So you like pate style? Let’s try Chicken & Veg. Pate. Not a good result. He sniffed, seemed disappointed, walked away on several attempts to feed him this formula. He did try a couple of bites, but no go. So the Venison is a big thumbs up, and I’m going to try the juicy pork stew next, just to give him a chance of variety in his wet food. Thank you Chewy for your help with this. I have no retail stores near me that carry Lotus.

    amazing food

    By sage on Aug 27, 2018

    My cat didn't go for the stew but the pate he loves. It's all I feed him, a half can at a time, about 2-3 cans a day depending on his mood. I hope this food does not change for the worse like many other brands have.

    Solved 2 health issues but they don't love it

    By Bunnynose on Mar 15, 2018

    One of my kitties has colitis and developed a little blood in her stool, the other kitty is allergic to an unknown ingredient in almost every high-end brand. The second kitty gets diarrhea whenever I switch his food. This brand solved both of those issues! I am so relieved about that. The new problem is, they do not like it that much. I have tried all of the flavors and I have to add in the Just Juicy Chicken Stew to get them to eat it. (They love Lotus Just Juicy Chicken Stew so much)!! But it is not substantial enough for a meal by itself. So... I would definitely recommend this brand.

    My picky cat LOVES this.

    By Angelica on Sep 10, 2017

    I have two cats, one would practically eat anything I throw at her. The other cat however has a particular taste. Not finicky like most cats, just a slow hesitant sort that doesn't finish her plate. This however, she'll eat all of it real quick! That's saying she absolutely loves it! The pate is not as thick like duck which is possibly why she doesn't like that one as much.
