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

    Not for us

    By Nickname on Nov 25, 2021

    Glamoury will eat it (eventually) but it is fairly obvious that he would prefer something else.

    It's a modest hit!

    By DKMC on Apr 11, 2021

    My very senior cat likes it well enough, as long as I add a little water. She only has four teeth and appreciates food that is a little less dense. That said, she almost always finishes her portion. I can tell this is a quality food.

    Both cats didn’t like it

    By evsw on Mar 23, 2021

    Unfortunately neither one of my cats liked it. Even the one who would literally eat anything. The smell is also quite strong.

    Not so much

    By Vancat on Nov 5, 2020

    My cats like the "Blue" brand duck flavor much better. This is sort of gelatinous and dense rather than soft pate.

    All 10 cats loved this food.

    By Specklepaw on Jun 30, 2020

    I have 10 cats and it is not very usual that I find one food they all agree on. I found this food on sale and tried it and they all ate it right up...kind of a first. Unfortunately I can't afford to feed this to them all the time but thought I would put their reaction out there for those who can spoil one or two cats.

    Terrible Customer Service at Lotus Brand

    By Mmmew on Mar 9, 2020

    I had been using this canned Duck Pate as part of my rotation of 3-4 brands of canned Limited Ingredient Duck foods for my two kitties with food sensitivities and even though it is not totally one protein source, there is pork and I think a little fish in the mix...it was well tolerated by both cats and by rotating brands it keeps them interested. I switched to the smallest size when the price went up to just about the most expensive brand at Chewy and decided to give it to them less frequently.....as a treat. I opened a can and found a piece of what looked like a blue plastic, cellophane type object, took some photos and wrote directly to the company....to Lotus. They emailed back for some more I had been using this canned Duck Pate as part of my rotation of 3-4 brands of canned Limited Ingredient Duck foods for my two kitties with food sensitivities and even though it is not totally one protein source, there is pork and I think a little fish in the mix...it was well tolerated by both cats and by rotating brands it keeps them interested.

They mentioned replacement, which would have been what I would expect from a company who wants to keep my business....but nada. Nothing. No emails....no replacement. Nada. It is going on two months now!? I am done with this company. I buy A LOT of stuff for my cats online...I LOVE Chewy and Chewy WOULD have sent me a replacement if I had contacted them. In this case I feel it has nothing to do with Chewy and everything to do with customer relations at Lotus. They need a heck of a lot of improvement in that department and they have lost a customer due to their lack of communication. Sadly for them I am also a cat-sitter and cat-boarder with a big mouth and will make sure I ‘poo-poo’ their brand both for the cost and the terrible customer service. Who needs them? Meow! … more

    Good Quality

    By Chill on Jan 4, 2020

    The cat that I feed this to has IBS. I tried this, the rabbit, and the sardine pates from Lotus, among many other cat foods with different protein sources, when trying to find something that would be better for her. She has done best on this so far, though her poops are still quite stinky and not quite solid. In any case, I’m definitely sticking with this, but I think I’ll also try other duck-based foods to switch between because she is getting bored of eating the same thing over and over.

    healthy food

    By pepper on Jan 24, 2020

    my cat likes the taste, but it's dry and after it sits for a while it's even more dry. I have to mix liquid treats with it so he eats the rest. it has healthy ingredients & no unhealthy ingredients but it's just too dry. my cat only has a couple teeth so he has to lick it. I would buy it again if it was a lot more moist.
