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 kitty didn't like the chicken Lotus

    By Sophiebun on Jul 27, 2021

    My kitty loves Lotus Just Juicy Venison Stew, but Chewy has had it on backorder for over a month. I thought I'd try the Chicken Stew for my kitty. He said "no, way, I want my Venison Just Juicy". I'm sure the kitties at the rescue will appreciate this great quality food, I gave it 3 stars even though it's a 5 star quality because my fur baby wouldn't eat it so it was a waste.

    Just..not for my cat

    By EEEZZZ on Sep 28, 2021

    My cat won’t even touch this, even though she is very hungry. But she loves the venison version. I’m about to donate this box to a nearby shelter.

    My cat's absolute favorite!

    By Luke on May 26, 2021

    I think this product is very underrated. I've switched between different brands and forms of wet food and my cat just loves this. Each little can is one perfect meal size, contains sufficient juice which cats definitely need. The shredded meat looks so appetizing. Sure it's a little pricey but definitely worth it.

    My kitty loves this!

    By RasingDusty on Apr 17, 2021

    My kitty is a picky eater. BUT she loves this. She loves the juice and the chicken is shredded WHITE meat NOT by products. All of the LOTUS Just Juicy is great. Get a few cans of each of the flavors and see what YOUR kitty likes. You WON'T be sorry!

    Wish my cats had liked this

    By dwhi46 on Mar 6, 2021

    Have been looking for healthier canned food to give my cats. Was hopeful after reading other reviews. Nope. Tried serving it twice and only 1 of 4 licked up some of the juice and left the chicken. Going to have to give the other 30+ cans away. It’s a pricier food which I hoped meant healthier but I guess in the long run it means I can look for something less expensive.

    Paw-lickin' good

    By Nalow2012 on Nov 25, 2020

    My picky girl loves this new-to her flavor as well as she loves the venison recipe. Admittedly, she sometimes leaves some of the shredded meat behind, and I do try to break up the larger pieces for her, but overall this one is a winner for her and me. The jury still seems to be out on the pollock recipe, which she eats well sometimes but not others. All recipes seem to have a good balance of meat to gravy, none were too watery.

    Kittens love it!

    By Josie on Jul 28, 2020

    I ran out of their other canned food and ran to the store to get them some cans of this! I had been familiar with the brand and our kittens loved it so much so I kept buying it. A word of advice, use kitchen scissors to cut up the chicken in the can and then give it to them! The chicken comes shredded and I found that they weren’t eating the meat. Once I cut it up, there was no problem.
