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

    no more ammonia smell in cat's pee and healthy looking coat!!

    By on

    My Siamese is 10 years old and her pee was getting a strong ammonia smell,I started calling her the ammonia factory. Put her on this Lotus Just Juicy Chicken Stew Grain-Free and Merrick Purrrfect Bistro Senior dry cat food and no more stench. This Lotus Just Juicy Chicken could probably pass for human food , my cat loves it and her coat is shiny and healthy looking again.

    Too much liquid for the high price

    By on

    My cats like this food, and it seems to have high quality ingredients. However, it is quite expensive, and there is a very large amount of liquid in the can.Not a good value, as the cans don’t go very far. Will look for something else.

    Just what my cat needed.

    By on

    My cat loves this food. I bought the chicken stew and was pleased to see shredded chicken in broth. My cat has reactions to so many fillers and beef and whey that often she becomes ill. She is doing well with this food.

    Too much liquid

    By on

    I've been using this food for several years, but their recent changes are a deal-breaker. There is so much liquid in the can now! The cats don't like the liquid, so that just gets poured out and so little food is left. What a ripoff.

    LONGTIME User......

    By on

    ....but Lotus has recently changed their formula. Ingredients look ok, mostly the same but the order of listing changed around. Higher on the list, more of the ingredient. Looks like nutritional value slightly decreased. Seems like new formulas never make a food better, funny how that works! Farmina has introduced wet food at basically the same $$ as Lotus. Will attempt to switch my cat over.

    My cats did not enjoy this flavor

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Other than licking to taste the food, my cats would not eat it. However, the ferals that I help feed liked the food.

    Extremely disappointed

    By on

    I really liked this product and yet with the newest re-order of both chicken and turkey I find that each can is filled with more than half liquid and very little chicken or turkey. I may not be able to order it again, as the cats are getting very little nutrition from what is now in the can. The amount of liquid is entirely different from the older case I just finished. So, so, so unhappy with whoever in the organization made this change in the product.

    Kitty crack-food

    By on

    Not sure what’s in here. They ate the whole darn can, including all the carrot bits. My little terrors usually hate hate anything not meat ( they tolerate fish). It’s not like I don’t feed them good food. They had fussie cat and hated the chicken with veggies flavor because of said veggies. The Weruva grandma’s chicken soup was eaten but barely and at a slow pace. This one was inhaled in 3 secs. For comparison, this seems to be more gel like (potato starch maybe) and less liquid than some of the Weruva flavors. But there is definitely enough liquid though I think the cans at (5.3 oz) are smaller than the usual 6 oz cans. And since my two fur babies consume more than half of the 24 case (5.3 Not sure what’s in here. They ate the whole darn can, including all the carrot bits.

    Expensive taste

    By on

    My cats have decided that the only cans of food they will partake of are the kind that have a lot of liquid in them so this is considered acceptable. Unfortunately it's one of the more expensive brands. I did talk with the sales rep at a dog food store and I loved their company's location and philosophy. I feel very comfortable with the ingredients and production quality as well as my cats preference for it.

    A Cat Food Scam

    By on

    This food keeps getting more expensive...(one of the most expensive canned food on the market), and the stew keeps getting more watery. This food must be 60% water. I emailed the company to ask about the increased water content and they never even replied. I refuse to buy it anymore. When I asked my cats if they missed it...they said "Lotus who?"
