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 cat is very selective, but loved this food!

    By on

    I've a 4 years old main coon, long hair and very fussy. Got a sample at store and she absolutely loved it! She doesn't eat the entire food, so I keep half of the portion for her next time in the fridge and when is the time I add a little hot water to it. Also I don't give her the other kind of stews so she doesn't get tired of having fish all the time.

    Lotus is the best

    By on

    My cat (Ragdoll) loves this food! She was prescribed soft (Renal food) but would not eat it, so I took a chance and supplemented this food along with renal dry and she is doing great! Chewy has the best deal too.

    Creamy yumminess

    By on

    As per usual, those kitties licked off all the gravy left the fish chunks. The chunks can be big sometimes, so I usually mash them up the best I can, but there is always fish left in the bowl.

    Great product and Chewy.com made it easy to get

    By on

    My picky cat turns her nose up at all wet food other than this one! Chewy.com had a very reasonable price compared to pet stores (including online) and I was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly the food got to me after ordering (just a couple of days!) Thank you!

    Product is healthy for my cat

    By on

    It's very healthy, looks like food people would eat, ,and seems like it's good for my cat but it's so different from normal cat food that it's taking him a while to get use to it. Great product but you may waste 3 or 4 cans before they come around.

    Favorite food of three cats I know

    By on

    This food visually resembles fish chowder with a creamy sauce. It is refreshing to buy food that looks like something we might cook ourselves. I wasn't surprised when these cats decided the Just Juicy Pollock Stew was their favorite food.

    Cats just turned their nose to it

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I really wanted my cats to like this product, but no use. Inside the can has small pieces of polluck and a nice gravy. Looked great. But my cats won't eat it. Had to give the rest to my sister and her cats just licked the gravy up and that was it.

    May be different for your cat

    By on

    I got a can of this Lotus pollock flavor at a local store to give my cat a taste test. I found out through this food that my cat probably has a food intolerance to pollock because he threw up off and on for the rest of the day. My poor baby! He seemed to eat the Lotus's chicken pate well enough. It looked very good when I opened the can, a good look to the food, white chunks of fish. A shame my cat can't eat it.
