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

    Pollock Stew

    By 5ofcats on Jul 19, 2021

    Thought I would give this a try....but you know, fussy cats...I'm slowing adding to their food hoping they will like the pollock instead of so much tuna.

    Looks Great & Fresh

    By AmbernAva on Jan 18, 2021

    I have to be honest my cats right away drink up the gravy on this stew and they eat only a little bit of the actual Pollock yet you can see how amazingly fresh this fish is so I am not sure why they don't seem to love it as much as they do other brands.

    Good food, fussy cat

    By Nalow2012 on Dec 2, 2020

    I am quite satisfied with the quality of the food. The fish to gravy proportion is fine, and the pieces are either small enough or easy to break up. It has a fishy odor, but not strongly so. Sadly, my tuxedo girl loved it the first day, but has been picky since. I have to doctor it with bay scallops, which sort of works. My tuxedo boy seemed to like it, but he is allergic to fin fish and can't have it regularly. Both cats love the venison flavor.

    Great for IBD! Great quality!

    By Rumpel on Dec 5, 2019

    My 14 year old cat has IBD and was tired of the Z/D canned food. It has been difficult to find foods with limited or single proteins that she does not have a reaction to. This one is great, as pollock is not common, and while there is salmon oil, my cat only has a reaction to the flesh. She loves the juices and the meaty part.

    Sadly a no go.

    By ShanC on Nov 19, 2019

    I had hoped that after my George stopped liking the Venison and Turkey stews this fishy one would do the trick but although he likes to lick up a bit of the broth when the can is first opened after that he won't touch it.

    Picky cat loves this!

    By MinnieMoo on Sep 3, 2019

    Although he loves almost any dry food, one of my cats can be a little finicky about his canned food. This is one of the very few canned foods he doesn't sniff or tentatively lick beforehand...he delves right in. I love the quality ingredients and the extra moisture it allows him. Each can has chunks of real pollock filet in the stew, not processed and pressed bits of meat. I would love to feed this to all my cats but it's somewhat pricey for a multi cat household.

    Cat love this

    By CatLady on Jul 15, 2019

    One cat loves it and the other does not. That is cats for you. I use the Pollock or Venison on the feedings in between when the other cat is not hungry. It smells good enough for human consumption and looks like fish.

    My cat is very selective, but loved this food!

    By Goli on Sep 10, 2018

    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.
