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

    Should be called "Mostly Juice"

    By on

    My cat liked the taste of this food. The problem is that the can is about 1/2 gravy and 1/2 food. I've never had a can of cat food that is so much gravy. I tried a can of it that I had purchased from a pet store about 8 months ago and not used. She liked it, and it did not have so much gravy like the product does now. So I decided to order a case from Chewy. I was so disappointed after I opened the first can, to find it swimming in gravy. It is expensive to begin with, and it takes 2 cans of this food to equal 1 can of the Blue Basics duck and potato that I have been feeding her. I have been trying to find another product to give her some variety, and trying to avoid chicken and grains My cat liked the taste of this food.

So I thought this product would fit the bill, but it is not a good buy for the money. They need to put in more meat and less gravy. I love Chewy. It is not their fault. If this is how Lotus continues to make their food, I won't buy it, and hope Chewy stops carrying it. … more

    Only canned venison food my cat will eat

    By on

    My cat is on a novel protein diet while we work through his health issues with my vet. Venison is working for him, but he would only eat it in a dry food (natural balance). I had just given up on finding a canned version for him but when he got crystals in his urine, increasing his moisture intake became a priority. I already knew he wouldn't touch Natural Balance or Ziwi canned venison so I'm thrilled to find that he actually LIKES Just Juicy. So far, he even seems to prefer it to the dry food.

    Kali loves it

    By on

    Kali has chicken allergies, so the Just Juicy Venison was a great option. She loves broth more than meat, this has more broth than meat, so she is happy. Expensive but worth it

    Wow, huge hit!

    By on

    I bought a few cans from a local store just to try and get my cat to eat something (this and several dozen other brands). She was sick and stopped eating, even her favorite Applaws. All better now, but seems to have acquired a taste for red meat, particularly this brand. The can comes out, I get a pitiful look like "can't you see I'm starving"? Licks everything clean, even the carrots. Will be adding to my next shipment. I think we found a winner!

    The best thing for my picky IBD cat

    By on

    Occasional diarrhea went away almost overnight when I started feeding this to my guy once a day for his dinner. He's really picky about textures and won't eat other foods that won't upset his tummy, but he loves the whole Just Juicy line. I even add a little extra water and he loves it. I don't know what I would do without this food.

    Nope, they won’t eat it

    By on

    I thought I’d give my kitties something different to eat, as they had become even more picky than usual. This product wasn’t a hit, and they went hungry rather than eat this product. My husband hunts whitetail deer, so I know they like venison, but this evidently doesn’t taste like the real thing fresh from the animal.

    Thought we would try......

    By on

    Our cats LOVE the Just Juicy Pork by Lotus so we thought we would give the Venison a try. They will lick some of the juice off and eat a little of the meat but then walk away. They do not seem to care much for this one.

    Actual real venison meat, not a lot of filler!

    By on

    I have two cats, one of which will eat anything, even stuff I drop on the floor. The other is a purebred that can ONLY eat single source protein, and no poultry whatsoever, due to her delicate constitution. I tried two of the other big cat food companies' venison and both of my cats HATED it. Proud to announce that both cats absolutely adore Lotus' canned venison and slurp it down without stopping. Some people have complained about connective tissue and so forth but what do you think cats eat in the wild?

    Just Loving This

    Both of my cats love this, and have no itching after they eat it. Totally worth the price. They cannot eat chicken. Try it. This is a great brand.
