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

    Our Cats' Choice

    By on

    We've been feeding our several indoor cats Lotus Pork Pate for over a year. While they have always liked it, our most recent batch of cans make us wonder whether something is a bit different in the taste. It's obvious that the consistency of this batch is different, as it is much more moist. In any event, the cats have gone from liking the food to LOVING it. As soon as I open the closet door in the morning to get a can, I turn around to find eager faces looking up at me. And when I put the food down for them, it's gone within a few minutes, whereas it formerly lasted several hours before needing to be replenished. I don't know whether this case is a fluke or what, but if it IS a fluke We've been feeding our several indoor cats Lotus Pork Pate for over a year.

And when I put the food down for them, it's gone within a few minutes, whereas it formerly lasted several hours before needing to be replenished. I don't know whether this case is a fluke or what, but if it IS a fluke, please let the fluke continue because we definitely prefer that the bulk of the food our cats eat be a high quality protein food with the first few listed ingredients being meat or meat derivatives, as opposed to kibble - no matter how high quality the kibble. If the food continues to be the same and our cats as avid eaters of it, we'll end up spending more by switching over to providing them more canned food and less kibble, (we have kibble to provide a change for them and because some of our cats have a slight preference for kibble) but it's worth it to us. … more

    They are eating it, but not with gusto!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I bought a couple of cans of this pork flavor at a local retailer to try it on the cats. Of course, they gobbled it down like it was their all-time favorite. So, I ordered a case from Chewy.com. Of course, as with all such efforts I make for cats, it was not appreciated, and now they kind of only grudgingly eat it. I have found that if I mix a little warm water in and smoosh it up some, they eat it better. It tends to be a bit dry.

    Pretty good

    By on

    My 2 cats like the pork pate pretty well. They prefer the duck pate and the pollack, however. But it’s great to have an alternate flavor without chicken that they like. It’s fairly dense and does require a lot of added water, which I don’t mind.

    Unfortunately, It's A No Go!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I tried the pork for my cat because the veterinarian mention that chicken could be what's making my cat sick with diarrhea. Unfortunately, she didn't like it. I donated it to my cousin. His cat will eat anything, so it didn't go to waste. :-)

    One of the mysteries of the universe is What Will Cats Eat?

    By on

    I made this purchase after locally buying a test can. Two of three cats ate it and that was enough for me to add it to the rotation. Now three of three want give it the time of day. This "pate" is a weird consistency and also rather odd looking, strangely textured with some kind of indiscernible ingredient that stands out as little specks. I don't blame the cats for going back on their original position. I just recently took Chewy up it's "return" policy and donated some other cans to the local shelter. If I didn't feel like I'd maxed out on Chewy's good will, I'd ask for a refund on this too.

    Off to a Good Start

    By on

    my cat is sort of particular. not exactly picky, but he has strong opinions. i gave him both the pork pate and the duck and he liked both. repeat feedings have gone well, too. the pates have a different texture and slightly different smell than others, but, so far, that seems to be a good thing. i ordered more . . .

    Mediocre Food

    A couple of my cats tolerate this, but most don’t care for it and give me the evil eye when I try to feed it.

    All of my cats love this food. Two of my cats take medicine twice a day and I am able to mix it in the liquid and they lap it up.

    No Go for Our Cats

    By on

    Both of our cats dislike the Lotus Pork Pate. Turn their noses up and walk away. Low on moisture and dry chalky texture.
