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

    Soft & stinky, but good

    By on

    The cats seem to really like it. It is very soft pate. Almost creamy. I would imagine it would be good for an older cat with bad teeth. I chose to try it because of its low ash content because I have a kitty prone to bladder crystals. He gets tired of the prescription food all the time.

    Replacement for Turkey & Veggies

    By on

    I usually get an authorship of the Turkey and Vegetables in the same brand, it's great, my cats love it. However this month Chewy was out of stock so I picked this as a replacement. It smells rancid and I cant even be in the room while my cats are eating it! They love it though

    A household favorite

    By on

    Why would people give a low rating to a wet food because their cats didn’t want to eat it? Our cats don’t want to eat a variety of items, that doesn’t mean I am going to start giving out low ratings like I’m Daddy Warbucks. Our cats are a little over five years old and we’ve been feeding them Lotus wet food since they were kittens. The vet raves how our cats maintain a healthy weight, and we have to give credit where it’s due. Thank you, Lotus, for producing a wet food free of grains, gums, and fillers.

    Best stuff!

    By on

    I have a very finicky cat that used to be an outdoor cat and ate lots of mice, rabbits , whatever. Now she is indoors, and she loves this stuff! Also, I have been feeding it twice a day due to some constipation issues and so she is back to regularity. Lots of healthy ingredients!

    Picky Cat Loves This

    By on

    I have a very picky cat who we had to play the cat food game with (switching brands/textures) and he loved this food the very first time we fed it to him. Its not common that he'll sit right down and eat something new but he took to this immediately which was a good sign. I like the grain-free quality ingredients and the lack of guar gum and carrageenan and the like. Thumbs up!

    None of my ten cats will touch it.

    By on

    I really wanted to love this food because the quality of the ingredients is great and it's available in the larger cans, but I have ten cats and none of them will even touch it.

    They don't like it

    By on

    I switched to Lotus after one of my kitties developed colitis. The colitis stopped but for some reason they both HATE this flavor. They will have 2-3 bites and then walk away for good and starve until dinner. I left it out all day this week to see if they would eventually get hungry... nope, they would rather starve. I would try the other flavors and maybe just buy 1 can of this from a pet food store to see if yours likes it before ording a case.

    What happened??

    By on

    We love this food but this time it was weird, like the product separated or something with little fatty type bits in it. Not smooth and yummy like before. My two will not even sniff twice. Maybe just this case?

    Love Lotus

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    This food and company are great. Kitty has decided that he doesn't like pate', so another case of food goes to the shelter. I wish kitty loved Lotus like I do, but I've had to switch to Tiki Cat.
