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

    Good Stuff

    By on

    Three years ago, our six year old English Springer developed Bilious Vomiting Syndrome. He started throwing up a clear bile almost every morning before getting out of bed. We took him to our vet who ran several tests and sent samples to Texas Tech for more detailed testing. Our vet put him on a specialized dog food to resolve the problem. it did not. Symptons got worse. Our vet wanted to perform internal surgery to " see what he could find". We did not agree. Finally, I called our trainer and asked her if she had any ideas. She asked one of her trainer friends who recommended the Lotus chicken dry and canned foods. We have had no issues since we started feeding the Lotus foods.

    Not a typical stew

    By on

    This is finely shredded turkey in a heavy gravy. Any other ingredients are invisible. It is unappealing to look at as well as the smell. Needless to say my dog doesn’t like it. A huge waste of money, being that this is an expensive dog food!

    My senior border collie loved it. And my 11/2 year old husky is a very fussy and picky eater. She devoured it.

    By on

    My puppy loves this food. You can see the chunks of turkey and whole blueberries and chopped carrots in every can. It's not super thick like people have mentioned because it doesn't contain thickeners like carrageenan or guar gum. It's definitely pricey but I believe it's worth it.

    Great for mixing with dry food

    By on

    My dog wouldn't eat his dry food without wet being mixed in. He has cancer so we have him on a strict diet of very healthy, grain free food. The consistincy is perfect for mixing with dry food. Yes, it is like a stew (as it is called in the name) so it mixes much easier than regular wet food that has the consistency of compacted mush. Its not as "meaty" as you would think it would be for the price but it has really great ingredients and helps me be able to mix easier than regular wet food.

    First Try a Success

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I recently switched the dogs off dry kibble altogether. This Lotus Turkey Stew Flavor was our first purchase of both the Lotus Brand and the Stew line. My dogs LOVED it, without condition or qualification! Even my picky girl runs to the kitchen for mealtime; before, she had to be called. I did not think it was watery, as one reviewer did. It is thick like a stew, but without being gelatinous. I think that the moisture is good for the dogs' digestion, nutrition and coats. There are pieces of carrot, which look as if they came from something whole and out of the ground, rather than slices of processed roll as in some human soups or canned foods.

You can also see whole blueberries and shredded turkey. I chose Lotus and the Stew line, because it is grain free, uses real turkey breast and not processed meat roll, uses #California# local products, and is made "fresh" in the USA in small batches. Nutritional analysis shows Protein at 10%, Fat at 4%, and Moisture at 80%. There are also Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids #0.2% and 0.5%, respectively#. On a calorie weighted basis, fat shows up at a slightly smaller percentage #40%# than protein #42%#, and carbohydrates #18%# are less than 20%. The fat and carbohydrate content are significantly lower for a canned dog food, while the protein content remains high. Also this food does not use carrageenan, guar gum or xanthan gum for thickening. All in all, all 3 of us are very pleased with this choice and we cannot wait to try Lotus' other flavors! Thank you, Lotus, and thank YOU, Chewy! … more

    Not Worth the Money Unfortunately

    By on

    While I like this product for the ingredients that it comprises of, I am very disappointed in the finished product. It is not "Stew". It is watery soup with some strands and pieces of turkey floating in it. Not worth over $3.00 a can. My dog does like the taste and is happy to eat it but even with just a 30lb dog, I would have to give her 3 or 4 cans at a time to fill her up and I would have to strain the liquid out of most of it otherwise she would basically be drinking her dinner. I have found the beef shank stew to also be very soupy but not quite as much as the turkey stew. If the company would make it more stew like and add more solid ingredients (i.e. meat, veg), I would consider buying While I like this product for the ingredients that it comprises of, I am very disappointed in the finished product.

    More Like Soup

    By on

    My issue with the Lotus stew products isn't with the ingredient quality, rather it's with the consistency. I'd be unlikely to call it a stew, rather more like a soup consistency. Probably won't buy this again as I'm not sure the product consistency provided value considering the cost. My two (somewhat picky eater) dogs ate (licked) it initially but quickly lost interest.

    Perfect for a special-diet-needs dog!!

    By on

    I ordered a case of the canned Lotus grain-free turkey stew for a friend of mine who does pit bull (and cross-posts for ALL breeds) rescue. She has one of her dogs who NEEDS to eat this, but she struggles with buying it because of its cost. I ordered her a case as a way to say "thank you" for giving up one of her weekends to drive a U-Haul box truck FULL of supplies she collected down to an EXTREMELY hurting rescue in South Carolina (low budget, and getting flooded during heavy rains on top of it!) from Delaware. Plus, she is currently keeping a pit mom whom I pulled from that shelter and kept for 3 weeks until I delivered them to her to get homes.

    My dogs love it!

    I have 4 dogs and they all equally love this food. It's not too soupy with just enough turkey meat to please them. We usually use it to mix in with their Lotus dry food, which they also enjoy.
