Ingredient Review

Our review of Atta Cat Chicken & Salmon Flavor Dry Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Ground Yellow Corn. Ground yellow corn is made with cooked kernels from yellow corn species. In pet food, ground yellow corn can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

The second ingredient is Chicken By-Product Meal. In pet food, chicken by-product meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken by-product meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken parts that might not be used for human consumption including necks, feet, entrails, and undeveloped eggs.

The third ingredient is Corn Gluten Meal. Corn gluten meal is produced as a byproduct from the manufacture of corn syrup and other sweeteners made with corn. It contains no wheat gluten. The corn gluten meal in pet food is a source of inexpensive protein, but it has high levels of cysteine, which have been linked to the formation of urinary stones.

The fourth ingredient is Soybean Meal. Soybean meal is the pulverized, ground remnants of soybeans after soy oil has been extracted. In pet food, soybean meal serves as an inexpensive source of plant-based protein, along with some carbohydrates.

The fifth ingredient is Ground Wheat. Ground wheat is a coarser form of ground wheatberries than wheat flour, usually made with the whole grain. In pet food, ground wheat can add texture while serving as an inexpensive source of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Atta Cat Chicken & Salmon Flavor Dry Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from plant based sources.

    We bought atta cat chicken & salmon flavor from BiMart in Newberg Oregon. We have fed our cats this for years. This time we ended up getting dark brown and mainly powder. Our cats will not eat it.

  • Shawna Adams

    I concur its not the same formula its different color and our cats want eat it either.

  • Jerri Bennett

    Why did you change your recipe. It’s really nasty, and my kitties turn up their noses at it. I’ve bought it for years, but won’t be buying it again. Such a shame!!!!!

  • Carol Petty

    Reading the above reviews, I agree. We buy it at Costco and they will refund us. We usually buy 2-3, 20LB bags at a time. I noticed the bad bags had a black opening strip and the good bags had a white one. Must of changed their recipe, been buying it for at least 15 years, never had a problem before.

  • Mary C Lawrence

    This is exactly my feeling too! My cats are VERY disappointed.. it’s going BACK to the store and I will never purchase it again. Don’t you know how fussy cats are… you can’t change their food just like that..”C’mon Man”….
