Ingredient Review

Our review of Lotus Just Juicy Chicken Stew Grain-Free Canned Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The second ingredient is Chicken Broth. Chicken broth is made by boiling chicken meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, chicken broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The third ingredient is Calcium Lactate. Calcium lactate is a form of supplemental calcium that doubles as a food additive. In pet food, calcium lactate can be used as a flavor enhancer, thickener, and leavening agent.

The fourth ingredient is Carrots. In pet food, carrots serve as a source of easily digested carbohydrate and fiber. Carrots contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help support your pet’s health.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Lotus Just Juicy Chicken Stew Grain-Free Canned Cat Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
