Why are there grains in cat food?

Many food manufacturers aim to create cat food that is formulated to contain all the nutrients a cat needs to live a healthy life. Food must therefore contain a certain percentage of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, supplemented with the right amount of vitamins and minerals. Grains, if properly digested, are a very good source of these important nutrients for a cat. That is why grains are often added to animal food. However, this does not mean that a cat also needs grains in its food.

Why should you choose a grain-free food for your cat?

Cats are true carnivores and can live better than dogs on meat alone. This does not mean that your cat can live on chicken breast. When we talk about a meat diet, we are ideally talking about the whole animal, including the organs and intestines. This way, a cat should be able to get all the nutrients it needs. Because it is often laborious to feed your cat fresh meat, many owners prefer to give their cat food that is high in proteins and low in carbohydrates. That’s why kibble foods for cats have been developed with a high meat content. These foods are composed in such a way that they are close to the natural diet of the cat. These foods are therefore usually also free of grains.

Grain-free means free from wheat, millet, barley, oats, rye, teff and spelt, but also free from maize and rice, because these are also grains. As alternative carbohydrate sources, vegetables such as pumpkin, (sweet) potato and legumes are often added to a grain-free diet to compose a complete diet with all the substances your cat needs.
