At Young Again, we believe that digestible carbs in excess of 5% should not be fed to your cat. Your cat is an obligate carnivore and lacks the physiology required for the efficient digestion of vegetable matter and, in fact, some carnivorous mammals eat vegetation specifically as an emetic (to induce vomiting). The domestic cat is a prime example of an obligate or true carnivore and has no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates or other vegetable matter. The excess carbs and plant products found in many leading cat foods may be the primary cause of diabetes, obesity and UTI in cats today.
The following charts compare many of the cat foods available on the market today. Ingredients shown in red are comprised of cereal grains, fruits, vegetables, grasses, plant proteins, forage material and/or other ingredients that contain plant protein. Plant-based ingredients that are included as sources of non-digestible dietary fiber are exempt and not shown in red (examples Tomato Pomace, Beet Pulp, Cellulose, Guar Gum and Pea Fiber). Potato Starch, although a plant material, is not shown in red because it contains no plant proteins.
