Why choose low-carb cat food like Catit Nuna?
Diets that include large amounts of grain, rice and corn tend to be high in carbohydrates. Cats are obligate carnivores, and high levels of carbs can cause surges in blood sugar, which may lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. Large amounts of carbs also cause stress to the liver and kidneys, and could lead to sensitivities and even allergies. Catit Nuna is low-carb since it is completely free of wheat, soy and corn. Instead, we use legumes, seeds, and millet. Catit Nuna is high in protein to help keep your cat in shape.
Why is protein so important in cat food?
Cats are obligate carnivores that physically need protein to stay happy and healthy. Their bodies break down protein into amino acids, which is needed to build muscle cells and enzymes. Catit Nuna includes high-quality and easily digestible whole insect protein and hydrolysed yeast protein, topped with a small amount of animal protein – so your cat gets all the nutrients they need to thrive.
Catit Nuna includes millet. What is that exactly?
Millet is an ancient, gluten-free grain that is lower in carbohydrates and higher in proteins and fiber than other grains commonly used in pet food, such as wheat or corn. Millet has a low glycemic index, so it helps stabilise your cat’s blood sugar level and makes them feel satiated for longer. Due to millet’s high antioxidant content, it is also a true superfood for your cat.
Is Catit Nuna more easily digestible than other kibble, and how can I tell the difference in my cat?
Inferior cat food includes large amounts of grain, rice and corn, which are all very hard for cats to digest and metabolise as those ingredients contain tons of carbohydrates. This can cause flatulence, bloating and diarrhea in cats. As we care a lot for your cat’s wellbeing, Catit Nuna is 100% free of corn, wheat and rice. Our mission is to keep your cat happy and healthy, which can only be achieved with the very best ingredients.
What is yeast, and why is it so special?
Yeasts are microorganisms, naturally rich in protein and fibers, that have been used in food processing for centuries (beer, bread, etc.). Hydrolysing yeast boosts all natural benefits by making the yeast more easily digestible. Hydrolysed yeast protein has an amino acid profile similar to that of common animal protein, plus a better palatability and digestibility than meat proteins. In addition, it acidifies cat urine, which could help prevent urinary tract problems in your cat.
What is taurine?
Taurine is a vital component in cat food. This amino acid is being viewed more and more as essential for your cat’s vision, digestion, heart muscle function, and to maintain a healthy immune system. While most mammals are able to physically manufacture enough taurine inside their body to meet their needs, cats have a limited ability to do so. This means taurine absolutely must be included in their diet. Each Catit Nuna recipe contains a balanced amount of taurine, for your cat’s well-being and longevity.
What is meant by “Catit Nuna doesn’t contain any cheap fillers”?
With cheap fillers, we mean ingredients that have little to no functional value to cats, that are added to some cat foods to give it more volume and cut the overall cost of the food. All ingredients in Catit Nuna contribute to your cat’s health and well-being.
Catit Nuna supports healthy skin and coat, with reduced inflammation. What exactly do you mean by inflammation?
Inflammation is your body’s protective response to harmful stimuli like injury, infection or other irritants. Sometimes, inflammation can become chronic, resulting in painful conditions. The most common types of chronic inflammation in cats are inflammatory bowel disease (diarrhea and vomiting), dermatomyositis (skin and coat), and arthritis (joints). Catit Nuna contains specific omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, to reduce the risk and intensity of chronic inflammation.
Is Catit Nuna approved by pet food nutritionists?
Absolutely! The composition of Catit Nuna was determined with great care by specialised cat nutritionists.
Is Catit Nuna suited for cats with allergies, diabetes, or urinary tract problems?
If your cat has a medical condition, always consult your veterinarian or cat nutritionist before changing their diet, to ensure that you make the best choice for your cat.
