Rad Cat Raw Diet is a premium quality, raw cat food diet made from the finest human-grade meat and organic ingredients. The hearts and livers are purchased whole, and along with the muscle meats and other organs, are partially frozen at the time of processing. This accomplishes two things: First, we know that all our muscle meat is always the rich, dark, flavorful meat that makes the food taste so good. Second, grinding at the time of processing ensures that Rad Cat will stay fresh and wholesome in your refrigerator.
When meat is ground, more surface area is exposed to air and accelerates bacteria growth. In Rad Cat’s processing, whole meat moves from the freezer to processing and back to the freezer as finished product in the shortest time possible. As a result, your cat will eat the freshest, most nutritious cat food available.
In addition to high quality meats, all ingredients are completely human-grade and are organic wherever possible. Feline nutrition is very important and is the foundation of Rad Cat’s food formulations. All of the recommended and required nutrients including Taurine are provided by the whole food ingredients. Remember, when you see added vitamins and minerals on your cat food label, it means they were added because the ‘food’ ingredients were not of high enough quality or do not have the nutrient density to provide those nutrients themselves. These nutrients can be destroyed by over-grinding, over-mixing, or by a high temperature cooking process.
No Veggies or grains are added as fillers. Rad Cat Raw Diet is primarily meat, staying true to your feline carnivore’s evolutionary diet. Cats are obligate carnivores and Rad Cat’s foods are formulated to meet their nutritional needs.
Grains are not a natural part of the feline evolutionary diet. Historically, cats were used to guard grainaries because they would catch mice and not eat the grain. Only in the last 50 years, with the development of the commercial pet food industry, have grains been added to cat and dog foods. Many of these grains used are waste products from large agricultural production facilities.
Many cats are allergic to the grains in their commercial cat food. These allergies can often manifest as skin and digestive disorders. Grains are also a source of carbohydrates, which cats require very little of. The optimal feline diet is one that provides high protein and low carbohydrates. Mother Nature, in her infinite wisdom, designed felines to use protein as their main energy source, rather than carbohydrates. Unfortunately, foods on the market that say they provide ‘high energy’, typically do so by using a grain source. Carbohydrates are a quick source of energy and are burned away very quickly. They are also the cheap and unhealthy solution to providing a dietary energy source.
