Applaws is a grace to our supermarket shelves. If you shop in Woolworths this is likely your best option, and it stacks up well in Coles as well.
For this review we’ll focus on the Chicken formula, but the Ocean Fish with Salmon is on par. Let’s take a look…
We find a whopping 37% protein and 20% fat in the food which is excellent. It assures us minimal carbs, and given cats are obligate carnivores they definitely don’t need carbs. Other brands inflate protein with vegetables and corn, but there’s none of that trickery here as the bulk of the food is dried chicken meal and chicken mince. Great!
We find potato as the 3rd ingredient, but the composition would suggest this is kept to a minimum. This won’t provide much benefit to cats but all kibble needs a starch to bind it, and it’s better to see potato than allergenic cereal grains like wheat.
There aren’t any nasties in the food, and some of the less prominent ingredients like kelp/seaweed, and cranberry are nice to see. Another bonus is they use rosemary extract as a natural preservative which will be far healthier than ambiguous chemicals used in cheap products.
Overall this is a really good cat food and it’s nice to see it readily available in our supermarkets. Recommended.
