Cachet (ALDI)

Country of originThailand
Available fromALDI

Simple fact – cats are carnivores. Meat eaters.

So why is the main ingredient in this product corn meal? If that isn’t ominous enough, the next ingredient is rice, and then tapioca. Does that sound completely wrong to you, because it does to me.

Cats eat to satiate their need for meat and meat proteins, so they’ll consume hard to digest ingredients to extract what they really need. We find meat ingredients in the 4th and 5th spot, but given ingredients are listed in order of percentage it’s likely a small quantity.

The product contains food colourings. That’s a red flag. It also contains ambiguous “preservatives” which we can assume are cheaper, chemical inclusions.

Cachet is a French word, suggesting a prestigious product. This product is far from prestigious.

Products such as this are appealing on price tag. They’re not formulated for the health and well being of your cat.
