Carbs are Important but Protein is the Main Ingredient in Your Cats Food

Monday, February 15, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

The meals eaten by a wild cat contain very few carbohydrates. and that is less than 5% of the total calories consumed.That carbohydrate level works because a cat is able to convert protein into fuel for energy. However, the cat can utilize carbs as a fuel source as well, especially if they break down easily and are easy to digest. Cereal grains such as rice corn and wheat are some of the most highly digestible carbohydrates which is why they are one of the main ingredients in commercial cat food. They are relatively cheap especially when they are compared to the prices of proteins. It’s because of the carbs in your cats food that she gets a sufficient source of energy and you can keep her well fed without spending a fortune. Always remember that protein is the main ingredient.
