MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR CAT’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different-looking cats’, the internal workings of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meats that cats have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a cat’s natural diet.
Your cat is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single-hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic cats are anatomically designed to break down protein and fat from meat.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Ranchlands with 75% meat from ranch-raised beef, grass-fed lamb, Yorkshire pork, ranch-raised bison, and wild-caught walleye.
Free of grains or gluten, ACANA derives its rich protein content from animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your cat completely.
We use meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why ½ of the meat and fish in ACANA are fresh, and 1/2 are dried or oils, to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
Consider the variety in the natural diet: eggs today, a duck or goose tomorrow, fresh fish the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of cats.
That’s why ACANA Ranchlands features a diversity of ranch-raised beef, grass-fed lamb, Yorkshire pork, ranch-raised bison, and wild-caught walleye in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mimic the natural diet.
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole animals to perfectly meet your cat’s needs. Muscle meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that deliver nutrients in highly bio-available forms, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
Your cat has no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates and his natural diet contains very few, if any. Carbohydrates are widely recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes, yet conventional cat foods often exceed 50% carbohydrate content.
That’s why ACANA limits total carbohydrate content and replaces fast digesting carbohydrates like rice, tapioca and potato with healthy, farm-fresh vegetables and fruit, such as squash and apples. These enter the blood stream slowly, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing the potential for fat storage.
