List of carrageenan free canned cat foods
« Reply #15 on: January 29, 2014, 04:53:43 AM »
I'm planning to keep an updated list stickied in this sub forum.  Please feel free to add any foods you come across to this thread and I will add it to this list in the first post, for easy access.

What I hope to to do with this thread is provide a cross reference link in this thread to the food being discussed in our discussion of brands forum, whenever available.  But it will be slow work.

I will be keeping them in alphabetical order. Since some brands have different lines, some with, some without carrageenan I will of course be only listing formulas that do NOT.

NOTE: These are not foods I am specifically recommending, I may or may not feed them to my own cats.  These are just foods that, at last ingredient check, do not contain carrageenan.

(the list is short this morning, just want to get things started)

Nature's Variety Instinct:

chicken
rabbit
duck
(those are the only ones I feed, so the lamb, beef, etc. may also be carageenan-free, but I don't know off-hand)

All of the Nature's Variety canned cat products seem to be carageenan free.

Tiki Cat: Koolina Luau and Puka-puka Luau don't have carageenan (neither do the other flavors, but they are fish based).

Hound and Gatos

Pure Vita

Addiction: Duck, Venison, Buffalo, Rabbit, and Turkey formulas do not have carageenan.

Soulistic: Good Karma and Harvest sunrise do not have carageenan (there are other  carageenan-free flavors but those contain menadione)

Great Life Essentials

Life's Abundance Instinctive Choice Canned

Blue Buffalo: Wild Delights and Blue Bistro are carageenan free

Wellness: Healthy Indulgence pouches - Chicken and Chicken Liver, Turkey and Chicken, Chicken and Duck. Signature Selects - CHUNKY varieties do not contain carageenan. The Chunky Turkey in White Meat Chicken and Sauce is the only one that also does not contain fish. The SHREDDED signature selects DO have carageenan, so be careful.

Fromm: Duck & Chicken Pate is carageenan free. So are the 3 other flavors, but those contain fish.

Weruva also appears to be free of carrageenan. The fish and seafood flavors have menadione, but the chicken and beef flavors do not.

I haven't even begun to work on that list really. I want to keep an updated list in the first post, then anyone wanting further info can read on in the thread for opinions on the various foods listed if they want.  I'm sorry it's taking so long.  I just don't have much energy for the computer at night after being on it all day long at work, it's tax season and the mail with tax payments is overwhelming.  Sorry you guys.

Noooooooooo worries.  You can update the list (original post) if and when you WANT to.  I just added a new food, and noticed there were two threads going... so I merged them.

Thanks, Amber.
Had to put them in alphabetical order.  I tend to be OCD-ish.  :)

I just don't understand why companies change formulas. It's like something doesn't have soy in it one day, and the next thing it does. Why do they do this to pet owners who probably don't read the labels again after they've deemed a food to be safe for their pet, so they don't know it's been changed. Big companies suck!
