Review: Real Nature wet cat food (MAXI Zoo)

Review: Real Nature wet cat food (MAXI Zoo)

CIs Real Nature a good wet cat food? I looked at the composition in detail and I already know it, and you will find out from this review! Real Nature is one of the wet foods that I have been asked many times about reviews, so I finally bought it, tried it, and am ready to share my opinion.

You suggest, and I test!

Some time ago, I asked my social media followers (Instagram and Facebook), what brands of cat food they would like me to test. The review of Real Nature cat food took me several months to complete, as some of the requested flavors were unavailable in my stationary MAXI Zoo for a long time. Follow me on social media so you don’t miss the next review in this series.

Composition and analysis of Real Nature wet cat food

The analysis of the composition of each analyzed Real Nature pet food is available in a separate tab below. I analyzed the composition of all the flavor variants suggested for testing by my Instagram @apollo.fluffy.cat and Facebooka. To make it clearer, I divided them into groups: Classic Adult, Wilderness Adult and Kitten.

Real Nature Classic Adult

  • Real Nature Classic Adult – Lamb and beef with sweet potatoes and corn
  • Real Nature Classic Adult (Paté) – Turkey and chicken with carrots, apples and walnut oil
  • Real Nature Classic Adult (Paté) – Poultry with prawns, seaweed and sesame oil
  • Real Nature Classic Adult (Paté) – Wild rabbit and poultry with rice and linseed oil

Food composition from the label

Ingredients: 33% lamb (hearts, livers, lungs, rumen), 33% beef (hearts, meat, lungs, livers), 29% drinking water, 2% sweet potatoes, 2% corn, 1% minerals.

Additives per kg : Vitamin D3 200 IU, Vitamin E 20 mg, taurine 1500 mg, iodine (calcium iodate, anhydrous) 0.75 mg, manganese (manganese (II) sulfate, monohydrate) 1.4 mg, zinc (zinc sulfate, monohydrate) 25 mg.

Analytical composition : Protein 10.9%, fat content 7.6%, crude ash 2.2%, crude fiber 0.5%, calcium 0.25%, phosphorus 0.22%, moisture 75%

My simple composition analysis

  • There is no information on the exact breakdown of the meat percentage between meat and offal.
  • Lamb rumen – In ruminants (sheep, cows, etc.) the stomach is multi-chambered and the rumen is one of its elements that allows digesting cellulose from vegetation.
  • Vegetables make up 4% of the feed and are an unnecessary plant clog.

Comprehensive composition analysis

Content of meat and offal

Most Real Nature pet foods do not include the exact breakdown of meat percentages for skeletal meat and offal (there is a real risk that offal has a distinct advantage). Only 3 of the 16 foods tested by me have the meat content on the label:

  • Real Nature Wilderness Adult – Pure Chicken
  • Real Nature Wilderness Adult – Pure Turkey
  • Real Nature Wilderness Adult – Pure Salmon

In two of them, meat accounts for 30% of the meat content (i.e. about 20% of the total food content), and offal constitutes 70% of the meat content (i.e. about 50% of the total food content). The last one (salmon) does not contain any offal and contains meat in the form of fish fillet, which accounts for 68% of the total food content.

As usual in this case, I sent a request to the manufacturer for the missing data, but unfortunately I did not receive any reply. This means that it is uncertain how much meat or offal is in most Real Nature foods.

Why is the correct ratio of meat to offal so important?
Offal is an important part of a cat’s diet, but meat is the main source of essential nutrients. In good food, skeleton meat should have a distinct advantage over offal. Too much offal in the feed can cause diarrhea.

Plant ingredients and other fillers

Virtually every flavor variant of Real Nature foods includes vegetables and fruits, and in several flavors I even came across oatmeal and rice. While such an addition would be welcome in human food, it is completely unnecessary in the case of cat food. Cats are specialized carnivores, so they do not absorb nutrients from plant materials.

Omega fatty acids

Real Nature wet food contains several vegetable oils, but because of the above-described oils, they have little effect on the cat’s body. This means that the food does not contain any animal ingredients that could provide the cat’s organism with polyunsaturated Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Additional supplementation is necessary, for example by adding salmon oil to the food.

Macronutrients

Real Nature is a wet cat food that has a varying amount of carbohydrate that changes from taste to taste. In Real Nature Classic Adult foods carbohydrates range from 6% to 15% bw, in Real Nature Wilderness Adult foods carbohydrates range from 4.13% to 15.71% bw, while in Real Nature Kitten foods carbohydrates range from 3.33% to 5.45% in sm. The increased amount of carbohydrates in dry matter is caused by the presence of a large amount of plant components in the composition of the feed.

The caloric content of Real Nature Classic Adult food is on average 92.3 kcal per 100 grams of food, in the case of Real Nature Wilderness Adult the caloric content is on average 92.2 kcal per 100 grams of food, while in the Real Nature Kitten the caloric content is on average 100.5 kcal per 100 grams of food. 100 grams of feed. (ME calculated according to FEDIAF 2020.)

Taurine level

Real Nature Classic Adult and Real Nature Kitten wet cat foods contain 1500 mg of taurine per 1 kg of food on the packaging. On the other hand, Real Nature Wilderness Adult has from 450 mg to 1500 mg of taurine per 1 kg of feed stated on the package.

Why is the proper taurine content so important?
Cats have a high demand for taurine, which is not an endogenous amino acid, which means that it must be provided in the diet from animal raw materials. Taurine deficiency causes serious health problems with the heart (congestive cardiomyopathy) and the retina of the eye.

Urinary system support

DThe diet of healthy cats and cats with kidney problems should be balanced in terms of calcium to phosphorus, and more precisely their optimal mutual proportions. In healthy cats, the optimal ratio reduces the risk of kidney problems, and in sick cats, it reduces the risk of secondary hyperparathyroidism and osteodystrophy. Real Nature cat wet food has the following calcium to phosphorus ratio:

  • Real Nature Classic Adult ranges from1.13:1 to 1.86:1.
  • Real Nature Wilderness Adult ranges from 1.09:1 to 1.39:1.
  • Real Nature Kitten ranges from 1.03:1 to 1.52:1.

Other information

RReal Nature is a wet food that has a very large variety of flavors and there are several flavor options that do not contain chicken. Unfortunately, despite such a large selection, there are quite a few mono-protein options, and more precisely one line of Pure foods. The food is also available in several sizes of cans and in sachets and trays – although not all flavors from the trays can be found in cans.

Summary: Real Nature wet cat food

Advantages

  • optimal level of proteins and fats in d.m,
  • no dyes and preservatives,
  • a large selection of flavors,
  • several mono-protein options,
  • without cereals and dairy products,

Disadvantages

  • lack of the specified proportion of meat and offal, and in the flavors with the specified composition – the advantage of offal over skeletal meat,
  • unnecessary clogs in the form of vegetables and fruits, and even the presence of rice and oat flakes in several flavors,
  • overestimated carbohydrate levels in many flavors,
  • no zoonotic source of Omega fatty acids.

My opinion about Real Nature wet cat food

Is Real Nature a good wet cat food in my opinion? I believe Real Nature is a fairly average wet food with better and worse flavor variations. On the one hand, it does not contain grains and preservatives, but on the other hand, there are unnecessary vegetable and fruit clogs in all foods, which results in increased carbohydrates. I am also shocked by the lack of specification of the content of meat and offal in most feeds and the lack of salmon oil. The choice of flavors is huge, so I will probably look at a few more in the future.
