Review: Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat

Are you curious about what Polish cat food producers have to offer? This time we tested the cat food of the well-known Polish brand Super Benek. Did she rise to the challenge? In this post, you will learn my detailed analysis, test results, and thoughts on Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat.

Few words about Super Benek

The Super Benek brand is known for its wide range of cat litter. Did you know that it also produces pet food? One of these foods is Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat in the meat content.

My tests and analysis

Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat consists of at least 70% meat and offal and doesn’t contain grains, preservatives, and dyes. Currently, this food line offers 3 flavor options in cans of 195g. Available flavors:

  • turkey with duck,
  • lamb with poultry,
  • beef with poultry.

Price (rounded): 3.5 PLN for 195g cans

Smell and consistency

The consistency reminds me of the ones we use every day – it is really moist and nicely compacted. All flavor variants have a distinct and quite pleasant aroma.

Composition of Super Benek 100% Fresh meat

The manufacturer states that the Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat in the meat content is a complete food. I will check if it is the complete basis of a daily and balanced diet.

Composition : meat and offal in total 70% (fresh duck meat and offal min. 32%, fresh turkey meat and offal min. 30%, pork offal) rice flour, sodium chloride, calcium carbonate.

Analytical composition: crude protein: 8.5%, fat content: 6.5%, crude fiber: 0.4%, crude ash: 2.5%, moisture: 79%

Additives per kg : Vitamin D3 240 IU, Vit. E- 25mg, Taurine- 400mg, Zinc as zinc oxide: 20 mg, copper as copper (II), sulfate pentahydrate: 1.0 mg, iodine as calcium iodate – anhydrous: 0.75mg. Technological additive: Cassia gum: 2500 mg *

* Cassia gum is obtained from the endosperm of the seeds of Senna obtusifolia and Senna tora plants and has a thickening and gelling function.

My calculations of analytical components in d.m.

The composition of all three flavors is very similar, so I will use the taste of Turkey with duck to calculate the content of macronutrients in food.

Protein

40,5%

Fat

31%

Carbohydrate

3 %

Taurine

400 mg/kg

Comprehensive composition analysis

Advantages

  • The food does not contain artificial colors or preservatives.
  • Clear and legible composition.
  • Food does not contain grains.
  • The composition has no added vegetables and fruits.
  • The feed consists of fresh meat and offal (does not contain animal by-products)

Disadvantages

  • The amount of taurine is too small for domestic feed.
  • The composition contains thickeners: rice flour and cassia gum.
  • Currently, food is only available in the form of 195 gram cans
  • There is no mono-protein option.

My opinion about Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat

In my opinion, if Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat would form the basis of a daily diet then it would be necessary to supplement taurine because 400mg / kg is definitely not enough. In its present form, it will be a complementary or emergency food for cats.

My cat’s opinion

The consistency of feeds is very similar to those that Apollo usually eats. He liked beef and poultry the most – he licked a good minute after eating a meal.
