Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat wet cat food

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.

Do you know cat food from 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”. The feed consists of at least 70% meat and offal and does not contain grains, preservatives, and dyes. Currently, this food line offers 3 flavor options in cans of 195g.

Tests and analysis

Available flavors:

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

Price (rounded): 3.5 PLN for 195g cans

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

First impression

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.

Lamb with poultry
Beef with poultry

* 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 dry matter

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

Summary

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.

In my opinion

In my opinion, if Super Benek 100% Fresh Meat food 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 feed.

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.

I hope that soon larger packaging, e.g. 400 gram cans and one-component options will be on sale. I will closely follow the development of this product line.

FTC: I received this product for free, but this does not affect the review at all. All reviews on our blog will always reflect my honest and unbiased opinion. Or, as the case may be, my cat Apollo’s honest and unbiased opinion.
