Animal proteins

Why does the packaging show the percentage of animal protein?

There are two types of protein – animal and plant proteins

Animal proteins are a more efficient source of protein for the cat (carnivore) compared to plant proteins.

Animal proteins contain all the essential amino acids necessary for the proper functioning and development of the body, and therefore their proportion in the food should be as high as possible.

The level of animal protein in our food exceeds 68% and this packaging information indicates that most protein in our food comes from animals, not plants (e.g. peas). What does the percentage mean then?

This is best illustrated on the example below:

“Delicious” contains 72% animal protein. This means that animal protein makes 72% of the total protein content in the food (34%).
