Nutrience Dry Cat Foods
In this blog post, we’ll be comparing the differences between the three ranges of Nutrience cat food and how they measure up to each other, and then, more specifically reviewing Nutrience Sub Zero dry cat food.
Nutrience cat food is the newest range of dry cat food to make its entrance in the local cat food scene. With its launch, Nutrience brings to our shores a total of three ranges of its dry cat food – Nutrience Original, Nutrience Grain Free and Nutrience Sub Zero. Each of these ranges is formulated based on the same ideals and beliefs, to suit cats with different needs and more importantly, cat owners on varying budgets!
Nutrience Original Dry Cat Food
Nutrience Original is the basic, entry level dry cat food under the brand’s ranges. It is formulated based on the simple belief of an uncomplicated, affordable dry cat food. Nutrience Original is made with no by-products, and is comparable to large brand names such as Royal Canin, Science Diet and ANF in terms of formulation.
Nutrience Grain Free Dry Cat Food
Nutrience Grain Free is Nutrience’s top of the line dry cat food range. Second only to its latest successor; the Sub Zero range, Nutrience Grain Free uses fresh, premium ingredients for a wholesome diet suited to our pets. Not only does this range use no by-products, it also chooses to use low glycemic carbohydrates in place of conventional choices such as potatoes, which contain high amounts of sugar – Making it a worthy opponent of Orijen and Acana dry cat food.
Nutrience Sub Zero Dry Cat Food
Nutrience Sub Zero cat food is a grain-free, protein-rich, low-glycemic dry food diet for cats. This range of foods is unique in that they contain the company’s proprietary NUTRIBOOST freeze-dried raw nuggets. With the increase in popularity of freeze-dried foods, Nutrience Sub Zero seeks to address the need for a dry cat food that delivers the nutritional benefits of a raw diet in a convenient and easy to use recipe.
What is NUTRIBOOST?
What Makes Nutrience Sub Zero Dry Cat Food Special?
Nutrience Sub Zero was formulated with the following key differences in mind to differentiate it from its competitors in the premium dry cat food industry. Each of its formulas:
- Is made with higher, real protein content
- Uses fresh, never frozen Canadian protein sources
- Is composed of diverse and numerous animal-based ingredients
- Is composed of diverse and numerous sources of healthy fat
- Contains freeze-dried nuggets
Produced in small batches for superior quality control, the ingredients and formulation of Nutrience Sub Zero makes this dry cat food one of the most premium brands we have ever seen on the Nekojam online pet store in Singapore. We love that the price per bag is tagged to that of Nutrience Grain Free, and that you don’t need to feed as much per serving due to the high protein content, giving us the freedom to switch between ranges every alternate month for maximum price to value ratio.
There is only 1 Nutrience Sub Zero dry cat foods at the moment, and we’ll be reviewing Nutrience Fraser Valley dry cat food.
Nutrience Sub Zero Dry Cat Food Review
Made with fresh, never frozen poultry, wild-caught and real freeze-dried chicken, Nutrience Sub Zero Fraser Valley certainly boasts one of the most comprehensive, meat-rich ingredient lists we’ve ever seen on the Nekojam online pet store in Singapore.
Advantage #1 – High in Fish Protein and Wholesome Ingredients
We were certainly more than shocked to see that the first TWELVE ingredients in the Sub Zero dry cat food formulation were meat-based, and comprised of not just meat meal, but actual meat proteins. The NUTRIBOOST inclusions also include superfoods such as pumpkin, green mussel and cod liver.
Deboned chicken, deboned turkey, chicken meal, turkey meal, salmon, chicken liver, chicken heart, turkey liver, turkey heart, herring, cod, cod liver, whole eggs, peas, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), red lentils, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, natural chicken flavor, sun-cured alfalfa meal, freeze-dried chicken, freeze-dried pumpkin, freeze-dried chicken liver, freeze-dried green mussels, freeze-dried cod liver, freeze-dried kelp, salmon oil, herring oil, coconut oil, pumpkin, butternut squash, carrots, spinach, broccoli, apples, blueberries, cranberries, pomegranate, juniper berry extract, ginger, fennel, chamomile, peppermint leaf, licorice root, turmeric, valerian root, …
Advantage #2 – Rich in Omega Fatty Acids
With the exceptionally high amount of fish protein found in each bag, alongside the addition of healthy oils such as salmon, herring and coconut oil, Nutrience Sub Zero Fraser Valley dry cat food boasts a hefty dose of omega fatty acids.
While we did not plan for this, the paper cards that we used in our photo-taking session for the Nutrience range of cat foods gave us an indication of the amount of healthy oils in each bag. Just leaving the card sitting up in a small pile of kibble resulted in a significant amount of oil being absorbed by the paper.
Question: Why Should I Look for Essential Fats in My Cat’s Food?
Answer: Your cat is unable to produce these healthy fats on their own – They must be found and supplemented through their diets!
Advantage #3 – Low-Glycemic Carbohydrates as Binders
A look at the Nutrience Sub Zero dry cat food ingredient list will reveal that the brand chooses to use low-glycemic carbohydrates in its formulas; such as sweet potatoes, red lentils and chickpeas. These carbohydrates result in stable blood sugar levels and keep illnesses like obesity, cancer and diabetes at bay, which also makes Nutrience an optimal choice for cats with weight issues.
Advantage #4 – Added Fruit, Vegetables, Botanicals and Prebiotics/Probiotics
An excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, these added ingredients work together to help your cat’s body work smoothly, contributing to gut health, strengthened immunity and supporting heart and immune functions.
Advantage #5 – Superior Palatability Through Freeze-Dried Cat Food
We were pleasantly surprised to see that the bag of Nutrience Fraser Valley we had opened contained a significant amount of freeze-dried NUTRIBOOST nuggets. Each scoop we took had a good balance of dry cat kibble and freeze-dried cubes, and smelled strongly of fish. Compared to normal dry cat foods, we can see how this is definitely more palatable to the discerning, picky feline eater.
How Does Nutrience Dry Cat Food Compare Against One Another?
After opening up bags and bags of mouth watering dry cat food on an empty stomach, we decided to do a quick comparison of the most obvious differences between formulas. 🙂
All the formulas seems to have similar kibble sizes, and are of suitable size for most cats 🙂
