#6 Go Au Natural
Feeding your cat food labeled “natural” means that none of the ingredients have been chemical altered, according to FDA guidelines. Hooray! But what about food labeled only “holistic?” Leave it at the store, says Hughes. Since there is no legal definition for this term, it likely won’t have much impact on your cat’s diet.
For organic options, check the package for an official USDA label. If the seal says "organic" it must contain at least 95% organic ingredients, not counting added water or salt. If it says "Made With Organic Ingredients" it must contain at least 70% organic ingredients, not counting added water or salt.
If a manufacturer wants to show that a product has some organic ingredients, but they make up less than 70% of the total, it can denote those ingredients as “organic” in the ingredient list, but no seal is used.
