New cat food from company Yora.
Sustainable pet food business Yora has introduced its first cat food. Yora Complete for Adult Cats is created from a blend of insect flour derived from the larvae of the black soldier fly. Insect protein is a BVA-approved alternative to traditional meats, is highly digestible and, compared with chicken or salmon, exhibits ‘strong antioxidant activity’. Other ingredients in Yora’s food for felines include brewer’s yeast and fibrous veg along with 3% insect oil.
TV vet Dr James Greenwood said: “Yora is a healthy, high-protein alternative to kibbles made from conventional meats. It contains all the nutrients your cat needs to stay healthy – including added taurine, which is essential in a cat’s diet.
New research commissioned by Yora found that 87% of cat owners say their cat chases and eats insects, with more than a third (34%) saying they see their cat do this very frequently or often. A similar proportion (36%) think insects are a normal part of a cat’s diet.
