Lifes Abundance

Question:
I'm having trouble understanding the following ingredients as non-starch and natural to a carnivores diet:

Pea Protein, Potato Protein, Apple, Beet Pulp, Plums, Blueberries, Tomato, Oregano Extract, Sage Extract, Rosemary Extract.

Then, can you clarify whether the following are derived from the fish meal and chicken fat?

Probiotic Microorganisms (Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactococcus lactis, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus lactis), Ascorbic Acid, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Manganese Proteinate, Calcium Pantothenate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Copper Proteinate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Acetate, Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement.

It appears obvious that all of the above followed by the word "supplement" are not derived from the meat products.

You should be able to tell I take the diet of my cats very seriously. I'm completely satisfied with Life's Abundance, but if there is a superior diet available, I certainly want to consider it.

Answer:
Starch is a carbohydrate; it is biochemically totally unlike a protein. Epigen™ has no starches--unlike the food you are currently using--that is the point of the product.

The probiotics are grown (fermented) on substrates, specifically for the purpose of food use. They are not derived/extracted from fish or other sources. Please note that the use of probiotics in a dry extruded pet food without special licensing, as in the product you are using, is a violation of patent laws.

The vitamins and minerals are produced synthetically or through fermentation, as are all vitamin supplements and fortifiers. Some are contained in the fish and chicken fat.
