Why is there so much liquid in the cup?
Cats crave moisture, the moisture level in our wet cat food was determined to be the optimal level for cat acceptance and enjoyment through a variety of feeding studies.

Why is there a yellow coloration to the sauce?
The yellow color comes from palm oil and paprika in certain recipes. Both palm oil, a natural vegetable oil, and paprika are used for color and flavor. The yellow color is completely natural and safe. Because Nutrish® Wet Cat Foods do not contain any artificial colors or preservatives, a natural separation of ingredients may occur. As a comparison example, think about how the oils separate in natural peanut butter spreads that you may enjoy. For the Nutrish® Cat Foods, simply shake the cup of food, watch the palm oil mix back into the savory sauce, watch your cat enjoy the tasty recipe, and rest assured that she's eating a high-quality, safe food.
