Our Nutrition Philosophy
WHY CHOOSE BLUE?
When we promised our boy Blue we’d create the healthiest food we possibly could, we made that same promise to you and your cat. Our team of veterinarians and animal nutritionists carefully selects only the highest quality natural ingredients for every recipe we make. And our True BLUE Promise assures that real meat is the first ingredient in all our foods, which contain NO poultry by-product meals, NO corn, wheat, or soy, and NO artificial flavors or preservatives. The result is a portfolio of foods and treats that we’d be proud to feed Blue, and we hope you’d feel proud to feed your best friend, too.

Exclusive Antioxidant-Rich LifeSource Bits™
BLUE's exclusive LifeSource Bits are a precise blend of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals carefully selected by veterinarians and animal nutritionists that help support:
- Immune system health
- Life stage requirements
- Healthy oxidative balance
And LifeSource Bits are cold-formed to help retain the potency of their ingredients. This means that we minimize the amount of heat that LifeSource Bits are exposed to during the manufacturing process. It’s the same concept as when you cook vegetables at high heat — the longer you do, the more heat-sensitive nutrients are lost.Learn More
