Price: $0.30 per ounce

We recommend this food as one of the best options for cats with diabetes, which says a  lot about its carbohydrate content. It’s one of the lowest-carbohydrate foods on the market. Unlike a lot of other Fancy Feast foods, this flaked recipe doesn’t have any artificial colors or flavors.

It’s primarily made from ocean fish and shrimp. Ocean fish is a vague name assigned to a variety of fish species used in cat food. They’re often cheap fish not suitable for human consumption, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not nutritious ingredients in cat food.

The food is thickened with guar gum and fortified with synthetic vitamins and amino acids.
