New Zealand scientists say commercial cat food might give domestic cats much less lysine than thought.
The researchers found older, traditional tests
significantly overestimate the amount of nutritionally available lysine. “This
overestimate ranged from 41% to 143% for the moist food and from 18% to 90% for
the dry foods,” the scientists said.
The study appears in the May 2 issue
of the American Chemical Society’s Journal of
Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
