Okay everyone...here are the Authority ingredients:

Chicken Meal, Brewers Rice, Ground Corn, Chicken, Animal Fat preserved with Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols), Corn Gluten Meal, Rice Flour, Natural Flavor, Dried Beet Pulp, Dicacalcium Phosphate, Dried Egg Product, Canola Oil, Potassium Chloride, Corn Oil, Choline Chloride, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-polyphophate (source of ascorbic acid), Copper Sulfate, Vitamin A Supplement, Manganese Sulfate, Niacin, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin, Calcium Iodate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamin Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Sodium Selenite, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement.



Overall I believe there are more corn/rice products than Nutro. Also , Nutro has probiotics in their food...a big PLUS!!! :D

Most flavors of Authority canned food are fine. The adult dry food is better than grocery store brands, though still *loaded* with corn and carbs. However, the light and senior dry foods are worse; not recommended.

IF YOU ARE AGAINST THE ANIMAL TESTS THAT IAMS DID....DO NOT FEED AUTHORITY CANNED FOOD!!!

Authority canned food is made by Menu Foods. Menu Foods supported Iams in conducting the cruel tests on cats & dogs :cry: Menu Foods makes the Authority canned food, but not the dry.

Take Care,
Abhay

P.S. Yes, that is the dry food.

Didn't know that. Thanks for that info. I was feeding the Authority can to my kitten, but won't buy it now.
