    What’s people thoughts on blink food. I see it contains Carrageenan, is this a concern or not worth worrying about.

    I would not feed a food containing carrageenan. However on a search I was unable to find anything with a complete list of ingredients including the fillers. What I saw actually makes the food look pretty good. How do you know they contain carrageenan?

    I saw a post on here, about 30 pages back. The poster said Blink will be looking at removing it in the future. I looked at a free trial and thought I would enquire.

    the reply


    Thanks for getting in touch and for your interest in Blink!

    Our recipes do contain a small amount of Kappa Carrageenan (a variety of Seaweed). There are no thickeners like Cassia or Tapioca in them.

    Don’t worry, Blink is a complete cat food, so there are certain amounts of vitamins, minerals & nutrients that our pouches must contain .

    We can confirm that all vitamins, minerals and nutrients within our food is regulated by the European Pet Food Regulatory Body FEDIAF and have the correct amounts to be classed as a complete meal.

    That's a recent reply? So they use carrageenan but don't put it on the label? Such lack of transparency would keep me away from feeding that food even if I didn't know what I know about carrageenan. And what I know is it's as bad as, if not worse than, cassia or tapioca. Highly inflammatory in the intestines. I would not feed a product that contains it.
