CatFoodDB: Decoding nutrition labels so you don't have to!
Whole Paws is Whole Food's house brand of pet foods. The brand is sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market, and occasionally via resellers on Amazon.com. According to their website, Whole Paws cat food products are premium pet food with added vitamins and minerals, and no animal by-products.
Because Whole Foods does not publish their pet food products nutritional information online, the values shown for the products reviewed below were taken from product imagery. Although we try our best to be as accurate as possible, inconsistencies may occur. Additionally, the list below may not represent the full line up of products available under the Whole Paws label as not all information is available from online sources.
Overall, with 5 varieties reviewed producing an average score of 5.2 / 10 paws, Whole Paws is a below average overall cat food brand when compared to all others brands in our database.
However, due to the nature of their ingredient composition dry foods typically score less than wet foods on average. Hence, it's often helpful to break down the ratings into wet and dry food categories in order to get a more complete understanding of how the brand rates.
Of these 5 products, 3 are wet foods. These wet foods scored on average 5.7 / 10 paws, making Whole Paws a below average wet cat food brand when compared against all other wet food manufacturer's products.

At CatFoodDB, we calculate two ratings for each product. These values are then combined to create the the overall product score.
The first rating is based on the product's ingredient list. Each cat food product is assigned a value from (low) to (high) paws. Generally speaking, higher ratings are rewarded to those products that contain quality proteins and limit the amount of cheap fillers in their most plentiful ingredients.
The second rating is based on our analysis of the product's published nutritional information. Higher rated products will contain more protein and fewer carbohydrates than average. Each product is assigned a score from to paws based on this nutritional analysis. Please note that the nutritional values used are only an approximation and may not represent "as fed" values due to variations in manufacturing and the laws that specify how these values are reported.
Finally, the nutrition and ingredient ratings are added together to create a score ranging from 1 - 10 paws for the evaluated product.
Please note that although a high score may be indicative of a higher-quality product it is not a guarantee. Similarly, a low score does not necessarily indicate an inferior product. The best food for your cat is the one that meets their individual needs.
