Scrumptious From Scratch recipes have large shredded cuts of meat or flaked seafood with no mechanically deboned meat (MDM) and no meat byproducts. The cat formulas are grain free, gluten free, carrageenan free and feature human grade-meats. They contain no corn or wheat, no animal by-products, and are free of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

The resulting product is a blend primarily consisting of tissues not generally considered meat along with a much smaller amount of actual meat (muscle tissue). In some countries such as the United States, these non-meat materials are processed separately for human and non-human uses and consumption. The process is controversial and a “not-so-appetizing meat production process”.
