Hi guys,

I was looking at fussie cat today, they seem to have expanded their formulas to include chicken formulas, and came across this in the ingredients list.  A quick search links it to both a type of fiber and high fructose corn syrup.

Does anyone know what this is and how it affects cats?

In the pre-biotic family. Found a link that explains further (even though they are selling a product, still useful info)

Fussie Cat brand is the absolute favorite around here, paws down......we feed the chicken with vegetables (no rice)

I am inclined to trust this particular brand regarding ingredients, more than not.
