I am not sure the AAFCO's definition of meat protein isolate is quite the same as the type of protein isolate you are referring to for human consumption.

Also if you look up the type of powdered cellulose used in pet foods, it is usually made from wood (tree) pulp.

I bought the SD grain free only because of a coupon and a free rebate. I am NOT a big fan of SD and usually buy Wellness, Before Grain. I try not to feed my cats too much dry. One cat becomes an addict, the other had serious health issues earlier this year, and I had to feed her what she would eat (sometimes dry).
Anyway, Mimi-the dry addict-would not eat the SD food.big laughCaroline, the other cat, ate it just fine. Mimi will eat her wet food now!

I've only fed science diet on a short term, and only the wet stuff to get a certain fuzzy eating again. That stuff can be pungent! My vet compared it to the saltines and ginger ale you ate when you were sick as a kid; not something you do as a regular diet choice, but you have to get SOMETHING in there. Granted, my vets have been more enlightened than others.

I agree with the OP. There are a few other brands that are still junky despite the label.

That is true when a cat is sick it's more important to get them to eat SOMETHING rather than trying to hold out for them to each something better.
