    Hi,

    I just calculated the carb % in the Sheba chicken & turkey pouches (the version sold in Mexico) with a carb calculator and it shows only 2.5% carb. Their website also says it has 0.10% phosphorus, which I think is less than 200 grams per 100 Kcal (?).

    Here's the web page with the nutritional info:

    I know foods with gravy are higher in carbs, but this one seems to be on the lower side. It's also low in phos. Can someone tell me if this is accurate? Has anyone tried them?

    That's the guaranteed analysis. You want to find out the phosphorus on a dry matter basis.

    I can tell you their perfect portions with gravy is 1.8 phosphorus.

    Try emailing the manufacturer.
