3 Reasons Corn is the Perfect Ingredient for Cat Litter

Who doesn’t love corn? We’re talking corn on the cob, popcorn, and all sorts of other food products — like taco shells, cereal, chewing gum and more.

But what about corn for cats? YUP. Corn is actually a great ingredient for litter. Here’s why:

🌽 It’s Safe & Sustainable

Corn comes from the earth and is therefore considered a safe, sustainably grown, and renewable ingredient.

In fact, the USDA projects production of 1.440 billion bushels of corn this year — meaning there will be plenty of this plant-based solution to go around for food, litter, and other uses.

🌽 It’s Pet, People & Planet Friendly

The best part about corn? Growing it is actually good for the planet.

🌽 It’s Naturally Absorbent & Dust Free

Corn can do it all.

Not only is corn super absorbent — so you can soak up and trap odors and liquids — but it also contains no silica dust, meaning no more plumes of dusty air cascading from your litter box.
