I would choose Natural Balance if I had to pick one. The corn and wheat in the RC turns me off. There are other factors, but that's the first one.
My cats eat the canned Natural Balance, in addition to other brands.

I'm not sure which RC formula you're referring to, but I looked at Beauty+Fit against NB Ultra (original formula). The numbers (protein+fat) are almost the same. When it comes to fiber...The RC has an excessive amount IMO, 8.5%, while the NB seems more reasonable at 3%. I'll admit I'm sort of confused at the "correct" way to estimate
carb content, but it seems if we leave the fiber out of the equation then the 2 foods are almost equal (using the inaccurate guar. analysis values). The fiber can't be coming from chicken.
Just my take on things.
