What is the difference between hypoallergenic food and a health food?

A health food such as TROVET Adult/MXF is not suitable as hypoallergenic diet. A characteristic of hypoallergenic diets is that these consist out of one carbohydrate source and one protein source. For example: TROVET Hypoallergenic (Rabbit) contains rabbit and rice. TROVET Adult/MXF (cat) contains chicken, fish, pork, corn, and rice. Often more exclusive ingredients are used to provide a patient with its requirements. A healthy pet can always get hypoallergenic food, but a patient with an allergy cannot always get ‘regular’ food.
