Boycott Pet Food Brands With This Labelling Trick

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

The processed pet food industry is very focused lately on ways to use beans in dog and cat food

Beans contain phytates and lectins, in addition to being biologically inappropriate for dogs and cats, who are carnivores (meat eaters)

Pet food manufacturers like beans because they are much less expensive than animal meat, but can be used to boost the overall protein content of their formulas

Using a gimmick called ingredient splitting, pet food producers can load up their formulas with biologically inappropriate plant-based ingredients, while still showing meat as the first ingredient

Instead of feeding your pet food that must be extreme-processed to be digestible, opt instead for a nutritionally balanced, species-appropriate, fresh food diet
