Soy - Is This Phantom Ingredient on Your Pet Food's Label?

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • Soy in pet food, which was all the rage just a few years ago, has experienced a significant decline in popularity due to concerns about its appropriateness for dogs and cats
  • Most U.S. varieties of soy are genetically modified, and the plants are also high in antinutrients (natural toxins) and phytoestrogens
  • Raw, mature soybeans also contain phytates that prevent mineral absorption and substances that block the enzymes needed to digest protein
  • Captive cheetahs fed soy suffered fatal liver disease and infertility; parrots fed soya beans suffered early puberty, infertility, and premature aging and death
  • In dogs and cats, soy has been linked to gas and bloat, bladder stones, blood sugar fluctuations, thyroid damage and seizures
