5. Kibbles ‘n Bits® Homestyle Grilled Beef & Vegetable Flavors Dog Food
This chef’s choice homestyle recipe looks pretty tempting from what you see on the front of the bag. Fresh grilled steak with vegetable are pictured next to the multi-color kibble. The multi-color kibble has no additional health benefits for your dog. The vibrant kibble appears healthier and it sells. Multi-color kibble is usually made up of dyes and artificial colors.
Corn is the main ingredient in Kibbles ’n Bits Homestyle Grilled Beef & Vegetables, not real grilled beef. In fact, the real main meat source is actually beef & bone meal when you read the ingredient list. Beef is the #14 ingredient and is not considered a main ingredient.
Wheat middling fillers, unspecified animal fat laced with BHA preservative, artificial flavors, artificial colors and animal digest (source of grilled flavor) is also found in this 1 star dry dog food. To make matters even worse, the formula also includes corn syrup and propylene glycol. Dogs should avoid these 2 ingredients at all costs.
