Synthetic Vitamins & Minerals Are A Common Reason for Pet Food Recalls

Nature’s Logic uses NO chemically-synthesized vitamins, minerals or amino acids. All nutrients in their diets come from whole foods and 100% natural ingredients.

Most pet food makers add up to 26 chemically-synthesized vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in order to meet nutrient profiles established by The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). This is because the food itself does not contain enough necessary nutrients. You will know this when you see “with added vitamins and minerals” on the packaging. However, these added nutrients are man-made and contain potential risks for pets. A number of pet food recalls in recent years have been due to excessive or not enough synthetic nutrients in the food. These recalls are life-threatening and even cause death in animals.

Even when there isn’t an error in the vitamin and mineral mixture, man-made nutrients contain processing aids and carriers, and many also contain chemical preservatives. Many fat-soluble vitamins, such as A, D, E, and K, often contain the chemical preservative BHT. Further, most of the man-made mineral supplements are by-products of the metal industries and are allowed by AAFCO to have certain levels of heavy metals such as cadmium, arsenic, lead, mercury, and others. In addition, nearly every one of those synthetic vitamins and minerals are made in China.  Make sure you know what is in your pets food…read the label!  Find out more about pet food ingredients next week in our pet power newsletter.
