A Close Look at the Ingredients

Propylene glycol is actually approved by the FDA and it is used in foods for humans and dogs. There has also been much criticism about the dyes that are used in the Beneful brand. These are dyes that add much color to the dog food. The colors are very appealing to people, yet, dogs do not seem to have a preference regarding their colorful food.
