Commercial brand products - Ingredients/Preservatives

  • WHAT’S A BY-PRODUCT?  - On almost all brands, you may notice one of the major ingredients listed is “by-products”. By-products are basically defined as “parts other than meat.” These may include internal organs not commonly eaten by humans, such as lungs, spleens, and intestines, other parts such as cow udders and uteri, and in the case of poultry by-products, heads, beaks and feet. Pet food manufacturers fail to mention that other substances are also included: spoiled slaughterhouse meat, road kill, downer animals, ear tags, cancerous material cut away from the carcass and styrofoam packaging containing spoiled meat from supermarkets.
     
  • Propylene Glycol - This compound, known to cause illness in dogs is also used to maintain the right texture and moisture and to tie up the water content, thus inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Documented research shows that it causes hematologic abnormalities, central nervous system depression and kidney damage.
     

  • Propyl Gallate - Manufacturers add this chemical to retard spoilage but it is suspected of causing liver damage.
     

  • Potassium Sorbate - A commonly used preservative that is chemically similar to fat.
     

  • Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) - This poorly tested preservative is implicated by some scientists as a cause of liver damage, metabolic stress, fetal abnormalities and serum cholesterol increase. It is also associated with esophageal cancer.
     

  • Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA) - Both BHA and BHT have been shown to depress the immune system by lowering the body's white blood cell count and to inhibit the absorption of glucose, a process that is critical to normal body functions. It has been associated with stomach and urinary cancer.
     

  • Ethoxyquin (EQ) - Originally developed for use in the production of rubber, this common preservative is among the compounds suspected of causing severe health problems in dogs. It has also been used as an insecticide and pesticide.
     

  • Sodium Nitrate - This compound is widely used as both a preservative and a red colouring agent. Sodium nitrate used in food can produce powerful carcinogenic substances known as nitrosamines.
