Nutrish by Rachael Ray (Beef and Brown Rice)
Rating: | Price: $$ | Website
Rachael Ray sure drives a hard sell, since she’s a chef herself and proclaims that she wouldn’t make any food that she wouldn’t feed her own dog Isaboo. The problem is, like many other people in America, Ms. Ray apparently doesn’t hold her food up to that high of a standard.
It starts out well enough, with beef and chicken meal being the first two ingredients. I was actually rather hopeful after that, though I should have known that a food sold at Target for a relatively cheap price probably wasn’t going to hold up. Alas, it falls apart quickly. Brewers rice, which is the leftover part of the rice devoid of the bran after the brewing process, is 3rd. We see corn mentioned twice, when once is really bad enough. Soybeans are present as well. The only “no no” grain they didn’t include was wheat.
The thing that’s sad is that the advertising for this food says this food has “no fillers”. Really?? Corn isn’t a filler?? Soybeans?? Sigh.
Where to buy?
What’s good about this food….
Meat as first two ingredients.
….and what’s not so good.
Brewers rice as 3rd ingredient, abundant use of corn and soybeans, “animal fat” is often a term used to hide the source.
