Most puppy parents think they're making good choices by feeding their dogs the brand-name kibble they see on TV. But the truth is, commercial kibble contains overwhelming amounts of one of the worst ingredients for your dog's health...starch.
Starches are empty carbs that turn into sugary glucose inside your dog's body, and too much glucose not only packs on the extra pounds, but can also alter brain function and lead to diabetes or even cancer. So, if studies continue to show the negative effects of empty carbohydrates on our dogs, why is starch still used so heavily when making kibble?
Because in order to keep it's shape, kibble relies on starch to be a binder...because without it, you'd be buying a bag of over-heated, crumbly powder.
