Just to be Fair here's the link so you can't say I pulled it from some Holistic Biased site
Let's go over another thing
Powdered Cellulose Dried wood is the most common source for cellulose (I'm not kidding.). It is cleaned, processed into a fine powder and used to add bulk and consistency to cheap pet foods. I would consider this ingredient appropriate for termites, but certainly not for dogs or cats.

Taken from a previous Infinity post

And then there is Science diet a 1 star food.
Here is what they say about it.

Dogs Are Carnivores by the way not omnivores as you stated before. Why the difference in ingredient lists most web sites I went to vary in the ingredient list some listing BHA and what not as a preservative and som listing mixed tocopherols so when did the change happen?

unles the company can guarentee it in writing with proof there is no real guarentee that it is free of preservatives..the FDA does not require these ongredients be on label as the pet food MFG may not put in the BHT, BHA, EQ or BPA but the companies they get their ingredients from can use them and then boom loophole from saying they actually use those preservatives.

from those ingredients from hills themselves it looks like worse food then ever look at the first few ingredients nothing of nutritional value except flaxseed.

the thing is this guy is getting paid to come on here and try to get people to use his product..that is it. there is no changing his mind he gets paid and most likely doesnt have a pet. i think the main thing to do is make people aware of what science diet really is so that people can make decisions based on the truth by people that dont get paid or benefits from doing so. science diet being forced down peoples throats as a good food by vets who dont know better to clients who really dont know better just irritates me and hopefully by us talking about it somone who may not know the truth about the food may learn a thing or two..
