The research has been completed and the results will anger some fast food executives. If nutrition and good health ring your bell, then forget about some of your favorite fast food dining options and pour yourself a bowl of less fatty pet food.
Loads of pet food brands scored better than dishes served by High Street chains in research to measure fat, salt and sugar levels.
Nutrition experts discovered that Gourmet Gold cat food has just 2.9g of fat per 100g – a mouth-watering EIGHT TIMES less than the percentage found in pieces of KFC.
The level of fat was also far lower than a McDonald’s Big Mac and a Pizza Hut meal. The lab tests by nutrition experts discovered that Cesar dog food uses just 4.4g of fat in every 100g – and has lower salt and sugar levels than many dishes served to humans.
Researchers found that KFC chicken pieces were the unhealthiest fast food on test. They contained 23.2g of fat per 100g and 1.9g of salt. Unbelievably, ADDING fries cut the fat and salt levels, with them falling to 12g and 0.7g per 100g.
Scooter has always been begging to eat the same food as the rest of our family. However, he would be disappointed if we accomplished that goal by switching over to his bland fare.
