BE AWARE: Terrible Ingredients in Your Pet’s Food… FYI Pet food is made mostly from scraps from human food manufacture — examples, animal products that are unwanted or are condemned for human use. The cheaper label pet foods can be the culprit, as they contain the lowest-quality ingredients.

This occurs when the consumer can only afford to buy inexpensive pet food. Animal fat, a.k.a. tallow, is a product of rendering. In the rendering process, parts, pieces and whole animals are put through an enormous grinder, boiled in vats for 30 minutes or many hours.

Molds, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens are killed by high heat. During the boiling process, fat separates, floats to the top, where it is skimmed off and used in industrial lubricants, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and pet food.

Animal fat and MBM (Meat and bone meal) might come from an assortment of animal sources, restaurant waste, dead farm livestock, expired supermarket meat, and, second-hand grease from deep-fat fryers.
