It’s official, sort of: According to one study, pet food is healthier than many fast foods.
Nutrition experts who compared 30 human meals with 15 pet foods discovered that Gourmet Gold cat food, with 2.9 grams of fat per 100 grams, was eight times less fatty than pieces of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) which had 23.2 grams of fat per 100 grams and 1.9 grams of salt.
Scientist John Searle, from the Global food-testing lab in Burton upon Trent, says “â€œIt would not do a human any harm to eat this cat and dog food. It would be categorised in the green or amber levels. But some convenience foods would fall in the red or unhealthy category.â€
