First five ingredients Analysis of Beneful Healthy Harvest dog food:

  1. Ground yellow corn
  2. Corn gluten meal
  3. Whole wheat flour
  4. Animal fat
  5. Soy Protein Concentrate
The first ingredient of Beneful Healthy Harvest dog food is Ground Yellow corn. Corn has been linked to many different problems within dogs including yeast infections to allergies. Corn is often difficult for dogs to digest and offers no nutritional value. We usually never recommend a dog food brand that contains corn.

Again Corn shows up as the second ingredient. It shows up in the form of a Gluten meal, which basically means after everything that may be nutritious has been removed from corn, they take whats left over and call it Gluten Meal.

Whole Wheat flour is the third ingredient. This ingredient is also one we don't want to see in dog food. Whole Wheat flour is one ingredient that has been linked to numerous cases of dog allergies.

The fourth ingredient, Animal fat is an ingredient in which it is impossible to correctly identify the source. When you can't identify the source usually this means that it is of lower quality.

With all these unwanted ingredients in the first five ingredients it would be hard to recommend this food to anyone. People are drawn to this food due to the cheaper price. One must think about the future. Ingredients in Beneful dog food have been linked to cases of allergies. Allergies = Vet Visits and Vet Visits = $$$. Your dogs food is an investment of your dogs health.
