Sometimes its listed as high as the 4th or 5th ingredient. What is it?? This topic was modified 5 years ago by Tindaisy. August 16, 2014 at 8:29 am #49603 Report Abuse crazy4catsMember Good question. I bet they aren’t really so “natural”. Lol! Let’s see if anyone else has any ideas. August 16, 2014 at 8:52 am #49609 Report Abuse TindaisyMember I agree crazy4cats! The cat/dog foods I’ve checked; FROMM is the only one that does NOT have it in their food. Sometimes its listed as natural chicken flavor…….huh??? I know in our food, any time you see natural flavor listed, its MSG!!!! Bad stuff! Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
