To interpret this information you need to know how to read the numbers. These are considered parts per million and anything under 10 parts per million is considered not to have any of those particular preservatives in the product. In other words, 0-10 ppm means there is none (no measurable amount) in the food.

* Naturox™ is an all natural free flowing antioxidant for use in the preservations of oils, fats, fat soluble vitamins, flavors, aromas, carotenoids and other oxygen-sensitive material.
Ingredients: Natural mixed tocopherols, Rosemary Extract, Citric Acid, Vegetable Oil, Mono and Diglycerides, Silicon Dioxide.
Note: all are FDA approved ingredients.

Digestibility Studies

All foods are different. Their ingredients vary, not only in their bio-availability, but also in their digestibility, appropriateness and nurturing ability to the system as a whole. What cannot be digested is of little use to the animal, except as roughage. Viand Pet is proud of the digestibility, bio-availability, and nurturing abilities of all its products. The chart below reflects this.
