The Honest Kitchen pet foods goes through a stringent taste test… by humans! In addition to pet food regulations, The Honest Kitchen employees actually taste every ingredient that goes into our recipes, are tasted again as part of a standard human food organoleptic test, after production. If it’s not safe for humans to eat, it’s not considered for our pets.
All the recipes meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO (The Association of American Feed Control Officials), which is the legal way of saying, it’s just like the healthy whole food you eat, but formulated especially for pets. The Honest Kitchen also has a letter of No Objection from the FDA, to label their foods Human Grade? Their entire supply chain and production process have been reviewed by the FDA on two separate occasions, to earn The Honest Kitchen this distinction.
