Watching a Purina Dog Chow commercial showing brown, red, green, yellow , pieces of crud. Advertised to have fewer calories. I'm thing , WHAT. Dogs have limited color recognition why all those colors.

Well, only one reason. Too look good to the humans that buy the stuff.

Here are the ingredients of this " healthy" stuff

Purina® Dog Chow ® Light & Healthy Brand Adult Dog Food

Whole grain corn, soybean hulls, meat and bone meal, whole grain wheat, soybean meal, soybean germ meal, corn germ meal, egg and chicken flavor, corn gluten meal, chicken, animal digest, soy flour, turkey by-product meal, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), glycerin, salt, calcium carbonate, Vitamin E supplement, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Red 40, zinc sulfate, sulfur, choline chloride, ferrous sulfate, Yellow 5, Blue 2, manganese sulfate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, Vitamin B-12 supplement, garlic oil, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin D-3 supplement, calcium iodate, folic acid, menadone sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), biotin, sodium selenite.

The only food I see is "chicken" hidden down in the pack. And those colors thrown in. Yuck!
The second ingredient is "soy bean hulls " . On the farm I can't ever remember our dogs eating soy bean hulls as a choice.
