Dog Food Healthier Than Fast Food

I hope KFC doesn’t think I’m after them, because I really do love KFC. But the U.K.’s The Sun just released this stunning (sarcasm here) report on new research conducted by John Searle, a scientist from the Global food-testing lab in Burton upon Trent:

Tins of pet food are better for you than many fast food meals, boffins have discovered.

Loads of pet food brands scored better than dishes served by High Street chains in research to measure fat, salt and sugar levels.

Nutrition experts discovered that Gourmet Gold cat food has just 2.9g of fat per 100g — a mouth-watering EIGHT TIMES less than the percentage found in pieces of KFC.

The level of fat was also far lower than a McDonald’s Big Mac and a Pizza Hut meal.

The lab tests by nutrition experts discovered that Cesar dog food uses just 4.4g of fat in every 100g — and has lower salt and sugar levels than many dishes served to humans.

Researchers found that KFC chicken pieces were the unhealthiest fast food on test. They contained 23.2g of fat per 100g and 1.9g of salt. Unbelievably, ADDING fries cut the fat and salt levels, with them falling to 12g and 0.7g per 100g.

Who would of thought?
