Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food Acai Formula
November 18th, 2021
We recently got a tip from a reader who said he analyzed over 435 fish foods (435!) and found many deceptively named after a “minor ingredient” in the product. One of the products was Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food Acai Formula, which lists “1% Acai berries extract” as the last of seven ingredients. The first ingredient? “Fish and fish by-products.” (So much for fish being friends, not food.)
Fish and fish by-products, grain, crustaceans, vegetable by-products, yeast, minerals, 1% Acai berries extract.
Under federal law, ingredients in pet food must be listed in descending order of predominance by weight. So the next time you’re shopping for fish food, you might want to check the ingredients before you buy.
Here are some other fish food products that fail to live up to their name:
