Fromms Adult changed their recipe

They removed corn but the beet pulp and DL-Methionine are both still there.

I guess change is a gradual process!

When I checked the ingredients on the Fromm's website - although only for the Four Star - the website clearly read "No Beet Pulp". I checked the site after my inquiry to Fromm's re the Vitamin K issue - and their reply that Vitamin K had been removed from the food some time ago - the website had not been updated. Perhaps it is in some of their other products? My Eskie just eats the Salmon A La Veg or other Four Star if sold out - Eskie's do well on Fish based diets.

Methionine is ok, menadione is bad. ;)

Beet pulp isn't the worst, but IMO, if you can avoid it, do.:shrug:

Yeah, the regular Adult food is different than the Four Star series. Its the one in the purple bag (now silver and purple).

That's a relief! What is the difference between the two (methionine and menadione)?

menadione is a vitamin K supplement (K3) and methionine is a regular amino acid.:)

(amino acids help build proteins and repair dna and things like that.)

I'm glad to hear that, Prin. I was reading the earlier threads about menadione and got the two mixed up.

Well, that's an easy thing to do but here's a hint: The one that starts with "meth" is bad. :evil:

OMG...I can't believe I screwed that up. :o That's what I get for having a couple beer before posting last night. :D

Yes, the "men" is the bad one and the "meth" is the good. :crazy:
