Gluten-free, grain-free, and, in this case, even meat-free. Preference base mix is an antioxidant-rich selection of fruits and veggies that takes away the prep work that comes with home cooking, and it's a great choice for dealing with multiple meat sensitivities because you get to pick the perfect protein for your pup.
Preference is made with 100% human food-grade ingredients (no animal-feed-grade ingredients are used) in a USDA-inspected facility. When you rehydrate Honest Kitchen pet foods with pure warm water, the color, taste, texture, and smell closely resembles fresh foods. They know, because they taste-test everything they make! Preference is minimally processed to preserve the natural nutrients present; the food undergoes no high heat processing or extrusion, and is therefore a highly concentrated source of natural nutrition. One cup of dehydrated food hydrates to make about 1 lb. of fresh food. The shelf-life of this product prior to re-hydration is approximately 12 months.
