The Honest Kitchen products are guaranteed 100% human-food-grade because they are not produced in a pet food plant. They are made in an FDA approved, human-food-producing facility in Southern California, that makes the very same foods you eat.
The Honest Kitchen foods contain absolutely no by-products, added salt or sugar, chemical preservatives, artificial colors or flavors and NO beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn, or soy. These are common allergens for dogs and can cause dry, itchy skin, hair loss or dullness, lack of energy, chronic ear problems and chewing at the feet.
Zeal was specifically crafted for sensitive dogs. What was left out of this diet is almost as important as what is in it. Zeal, like all of the Honest Kitchen diets, doesn't contain corn, soy, rice, beet pulp or wheat. It is also grain-free, gluten-free and free of flaxseed and white potatoes. Suitable for adult maintenance; sensitive dogs; moderate activity levels.

About The Fish:
The fish is guaranteed Ethoxyquin-free because like all the Honest Kitchen products, it is 100% human-grade. They use only food grade, all natural antioxidants for freshness. Their Icelandic Haddock is wild caught using a line and hook, in the cold clean waters off the coast of Iceland. Their Blue Whiting is wild-caught in the waters of Scandinavia and the Arctic. It is one of the most abundant fish stocks in the semi-pelagic water masses of the northeast.
Understanding that they are utilizing our planet's natural resources by using wild-caught fish (which is more environmentally sound than farm-raised fish), a portion of the profits from every box of Zeal, will be donated directly to several Marine Conservation Initiatives, including The Nature Conservancy, Blue Ocean Institute and World Wildlife Fund.
Why does it cost so much?:
The cost of fish is much more expensive than the other proteins Honest Kitchen uses, such as chicken, turkey and beef. They are extremely conscious of our environmental paw print, so only sustainably caught, human grade fish would do. Honest Kitchen works closely with their suppliers to keep costs in check as much as possible and as the volumes increase they may have opportunities for cost savings which we will of course pass on to our customers.

Hydrate with fresh, warm water. After hydration, a process that takes just 5 to 10 minutes, these foods should be consumed right away. Any leftover food should be treated like fresh food, and refrigerated up to 48 hours or discarded.
A full standard US Measuring Cup of dehydrated food (which is 8 oz by volume or 4 oz by weight) will hydrate to make about 1lb of fresh food.
