I have noticed that a lot of kibble lists the protien content as "minimum". (Such as 25% minimum.)

Anyone know WHY they list the minimum rather than the Maximum? Heck, just because it is 25% minimum, doesn't necessairly mean that it isn't 40% Maximum.

But the way it is worded, they still CAN. Just because it SAYS 25% minimum, what is to stop the food from ACTUALLY being HIGHER in protien?

Just what I said, if it says 25% protien MINIMUM, how do we KNOW that it is actually 25% and not higher?

I guess you don't. Maybe the manufacturer doesn't either

I never thought about this before you brought it up. Do all foods label like this?
I don't know if they ALL do, but all of the ones I have looked at do. (And while it SEEMS like I have looked at ALL of them
, I really haven't.)

I HAVE looked at 5 different brands of "Grain Free" kibbles and they ALL list the protien as "minimum".
