Herbs in dog food
The general terms 'herbs', 'culinary herbs', 'herbal mix' and so on can refer to any plants with leaves, seeds, or flowers used for their flavour, aroma, nutritional constituents or medicinal properties. This obviously includes a great number of ingredients with very different attributes and qualities. General terms like these are often used by dog food manufacturers to disguise the true contents of the food. This may be because the mixture changes from batch to batch or because an accurate list would put customers off or occasionally to prevent competitors from getting hold of the recipe.
