Hello and welcome to the forum. Using the Dog Food Directory it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to find a suitable product. Except for brewers yeast, most of the better quality dry foods will not contain the other items. Please can you say which type of food you wish to feed and if you have a budget?

I have done a search on the Dog Food Directory using the following filters:

Type of food - dry extruded/baked.
Food properties - clearly labelled, grain free.
Rating - 75% to 100%.
Avoid ingredients - all red, all yellow, all cereals/grains, yeast.

It returned six pages but this included puppy food - it can be narrowed down if you put your dog's age in the box at the top of the results. Using age 5 years it reduced the list to four pages. I can't reproduce the search on here so you will need to repeat it yourself.  I couldn't take the budget into account because you don't say how long it takes for your dog to use up the current bag and the DFD gives cost per day.
