Vitamins, Minerals, and Preservatives
by ferretpapa Apr 27, 2021
The food chart will now identify most vitamins, minerals, amino acids, additives, preservatives, and artificial flavors and colors. More will be added as I see that some are missing.
Foods with limited ingredients get a small bonus. These types of ingredients will no longer count towards the ingredient total because they're not really something that can be noticeably consumed. And most vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are good for the ferrets anyway, so they shouldn't be punished for having more of them.
Some manufacturers kind of "cheated" anyways, by just saying "vitamins and minerals" instead of listing them all out, so previously those foods were incorrectly getting a bonus for having limited ingredients. Now all foods will be ranked fairly regardless of how the ingredients are listed out.
I did notice that almost every food was now getting that bonus, so I made it more exclusive and set the maximum number of ingredients to 10 instead of 20.
