Is it a natural product? Unknown; the ingredient sources aren't clear.
Does it include any additives? Yes, to benefit the dog's health, like vitamins and minerals.
Wind, bad breath, fur & teeth benefits? A healthy coat and skin is aided by added oils and fats. Prebiotics and fibre in the diet help limit wind. Dry food helps ‘clean' the teeth and avoid bad breath.

BETA Light Adult Dry Dog Food with Turkey is a complete and balanced diet for adult dogs, made with 25% protein. It is put together to also support a healthly digestive system by added natural prebiotic. The main ingredient is cereal, of which are 52% wholegrain which is much healthier than processed grain. The next biggest ingredient is meat and animal derivatives - animal derivatives are not the best source of protein as the protein in them is not as digestible as pure meat cuts, but there is 'full meat' in there too. All in all, the diet is complete and balanced, just not from as well sourced ingredients when compared to other brands.
