By home cooking and feeding organic you will avoid chemical preservatives and food dyes. Our dogs and cats can get inflammation and digestive problems from the following items not found in their natural diets so avoid them.
Corn (and all types of corn syrup)
Potato, if the potato is green under the skin (not sweet potato)
I make Annie peanut butter treats as well as allow her an occasional lick of peanut butter or a few raw peanuts. The amount is always very limited and the treats are made with natural peanut butter low in both sodium and sugar. Once in awhile I also give Annie potato but I'm careful to check for that telltale greenness under the skin.
In my humble opinion, this is a good starting point in exercising more control over the quality of your furry family member(s) food.
