    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 May 28 '14 at 6:49
  • apart from the alignment issues don't use [h] (latex normally warns about thatt and changes it to [ht] but [htp] is better) and \bf has been deprecated since latex2e was introduced in 1993) – David Carlisle May 28 '14 at 9:52

You can eliminate them via adding \RaggedRight form the ragged2e package:

Notes:

Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{ragged2e}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}[h]
    \centering
    \renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}
    \renewcommand{\tabcolsep}{0.2cm}
    \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|}
    \hline
     **\multirow{3}*{{\bfseries Ingredients}} & \multicolumn{2}{|p{3cm}|}{\bfseries\RaggedRight Composition of each kg of feed (gram)} & \multicolumn{1}{|p{3.5cm}|}{\bfseries\RaggedRight Minimum monthly requirement per turkey (gram)}\\\cline{2-3}**
      & {\bfseries Brand 1} & {\bfseries Brand 2} &   \\ \hline
     {\bfseries A} & 5 & 10 & 90  \\ 
     {\bfseries B} & 4 & 3 & 48  \\ 
     {\bfseries C} & 18 & 0 & 1 \\
