Deboned Chicken

This is your main protein ingredient. While not including the weight in bones, this ingredient is likely to still be heavier due to water content. This shouldn’t be considered the main protein ingredient.

Chicken Meal

Chicken meal is a dry, rendered product from whole chickens that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It looks like brown flour and it's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Chicken meal is basically chicken with a longer storage time. It's a protein rich food and also Vitamin B12, Tryptophan, Choline, Zinc, Iron, and Copper resource. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

Turkey Meal

Provides yet another quality source of concentrated protein. Like chicken meal, turkey meal is a concentrated form of meat which can provide up to 3 times more protein than it’s fresh counterpart.

Brown Rice

A whole grain, provides an easy to digest complex carbohydrate once cooked. Brown rice is low in fat and is an excellent fiber source. It also contributes to some of this diet’s protein content.

Peas

Peas are healthy, grain-free filter alternative that contain complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, phytonutrients, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. They are also rich in protein and high in fiber.

Lutein in peas is an anti-oxidant good for heart, skin, and eye health. Sterols content in peas help lowering cholesterol. However, peas may be related to Canine Heart Disease and FDA is actively investigating this. 93 percent of reported foods in DCM cases contained peas and/or lentils.
