Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

While this doesn’t include the weight of bones, the fact that this isn’t dehydrated or a meal product means that much of the weight is liquid. If you want a product that is mainly salmon, you’ll have to look elsewhere. This one has some, but it is probably not the main protein in the food.

Salmon Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole salmon that has been through some processing to remove water and fat.

Salmon is a high protein food and also rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s moisturize the skin and fight skin disorders.

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.

Pea Starch is a complex carbohydrate that is slowly digested and absorbed, providing a sustained source of energy. Pea starch is also a good source of fiber, which can support healthy digestion and maintain regular bowel movements.

In addition, pea starch is hypoallergenic and easily digestible, making it a great option for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities.

Sweet Potatoes are an excellent source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. They don’t cause food sensitivities in dogs and also are an excellent source of beta-carotene, phytochemicals, and carotenoids – all which are healthy immune supporting antioxidants.
