Deboned Salmon

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.

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.

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.

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.
