Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Lamb Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole lambs that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. This is a combination of the flesh, bone, as well as the skin of the lamb. It's better to check the quality of the source otherwise, traces of unremoved wool and grain (from the stomach) can be food.

Lamb meal promotes a healthy heart as well as healthy skin! For dogs with sensitivities, lamb meal is a highly digestible protein source providing essential amino acids and fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals for muscle development and energy.

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.

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.

Again due to the lack of grains in this diet, pea flour has been included to boost carbohydrate levels without adding gluten. Pea flour is also an excellent source of vegetable based protein and certain antioxidants.
