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.

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.

Pea Protein is a plant-based protein source. It is a rich source of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. These amino acids support healthy muscle growth and maintenance, and help to maintain a healthy immune system.

Pea protein is also a good source of fiber, which can support healthy digestion and maintain regular bowel movements. In addition, pea protein is hypoallergenic and easily digestible, making it a great option for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities.

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.
