organic chicken as a dog food ingredient

Chicken is an excellent source of healthy protein for dogs. It is filled with essential amino acids to build strong muscles and help to maintain organs and tissue.

In addition to being a flavor that dogs love, chicken also delivers Omega 6 fatty acids that help sustain healthy skin and shiny coats along with B3 and B6 vitamins, phosphorous and selenium as well.

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.

Brown rice is the best kind of rice to be eating because it is a more wholesome source of fiber and carbohydrates. A perfect choice for pets, this kind of complex carbohydrate is easier for them to digest than other kinds of carbohydrates, such as corn and wheat. The bran portion provides essential B vitamins and has plenty of fiber to promote good colon health.

Barley has more protein than rice and is a slow burning carbohydrate that has a good effect on blood sugar levels.

Chicken Fat is a high quality source of energy and essential fatty acids. For example, chicken fat contains linoleic acid which is an excellent source of the Omega-6 fatty acids. Quality fats support a shiny, healthy coat in dogs.
