Chicken

Is a good source of quality animal protein. Not only does chicken contain valuable protein, but its fat has important nutrients, such as linoleic acid, that increases its nutrient value.

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.

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.

Potatoes

Good source of digestible carbohydrates.
