Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Salmon is a high protein food and also rich in omega-3 fatty acids while having very low saturated fat.

Omega-3s moisturize the skin and fight skin disorders and the vitamin B12 in salmon keeps blood and nerve cells healthy.

Menhaden Fish Meal offer an excellent source of highly concentrated animal protein as well as the essential fatty acids and other nutrients menhaden fish contain.

Menhaden fish is found in Atlantic coastal waters and due to it's oily flesh, it's not an appetizing food to humans.

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.
