Turkey Meal Kibble Ingredient
Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Turkey is a protein source that supports muscle development and energy.

Turkey Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole turkeys that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Turkey meal is basically turkey with a longer storage time and no moisture. It's a protein rich food and also magnesium and zinc resource for the health of your dog’s skin and coat. 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.

Lentils are an excellent source of protein, fiber, potassium, magnesium, and iron. Lentils are high in dietary fiber, which helps keep the digestive system moving and supports the growth of healthy gut bacteria. Eating lentils can increase stool weight and improve overall gut function.

Furthermore, lentils contain a broad range of beneficial plant compounds called phytochemicals. These phytochemicals include flavonoids and lignans, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
