Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Deboned Chicken is the skin and flesh of the chicken without the bone. It's just that and therefore it is an excellent source of healthy protein for dogs.

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.

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.
