Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Deboned Turkey is the skin and flesh of the turkey without the bone. It's an excellent source of healthy protein for dogs.

In addition to being a flavor that dogs love, turkey is also rich in Vitamin B6, Cobalamin, Magnesium, Sodium, and Potassium.

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.

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.
