I will color code for you ....
BLUE= IMHO and most agree good to great
Orange = Fine for most but can be an issue or a generally thought of as decent
Magenta = I would stay away from ...Chicken
This is very good but it is 66% water and after cooking yeilds corn gluten the MAIN protein and IMHO not great , corn gluten meal
Helps with UTI health for balancing chicken but NOT A good MAIN protien, soy protein concentrate
HIGH ALLERGEN .. PROBABLY GMO and can be traced to hyper thyroid issues in some , chicken meal
Concetrated meat and high in protein MANY consider it the best protein for a DRY food , dried egg product
NOT the best quality but it is a GOOD protein and vitamin source , animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E)
WHOOSE ??? chicken , poultry( often chicken just may have traces of turkey or other fowl ) is IMHO better , soybean meal
see the soy protein, wheat flour
HIGH ALLERGEN but it is a digestable grain , brown rice
harder to digest than just rice , fish meal
WHOOSE ???, oat meal
, natural flavor, fish oil, salt, phosphoric acid, zinc proteinate, dried sweet potatoes, dried spinach, blueberry pomace, choline chloride, Vitamin E supplement, taurine, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, manganese proteinate, ferrous sulfate, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), copper proteinate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, L-Lysine monohydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, calcium iodate, folic acid, Vitamin D-3 supplement, biotin, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), sodium selenite.
