Ingredient Quality

9 out of 10

  • Contains unspecified animal sources, which are a less expensive source of meat While protein from animal sources is an important ingredient that’s highly digestible, the animal source should be named. You will want to see beef, salmon or chicken, not animal, fish or poultry. Unnamed protein sources are of much lower quality, especially meals, which are typically from rendered waste. Learn more
