    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    Whitefish and Salmon  are a good start that offers protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Pea protein is from processed peas with most of the starch removed. It is a good source of protein, with almost no carbohydrates. Also, there isn’t any dietary fiber either.
