First 5 Ingredients:
- Chicken Meal

- Rice Bran
- Chicken Fat
Chicken meal is rendered parts from grinding carcasses and/or remains after the main meat is removed. There are pros and cons to meal. Its advantage is it provides lots of protein with an effective profile of the essential amino acids that a dog needs for a relatively lower cost and contains low moisture content relative to straight forward named meat ingredients. However, it goes through an extensive heating and processing to ensure it is safe to eat. Not much flavor is preserved and other nutrients are wiped out.
Brown rice is good source of fiber and contains more nutrients than white rice. It does contain a high amount of carbohydrates.
Rice flour is made from removal of the husk of rice, and then the raw rice is grounded down to a flour. The final product itself is high in carbohydrates.
Rice bran is the outer layer of whole grain brown rice; it surrounds the endosperm. This part of the rice is rich in dietary fiber and contains other carbohydrates too.
Chicken fat is a good for dogs in the right amount, since dogs can effectively metabolize fat and use it for various body system functions, including for energy.
