Chicken With Peas and Carrots Recipe

Ingredient Review

The first ingredient is chicken. Although chicken is an excellent protein source, raw chicken contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of chicken is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.

The second ingredient is pea flour. Pea flour is made from roasted peas which have been processed into a powder. It's naturally rich in protein and dietary fiber.

The third ingredient is potato flour. Potato flour is a gluten-free carbohydrate source made from whole potatoes. Because the entire potato (including skin) is used, potato flour does provide a notable amount of vitamins and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.

The fifth ingredient is whole pea. Whole peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.

Next we have chicken fat. Chicken fat is typically collected while cooking chicken using a process called rendering. Chicken fat is a relatively high quality source of essential fatty acids. In particular, chicken fat is high in linoleic acid, an important omega-6 fatty acid.

The next ingredient is dried tomato pomace. Dried tomato pomace is a by-product of tomato manufacturing. It's considered a controversial ingredient because many people believe it is an inexpensive low quality filler. However, tomato pomace provides a notable amount of dietary fiber, B vitamins, Lycopene, and vitamin A. Although it is a very inexpensive ingredient, it is not nutritionally empty.

Then we have cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.

Moving on, we have sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.

Moving on with this review, we have carrot. Carrots are an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals. In addition, carrots are rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant which is a precursor to vitamin A.

The next ingredient in this review is apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.

Our next ingredient is split pea. Split peas are a good source of dietary fiber and minerals. They also provide a notable amount of plant based protein.

green bean is the next ingredient in this recipe. Green beans are naturally rich in dietary fiber and numerous vitamins and minerals. They also supply a notable amount of plant based protein.
