Hydrolyzed protein is a protein that has been at least partially hydrolyzed or broken down into its component amino acids. While many means of achieving this exist, two of the most common methods are prolonged boiling in a strong acid (acid-HVP) or strong base, or using an enzyme such as pancreatic protease to simulate the naturally occurring hydrolytic process.

USES

Hydrolyzed protein is used in the manufacturing process of certain specially formulated hypoallergenic dog foods for dogs and puppies that suffer from allergies caused by certain protein types in standard commercial dog food brands. The protein contents of the foods are split into peptides which reduces the dog's immune system from recognizing an allergic threat.

Whatever you say, Janet!  Smile

When I read a dog food label, I want to see that the first ingredient is an animal protein meal... chicken meal, beef meal, etc. "Meal" means that all the water was removed from that specific ingredient before the product was made. If it just lists "chicken" as the first ingredient, once the water is removed from that chicken (to make that product), that chicken would technically be further down the ingredient list

I'm not sure I explained that very well, but just be sure when you feed your pet kibble that the ingredient list has an animal protein MEAL as its first ingredient.

You explained it okay. My vet though said, that's why it's good to rotate different foods, so they don't get stomach problems.....after so many years, they may become intolerant. Also, the probiotic has animal protein meal as an ingredient. It seems to be working, much better than the one the other vet had him on for all those years.

Well, I don't ever recall having a dog with stomach problems here. There are certain things I do require in a product I feed my dogs, and one of them is probiotics. I also judge that food by my dogs' reactions to it, including the dogs' physical condition after being on it for a few weeks.

Here is the Diamond Naturals Chicken and Rice:

Chicken, chicken meal, whole grain brown rice, peas, cracked pearled barley, pea flour, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), dried beet pulp, egg product, natural flavor, flaxseed, salmon oil (source of DHA), potassium chloride, salt, choline chloride, dried chicory root, kale, chia seed, pumpkin, blueberries, oranges, quinoa, dried kelp, coconut, spinach, carrots, papaya, yucca schidigera extract, dried Lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product, dried Bacillus subtilis fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried Bifidobacterium animalis fermentation product, vitamin E supplement, beta carotene, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, niacin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid. Contains a source of live, naturally occurring microorganisms

As I said previously, I normally do not want to see "chicken" as a first ingredient, but since "chicken meal" is the second ingredient in this, I am satisfied since it then becomes the first ingredient when the water is removed from the "chicken" and that drops further down on the ingredient list.

My dogs love this product, and it does taste good (yes, I did taste it). What I really love is the dogs' condition since they have been on this food. It is a great product!

By the way, I now have eight dogs who are 10 and up.... no stomach issues.
