Not to Hijack this post.... but it is on a wet/dry matter measure (similar to dog food). When baked at a extreme temp the nutritional properties diminish substantially in progeins. In this case, I actually took it from their website.... that company does the same thing, worse even on a wet/dry matter basis measurement.

Salmon, Whole Herring, Wheat Germ, Wheat Flour, Kelp, Rice Bran, Spirulina, Pea Protein, Whole Shrimp, Astaxanthin, Canthaxanthin, Potassium Sorbate, Ethoxyquin A1:Q19 BHT (Preservative), BHA (Preservative), Natural and Artificial Colors, Ascorbyl Monophosphate (Source of Vitamin C), Niacin, Inositol, Folic Acid, Biotin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

Guaranteed Analysis:
Min. Crude Protein….35%
Min. Crude Fat……….10%
Max. Crude Fiber…….4%
Max. Moisture………. 8.5%
Max. Ash……………..9%

Breaking it down- it is mostly made of wheat. Yucky.

Giving back creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone more successful (as long as they cycle!)
