    Default What does Meal stand for?

    When it says on dog food ingredients lamb meal, chicken meal what exactly does the Meal stand for? I am looking into better kibble for my three and I have looked at Orijen and Arden grange and they all got Meal listed in their ingredients.

    it would be something like meats that are freeze-dried after cooking, such as for backpacking and emergency food rations...
    However, this doesn't mean that all meat meal is of poor quality and should be avoided. Just like with any other dog food ingredient, there are many different levels of quality
    The following website has some really useful information for finding out about named ingredients -

    All that means is meat that has been processed so that the water has been removed.
