Meal is simply meat that has been dried, some fat has been removed, all water has been removed and it has been ground. Consistent with all manufacturers of dog food, we use ‘meal’ as well as ‘meat, poultry or fish’ in our recipes to ensure the right consistency of our kibble. It's important that the ingredient statement list a "named" meal, such as chicken meal, salmon meal, beef meal, turkey meal, menhaden fish meal (menhaden is a type of fish). If the label just says, "meat meal" (not naming the animal), then you don't know what animal that "meal" comes from (it could be anything). So you are always wanting to see the name of the animal the meal is coming from.
