What is wrong with by-products? Those are heart, lung, liver, kidneys, sweetbreads, chittlins and often reproductive organs too. Not my cup of tea, but my dogs LOVE all that stuff. Look up the definitions that producers are required to use. Meat meal is better than fresh meat in many cases - ingredients are listed in order of weight, so one pound of fresh chicken is mostly water and only 30% actual chicken protein. 1 lb of chicken meal is 100% protein. So if you've got fresh chicken and then corn on the list, when it's all dried and kibbled there is more corn than chicken. It it is chicken meal, then corn, there is actually more chicken once you take the water out.
