AAFCO Definition: Chicken Meal

By

Definition: Chicken Meal: chicken which has been ground or otherwise reduced in particle size.
Examples:
Chicken meal is often used in dry cat food. The quality of the protein will depend on the type and amount of chicken meat in the mixture, as well as the amount of bone and connective tissue processed with the meat. Although better than chicken by-product meal, chicken meal is generally a lesser quality of protein source than chicken meat.
