Earthborn Holistic® Primitive Feline Dry Food

I found another food that I am curious about. It doesn't seem to be as good as Petcurean Go! Fit + Free or Orijen but it's a lot cheaper too.

Thoughts on this? :-o

I don't really like that pea protein, peas, and potatoes are so high up on the ingredient list. There is really no meat either, just meals.

Ingredients:
Turkey Meal, Chicken Meal, Pea Protein, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Peas, Potatoes, Dried Egg Product, Herring Meal, Salmon Meal, Ground Flaxseed, Pea Fiber, Natural Flavor, Sweet Potatoes, Whitefish Meal, Blueberry Fiber, Cranberry Fiber, Choline Chloride, Apples, Blueberries, Carrots, Spinach, Cranberries, Canola Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Taurine, DL-Methionine, L-Lysine, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Sulfate, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Calcium Pantothenate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Zinc Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite, Cobalt Carbonate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Yucca Schidgera Extract, Rosemary Extract, Dried Lactobacillus Plantarum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococus Faecium

As dry foods go, this is one of the better ones, but not the best. The lack of fresh meats and the Pea Protein are the major factors that lower it's quality. There are certainly many foods out there that are much, much worse
