Blue Buffalo Basics Grain-Free Turkey & Potato Ingredient Analysis

  • Deboned Turkey
  • Turkey Meal
  • Tapioca Starch
  • Potatoes
  • Peas

Deboned turkey is a quality source of animal protein – it is also a complete protein that contains all of the essential amino acids your dog needs.

Turkey meal provides the same nutritional benefits as fresh turkey but it has been cooked to remove moisture, making it a much more concentrated source of protein.

Tapioca starch is a gluten-free and grain-free carbohydrate that provides dietary fiber as well as essential vitamins and minerals.

Potatoes are another source of grain-free carbohydrate and they are rich in folate, niacin, thiamin, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.

Peas are rich in plant protein and dietary fiber, plus they contain beta-carotene, Vitamin 6, Vitamin C, folate, and phosphorus.
