Meat Protein Isolate
This is the required regulatory term for a highly beneficial and bioavailable protein isolate derived exclusively from pork meat. One of the most pure forms of protein available, and utilized by Wysong as a direct replacement for less ideal starch ingredients. An isolate is a more pure form of protein and less likely to cause food sensitivity reactions. The scientific support for protein isolates is vast and compelling. We encourage your exploration into the myriad benefits of protein isolates for both companion animals and humans.
