The label does not even tell you what kind of meat !
Vegetable oil sort of hints of recycled restaurant grease -- says source of omega 6 -- which you have in abundance because of all the grains -- NO omega 3 (which is anti inflammatory and harder to get ) -- oh boy so much wrong.
The last thing you want to do is add more wheat .
