It actually looks quite good to me, though some of the names are not what is used over here. What is poultry oil and poultry gravy?

Not a fan of the poultry oil and poultry gravy, potato starch and beet pulp and not very much meat but that's just my opinion

What, specifically ARE poultry oil and poultry gravy?
Poultry fat I know.

Figure its a kibble there has to be some carb for extrusion.

Beet pulp - my maini ssue is GMO but then I dont' feed chicken (who are fed GMO grain) for same reason. I don't know if chicken are fed GMO corn in UK though or if beets are GMO.
