I have a question about adding raw meat to a dehydrated food, and how that affects the percentage of protein.

For example, Honest Kitchen Embark packaging says 29% protein. If I add ground turkey to it, what does that do to the percentage of protein?

Kat Pennick from The Honest Kitchen gave me the ratios as follows:
For every 1 dry cup of Thrive, Love or Embark, you can add ½-1 cup of meat. Then, to compensate for the meat, you will want to reduce the dry mix by ¼ - ½ cup.
Example: 5 cups of Thrive (DRY) reduced to 3.75 cups then add 2.5 cups of ground meat.


Hope this helps! :)

Thank you!

So.... if I add in meat at this ratio, do the overall protein numbers stay the same?

I'm clueless. I'm just trying to determine what happens to the percentage of protein if you add meat. Does it increase dramatically? Stay the same? Lower? Does a lower 21% protein meal become a high protein meal?

Help!! :)
