Protein Content of Raw Meats Compared to Grain-Free Kibble

I just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who was curious about the protein content of raw meat in comparison to grain-free kibble.

There is a misconception that raw meat is high in protein when, in fact, it's quite low compared to many brands of high-quality kibble.

For example (in our case, 1lb of raw would equal 1 cup of kibble), per cup serving, Orijen contains a minimum of 40% protein. Per pound serving, lean beef brisket contains approx. 21.43% protein, chicken breast with skin contains approx. 18.1%, and dark meat turkey contains approx. 20.1% protein.

I was just wondering about what I've read about grain-free kibbles being "biologically appropriate" .
