Proteins from food are main source of food allergies in this diet they've been hydrolized (predigested) so they don't cause allergic reaction.
This food is mostly used for dietary trials (elimination diets) in which you first "cleanse" your pet of allergens (it takes about 4-6 weeks for allergens to be completely eliminated from the organism) and then start introducing one by one source of protein to see which one causes the reaction. It's the only 100% sure way to know what your dog is allergic to.
You can also use this food as regular diet if you don't want to go through trials, but it's too expensive, and unnecessary.
