This is really only of interest when trying to compare raw/kibble/wet foods. This is why orijen and evo look to have more protein in them than a raw food diet. Really they don't and are about on par.
Ahh gotcha.

Well, that's where the formula I posted is useful.

Well, I looked up the nutrition content of beef jerkey.

33%.

A generic steak (a lean sirloin i believe) I looked up, 20%. So beef at least, is not carrying 50% water as measured.

Nutrition Facts and Analysis for Snacks, beef jerky, chopped and formed

I checked out mostly chicken.. but you also have to do organ meats and stuff which are much higher moisture than muscle...

AND you can't compare human food as they don't do % by volume its usually % of calories.
