FWIW, one of my Goldens has an allergy to both chicken and white potato (he' s fine with sweet pots) and I've trialed both foods you mentioned in my pack's feeding rotation. With the Nutrisca's higher fiber, low-mod calories, had to feed comparatively more of it to maintain weight. This may work well for certain dogs that are overweight, inactive, diabetic, and/or easy keepers, but it wasn't a good fit for my pack. I'm also not overly keen on the company.
Eagle (particularly Holistic Select) has a better reputation, but I found that particular food to be rather average. A bit low in protein & fat for my crew, but again, that may be ideal for some other dogs. Keep in mind both this formula and the Fromm contain eggs, which if from a chicken, could also be problematic.
